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.

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 Club World Suites. It will grow significantly in the near future, and we will update the list as fast as possible when changes 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, if you click on the aircraft's registration number.

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.

    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

      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?

      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.
