British Airways (BA) has unveiled new seats and cabin interiors for its short-haul fleet operating domestic and European services from London Heathrow and Gatwick airports.


The airline has followed the trend of utilizing new, slimline seat designs to create additional capacity.


Fitting-out work has begun on the first of 95 Airbus short-haul aircraft. The company said the new cabin designs “take inspiration from” the airline’s most recent fleet entrants, the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787.


The new, charcoal gray leather seats enable the addition of extra seats in the Euro Traveler (economy) cabin. In an A320, for example, capacity will rise from 162 to 168—an extra row.


In the A321, the longer fuselage allows for a larger increase—from 188 to 205.

I was hoping for topless cabins.

Aaah, these are the seats without seat pouches, just eye level rigid storage that just fits in safety card and a magazine, nowhere to store books, bottles of water or other small items. About the same knee room, but more claustrophobic at eye level.
