Short Haul Routes operated by Wide Body Aircraft within Europe

ba club world suite review

Short haul flights, operated by wide body aircraft, are a nice way to fly in business class and offer often lie-flat seats.

The difference between a narrow-body and a wide-body aircraft

A narrow-body aircraft has one single aisle, and the number of seats is between two and six abreast. The most known narrow-body aircraft are Airbus 220, 319, 320 or Boeing 737, Dash 8…

A wide-body aircraft is wide enough to accommodate two passenger aisles with seven or more seats abreast. The most known wide-body aircraft are Boeing 747, 777, 787 or the Airbus 380, 340, 330….

 

Wide-body routes within Europe

Some routes within Europe are operated by wide body aircraft, either by local carriers or due to a 5th freedom route. Most of these routes that are operated by wide body aircraft offer lie-flat or angled flat business class seats.

These short haul flights are usually of a great value if you redeem your miles, and sometimes they can be purchased at a low price. You get the full experience of a business class, which you typically only have on long haul flights.

Below you can find a list by airlines, in alphabetical order, that are offering such flights within Europe.

However, keep in mind that an airline can change the type of aircraft for a route, even on short notice, which would not entitle you to compensation. Especially now with the Covid-19 situation, this could happen from time to time.

For all the flights we advise you to check for the aircraft type before the booking as many of these routes are also operated by narrow body aircraft.

      We didn’t add Icelandair, although it is a wide body aircraft, but seats are only recliner. Even though still much better than business class seats on narrow body aircraft within Europe.

    You can also fly edelweiss a330/340 in Europe:
    ZRH-PMI/PMI-ZRH every Monday (a330 in July/ August/ a340 in September-October) I think (may be canceled due to covid 19)

      I would say aircraft with an s which shouldn’t be there.
      Apart from that, I hope that you could find some useful information ;).
