I just got notification from British Airways that “our seats have changed” for our flights to London and back next July-August. Actually it is the aircraft that has changed. We were on a 747, but starting 1 July the daily flight (BA 48-49) will be a 787-10.
We enjoyed 787’s on our trip to Japan in November, so this should be a nice change. Claimed to be 25% more efficient, and the business class seating (which we get with miles) is like private suites instead of the crazy yin-yang arrangement, with the window seat person (me) facing backwards.
So our last flights on the 747 will be in March. I will miss the “big birds”; I have always liked that plane, especially upstairs. But they are fuel-guzzlers.
