As first class continues to disappear, with airlines like El Al and Asiana set to eliminate the class this year, private suites have become all the rage in business class.

I wrote about British Airways business class suites a couple of months ago here.

 

The product launches on the A350 between London-Madrid in July and London-Toronto and London-Dubai in October. The plane will not have a first class cabin.

BA announced today that they will launch A350 service between London and Tel Aviv this December. That’s a huge step up from other airlines operating service between Europe and Tel Aviv with fake business class consisting of 3 coach seats with an empty middle seat.

The London to Tel Aviv market is hot, with Virgin Atlantic launching A330 service there starting in September and El Al using multiple daily Dreamliners between Heathrow and Tel Aviv.

It’s no surprise to see BA throwing their best product onto the route as well and it’s certain to be the best hard product available from any airline between London and Tel Aviv. The only question is, will there be enough demand for all of the premium seats on the route?

Love Flying

hino

Yes

Opinion

What sort of business class will Virgin Atlantic have?
Still not sure if it’s worth to go from NY to TLV with BA rather then Swiss and save on fuel

BA

I use BA for the TLV-NYC Route, Fuel charges not so high

bachur

if i book 2 seperate tickets from ny to london and then london to tlv all on ba, can i call up and have them link both reservation codes so the luggage transfers planes without having to go and retrieve the luggage.

yankel

why two separate?
taxes will be high leaving london
but you can likely ask when you check in in NY. shouldnt be an issue

dave

Yes you can- call or at airport..

weiss

swiss also have 777/a330 – but many times they changing the air craft just before the flight without any notice

Matis

Recently has been only on LX256 (not 252) and shouldn’t happen once the A340 fleet retrofit is done.

I cannot see that the BA product will beat out the LX throne seat in Business. That is truly awesome for a Business Class seat, and the LX service is unmatched by BA. IB has been running a decent Business class for some time out of TLV. What we need to see now is fo rEmirates to enter the TLV route. That will provide real competition. Just no one fall for flying El Al. Even with their new planes they still have the same arrogant crews with their disregard for any norms of customer service.
