British Airways Club Suite Routes

Ultimate Guide for BA Club Suite, operated routes with the corresponding flight numbers, registration numbers, when airplanes will be retrofitted and more.

Introduction

Over the last years, BA wasn't really known to offer an excellent business class product. By introducing their new Club Suite with sliding doors, this has definitely changed now.

British Airways received the first club suite cabin with the A350-1000, in July 2019. The list below shows you all aircraft that are currently equipped with the new Club World Suites. It will grow significantly in the near future, and we will update the list as fast as possible when changes will occur.

There is of course still the possibility that dates will change, as not all the planes with the new cabin have arrived yet. This list represents not only the present, but also the future planned routes with the new club suite cabin.

Furthermore, you will also be able to see the last operated routes from a particular aircraft, simply click on the aircraft's registration number.

We publish business class deals from Europe and from North America on a daily basis, also these with the British Airways Club World Suite, when deals appear.

 

1. All BA Club World Suite Routes

These flights are always to/from London.

By clicking on a flight number, you can see on planefinder.net the last 20 flights with registration numbers, for that corresponding flight. You may then compare those registration numbers with our “BA Club Suite by registration number list”, to see how often a route is operated by airplanes equipped by the new business class.

Furthermore, some few of those routes are not operated every day by the Club World Suite cabin, flight numbers should only be considered as additional information.

Keep in mind that British Airways can change flight equipment at any given time without further notice. For any reason, like an aircraft that is out of service. As you booked a business class flight, you will of course be in business class, but without the new club world suite cabin.

2. How to check if a British Airways flight offers the new Club World Suite?

All of British Airways' new Airbus A350-1000 will offer the new Club World Suite.

Since October 2019, the first new Club world Suite cabin is available in a retrofitted Boeing 777-200 as well. From that moment on, more and more B777-200 will be retrofitted.

In 2020 the new Boeing 787-10 did also receive the club suite cabin.

The way you can tell if an aircraft has the new BA Club World Suite cabin is from the seat map. We use ExpertFlyer to check the seat maps, Seatguru works as well. This is what you need to look out for.

The seat map for the Club Suite looks like this, with a cabin layout that show a 1-2-1 seating arrangement.

Alternatively, you can also check via Google Flights if the business class seat is shown as “Suite”. However, this will not always work correctly.

3. British Airways planes equipped with the Club World Suite

    The latest update from BA says “all” 777s will be updated to Club Suite by the end of 2022 but I’ve seen reports that this excludes the Gatwick fleet. Any idea what the plan is for those? We’re flying Gatwick -> Cancun in November and it’s currently showing as Club World.

      We don’t think that you will have suites from Gatwick in November, and we have no information at the moment when the Gatwick fleet will have the suites.

    Are there any news anywhere if they will start flying the club world suites again on LHR-HND? Going in December 2022 and I really don’t want to fly the old rear-facing business class as I like my privacy – considering rebooking to Japan Airlines.

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      Nothing planned for the moment, can’t see the suites on that route until next year. I think it all depends on how many tourists will actually fly to Japan.

        If BA change an aircraft to Club Suites do they advise passengers? As there will be less seats I would think that they *should * do!
        We’re booked LHR to HND for June 2023.

          The last time I’ve booked a BA flight (in April) to Boston, they changed the aircraft from non-suites to suites and back to non-suites. I never got any information…

    It appears that they are flying the new suites on SFO LHR route on the 777 only according to the seat map in October of this year.
    Am I mistaken?

    Thanks

      Correct, it seems that BA285 for the outbound and BA284 will have BA suites, starting September. But as always, there’s a chance that they might change that to a later date…

    It seems the new club suite is no longer being offered on Heathrow/Atlanta flights.

    I am booked to fly in November 2022 and it was originally confirmed that it would be but just noticed the seat map has been updated to the old layout 🙁

    It’s still being advertised on their website as that route offering the latest cabins though?

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      For the moment they are not using the club suites on that route, that’s why we have removed it from the list as well. But it might be possible that this route will offer the club suites again in November. It all depends on how quick they will retrofit their planes.

      Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      Yes. It looks like BA has planned to use the Club Suites again starting November to Nairobi. But I think that all depends on how fast they will retrofit their planes.

    Since there are no flights between LHR-BKK until October 2022 will BA be using this time to refurbish these old ramshackle planes? They were in a sorry state in all classes last time I flew that route.

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      Well, BA is refurbishing the planes constantly, it’s hard to tell if they have enough planes with Club Suite until October for Bangkok. Only BA knows which routes they want to use their new planes first.

    Thank you for posting this page.

    However, a word of warning, after reading this page and checking the seat layout for two flights to Nairobi, BA have without notice changed the plane on both flights to the old BA club class.

    I called BA and the representative conceded ‘I am surprise this has happened as this the club suite was advertised internally on this route’.

    Also, no right of cancellation in the circumstances.

    Unfortunately, BA is still the old BA, scoring own goals and dissuading loyalty, so think twice about choosing BA Suite when you have other airline business options which are more reliable.

    We have opted this time to fly to Dubai in the summer with Emirates rather than BA for this reason. Another own goal BA!

      Hi, thanks for the comment, and you are absolutely right.

      You should consider this page only as a help to find the Club Suite routes.

      I have myself a flight in April to Boston, BA changed the plane three times already, from no suites to suites and now sadly again to no suites.

      Therefore, we’ve added this sentence already (under 1. All BA Club World Suite Routes):
      Keep in mind that British Airways can change flight equipment at any given time without further notice. For any reason, like an aircraft that is out of service. As you booked a business class flight, you will of course be in business class, but without the new club world suite cabin.

    Looking at BA flights from Bos now and I see seat map is 1 2 1 on both long legs to and from BOS, but seats are not angled like it shows on this page, they are straight forward, is that an indication of older one rather than club?

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      If seat map is 1-2-1 then it is the club suite. Expertflyers shows them angled, BA show them straight forward, but these are the same seats. Older biz seats are never in a 1-2-1 configuration.

    I’ve just had my BA7 flight to Tokyo cancelled in mid-March. BA5, BA6 and BA8 are all showing as 787s for that time of year now. Any idea how I can see if there will be any club suite routes for Tokyo at that time now? And what’s the best source of truth outside of BA’s own website

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      I just checked, it seems that now again BA won’t use the club suite on flights to Tokyo in 2021. They changed that already twice.
      As you mentioned you can check on BA’s website, but you can also check on Google Flights which seems to be very accurate now, or of course Expertflyer but that isn’t for free.

    Is the BA7/8 on the TYO route correct? I thought that route was operated by a 777? Flights for next year are showing as having club world, not suite.

      Thx for the info, it seems that BA operates this route only from January until end of March with club suites…

    I have been digging on the routes from Boston with the tail numbers above. When I go through the BA booking site it shows the old 2-3-2 configuration on the BA site.

    The flights would not be until mid November. Is this a BA lack of update or a chance to get an old cabin?

    Reply
    • premiumflights Post author

      BA booking site is not always up to date.
      I am not sure if they fly already with Club Suites to Boston, maybe they will load the new seat maps after the first flight ?
      But as mentioned, there is never a guarantee.

    They should put it on the BKK route as that route still have the oldest seats in any class! This 777 3 class need urgent upgrades as everything is broken!

      I guess they plan to put the new club world suite on all routes, but that takes time and money 😉

        I have booked Barbados with BA leaving Heathrow May 2021 and have been given seats in the new Club World suite. They obviously have a upgraded 777 flying Barbados next year.

          Thanks for the info, we’ve looked into it, it seems that BA flies to Barbados with an upgraded 777 starting April 2021.

        For the moment Club Suite is not planned for that route in 2021. This route is operated by 787-8 or 787-9 which will only be retrofitted in 2021 or even in 2022.
