British Airways is gradually releasing more information about the roll-out of its Club Suite and the routes that it will fly. The latest update comes in the form of a list of destinations as well as the start dates as far ahead as March 2020. The new destinations will be flown by BA’s two retrofitted 777-200 aircraft, which the airline plans to bring into service by the end of the year.
As is shown by BA, this is the current timeline for the next destinations to be operated by the retrofitted 777-200 with new Club Suites. The dates are allegedly the start dates that the aircraft will start operating the route. There are variations in the number of times per week and the flight number, which are subject to change.
2 January — Seattle (SEA)
14 January — Nairobi (NBO)
28 January — Chicago (ORD)
30 January — Abuja (ABV)
30 January — Tel Aviv (TLV)
1 February — Kuwait City (KWI)
2 February — Boston (BOS)
20 February — Jeddah (JED)
11 March — Philadelphia (PHL)
The following routes are initially scheduled to be operated one-time-only (two times in the case of Dammam) by the aircraft:
8 & 10 January — Dammam, Bahrain (BAH)
21 January — Newark, New York (EWR)
13 February — Dubai (DXB)
TPG UK reached out to BA for clarification on how frequently the above routes will operate and for how long but did not hear back by time of publication.
It’s worth noting that the above routes are highly subject to change. If you’re planning to check out one of the above routes in hopes of flying the retrofitted 777, it’ll be worth booking a flexible ticket in the chance that the aircraft is swapped.
This latest update surrounding the highly anticipated Club Suite comes after last week’s announcement that BA had moved up the date of the A350’s inaugural long-haul flight by a month. It also follows the news that the Club Suite would be going in direct competition with Virgin Atlantic’s new Upper Class suite on the crucial New York to London route.
