British Airways will include Airbus A350-1000 airliners to its Tel Aviv-London route starting in December 2019. British Airways’ new business class plan includes a ‘suite’ for each passenger – a personal compartment with a sliding door to give passengers a feeling of privacy. The business class seats open up to a two-meter-long bed. The suite also has a personal storage compartment with a service closet containing a make-up stand. The entertainment screens for these seats are 18.5 inches long.
56 of the 331 seats on the planes will have business class suites, 56 will be world traveler plus (improved tourist class) seats, and 219 will be regular tourist class seats. Like other new airliners, this model is equipped with a noise filtering system and more humid air in the cabin, a high ceiling, and lighting adjusted to the time of day (sun and darkness).
British Airways Israel country manager Yael Katan says, “British Airways’ selection of the route to Israel as one of the first routes on which the airliner will be operated is a vote of confidence in Israel by the airline, and shows the company’s great appreciation for this market.” Katan added, “British Airways has operated in Israel since 1932, before the state was declared.”
