Any thoughts around British Airways Club World Class (aka Business Class)? It is the cheaper option on my route but have never used it.

For what it’s worth, my only comparison was flying business class on United, and United was several levels lower than BA, no question.

Is it one of the newer 777s? Business class is pretty sweet on those...

BA has one of the worst business classes. If the price is a lot less, that’s understandable, but if it’s close, there are much better options.

The pic from DD1’s first article is accurate for their business class, just FYI. If you’re not paying your own money, go for it. I enjoyed it. But I paid myself when I went and I doubt I’d pay again. Screens were old and kinda crappy, and the seat configuration is a little odd. Comfortable, though, and the FAs were nice.

As TPG notes, BA is 8 across in a 777. Most other airlines are 6 or 4 across on a 777. It is clearly an inferior product.

There’s a lot of hate for the layout and whilst it has its shortfalls I’ve grown to quite like it. It works best when travelling in a pair although most of my trips are solo. The window seats are very private and great for sleeping on an overnight flight. The upper deck cabin on the 747 is great and has several seats which can be accessed without stepping over anyone.

Service was great when I flew british, but then I flew etihad and their business class was next level

Thanks for all the feedback. It sounds like if i can justify the additional $1000 for the next price level of business class i should do it.

People from other firms throw mad shade at Accenture, sometimes quite warranted, but every firm (especially MBB) has been pushing hard to build up their IT services/tech consulting side for a while now.
