British Airways’ Club Suites will be available across its Boeing 777 fleet by the end of next year.

The UK carrier is continuing to roll out the Collins Aerospace seat on its 777s with services between London and New York JFK already offering the product on every flight.

Collins and BA worked closely together on the design of the suite for several years and the effort has paid off with the seat proving a hit with passengers.

Club Suite was first rolled out in July 2019 on the first A350 and since then has been installed on the Boeing 787-10 aircraft.

It offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration.

Other features include 40 percent more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens with high-definition gate-to-gate programming and PC / USB power.

“When we launched our Club Suite product, it was a huge hit with our customers who loved the privacy the new seat offers,’’ BA head of inflight product Sajida Ismail.

“We are focused on the rollout of this product and other cabin enhancements to ensure we deliver on our commitment to provide the very best British quality, style and comfort for our customers.”

As part of the upgrade, the airline’s Club Kitchen is also getting a makeover with new Club chillers and built-in storage for snacks, drinks and other refreshments, allowing customers in Club World to help themselves to refreshments at their leisure.

The latest generation of the First cabin, including the introduction of the First suite door, will also continue to be rolled out across the airline’s B777-300 aircraft.
