I had arrived into London on British Airways' A319 from Geneva and was connecting onwards to Mumbai.
Security was a breeze and wasn't crowded at all, I headed straight to the British Airways Concorde Room lounge.
The lounge had a lot of seating options as well as a full bar.
It also offers a dining area called "Concorde Dining" where you can order food from an à la carte menu.
Service was efficient and the food arrived in a moments notice
After my visit to the lounge I headed straight to the gate
First Class passengers have a separate boarding queue.
Age: 19 Years
BA's First class cabin on the 777-200 are layed out in a 1-2-1 configuration. I was seated in 2K which is a standard window seat, I would recommend seat 1A and 1K because they are bulkhead seats and offer a wider legroom.
The seat is large and offers a lot of legroom although I would say it lacks privacy. There were headphones and a pair of slippers placed at my seat.
The windows have a second layer of glass and are illuminated.
The crew came around with a sleeper suit and amenity kit
A glass of water and warm nuts served after takeoff
Starter: Fresh Seasonal Salad
Main: Asian Buddha bowl w/ teriyaki prawns ( the prawns were delicious!)
Dessert: Fruit cobbler
Crew came around to turn the seat into a flat bed (Although as mentioned before, not much privacy)
I woke up to this view after a solid 4 hours of rest
Fruit as a starter before breakfast along with a mixed fruit smoothie and a croissant
Full English breakfast
A cappuccino to finish the meal
Started our descent into Mumbai
On finals into Mumbai
Welcome to Mumbai!
For a first class product it isn't the newest or even close to products that other airlines offer, British Airways now have upgraded their Club (Business Class) seats after several years and it offers a feature that even their 777 first class doesn't (a closing door which gives passengers more privacy). I believe that there is room for improvement especially in the seat design, the service overall was great and so were the crew.
