British Airways Sending The Stunning Club Suite To Sydney On Its Boeing 777

  • British Airways

    IATA/ICAO Code: BA/BAW Airline Type: Full Service Carrier Hub(s): London Heathrow Airport, London Gatwick Airport Year Founded: 1974 Alliance: oneworld Airline Group: IAG CEO: Sean Doyle Country: United Kingdom

First and business class passengers on the Kangaroo route from the UK to Australia will soon experience British Airways’ newest premium cabins. The one-stop service between London and Sydney on Boeing 777-300ER aircraft will feature the latest First Suites and the much-awaited Club Suite in business class.

Starting on October 30th, British Airways (BA) is operating flight BA15 from London Heathrow Airport (LHR) through to Sydney Airport (SYD) with the 777-300ER. BA15 will depart LHR on Sunday, October 30th at 21:35 and arrive in Sydney on Tuesday, November 1st at 06:55. The schedule shows a 1:25 hour stopover at Singapore Changi Airport (SIN) and a trip duration of 22:20 hours. The return flight BA16, which includes the Changi stopover, departs Sydney Airport at 16:30 and arrives in London at 05:25 the next day.

There will be eight First suites fitted with a door and featuring a 24-inch (61 centimeters) HD video screen, noise-canceling Meridian headphones, a la carte fine dining, luxury amenities, and pajamas. Unfortunately, unlike Emirates A380s, there are no onboard showers, but they are available in the Singapore first-class lounges.

Here’s the game changer for Sydney services

The big change is in business class with the long-awaited introduction of BA’s Club Suites, which are being progressively rolled out on the 777s. They are a familiar site on many routes, including London – New York JFK, as they have been on the airline’s Airbus A350 since its introduction in 2019 and are also its Boeing 787-10 aircraft.

The suites have sliding privacy doors, direct-aisle access and lie flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 cabin configuration. BA says they have 40% more storage space, including a vanity unit, mirror, and an 18.5-inch (47 centimeters) inflight entertainment screen. The suites also have PC/USB power, WiFi, and high-definition gate-to-gate programming. With two longish night sectors to navigate, a plush pillow and luxury White Company quilt will help with sleeping.

British Airways Chief Customer Officer Calum Laming said the airline is delighted to introduce the new First and Club Suite seats on the London-Singapore-Sydney service, which is its longest route. He added:

“Our new First and Club Suite seats have been created to suit the needs of our individual customers. Each seat has been designed to offer privacy, comfort and space – a place where we know our customers enjoy to work, rest and play.”

“We have worked hard to ensure every aspect of our First and Club world experience exudes the very best in British style and the quality that our customers expect from us. We hope that as more customers have the chance to experience it, they’ll enjoy traveling in it as much as we’ve enjoyed designing it.”

During the short Singapore stopover, first and business passengers and Oneworld Sapphire and Emerald frequent flyers can enjoy BA’s premium lounge. Located in Changi’s Terminal 1, the lounge reopened in May and is alongside the Qantas premium lounge on Level 3. It has all the usual amenities expected of a premium lounge, including showers, buffet, business center, charging facilities, restroom and wheelchair access.

With a business class that looks like first class, is this a winner for British Airways?
