Does anyone have any knowledge or preferences with regard to seating on BA A319 & A320 a/c used internally within the UK?

The aircraft is all Y seating configuration.

Thanks Dave,

I've looked at the seat maps previously and thought I'd ask in case someone had a personal experience. (good or bad)

We're only talking about 1:20 flight so no big bikkies.

Anything in the section of the plane in the area marked "Club Europe or Euro Traveller" is decent with a 34" pitch. The best seats are the exit rows plus row 1. Avoid the rows at the back of the plane marked "Euro Traveller" since they have a 31" pitch.

Being a domestic flight, there is no Club Europe cabin so all the plane will be available to economy

Thanks Dave.

We are currently in row 3. I'll bid for an exit however thought I'd ask first.

If I remember correctly, Dave's view on the seats at the back is correct. We were in Row 13 (I think) as we had a 9 month old, and the seats weren't too bad there. We had all three seats, however (2 adults, 1 child and an infant).

Don't get caught the way I did a few months ago. I needed an internal flight from London to Glasgow and booked it from the Qantas site using points. The site offered business class and economy seats on the BA aircraft, and I went for the business class option, thinking it would be the same sort of arrangement as they have here. Mistake! 16,000 points for a very ordinary seat, indistinguishable from economy (athough it was close to the front).

eeep... u dont want to do that again ( unless no status/ruby and prepared to pay 8000 points for lounge access )

You woulda had the same forward seat even with economy. The BA system , I believe, offers business class availability for awards primarily for those connecting onwards in business class to provide greater availability.

On the plus side with BA for paid tickets, buy a full fare domestic ticket and since they use business class booking codes , you can get business status credits on an economy fare

I'd have to say that BA domestic / Europe is more like Jetstar than QF or City Flyer. From what I observed, being at the front is all Club Europe gets you.

On domestic, there is no business class; I have not seen a hot breakfast on QF domestic in economy for a while whilst I have had it on BA

I disagree about the description for European; although not as nice as QF business, you do get a wider seat, lounge access, better meals and drinks services.

Dave, I stand corrected. I must admit it was on a flight to Amsterdam, and I only caught a glimpse when walking past!
