The first British Airways-branded Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners will be rolling off of the production line soon and today the company has given the public its first look at what flying in the cabin of the new planes will look like.
The Evening Standard reports that the company has continued its partnership with Kennington-based design firm Forpeople to create the first class cabins that will be taking people to Delhi, Abu Dhabi, Kuala Lumpur, Muscat and San Jose in style.
The cabin has a "charcoal, silver and gold theme" and of course, features reclining seats. Split into pods, each has a 23 inch telly for in-flight entertainment, and a "smartphone sized device" which will apparently act as a second screen. It isn't exactly clear what this second device will do - though presumably it will help the user select what to watch on the big screen.
If you look closely you can almost see the point where rich people begin to mistake their wealth for virtue.
Each pod also features a small cupboard for storage, a magazine rack and natural light blasting in from two whole windows. Lights and seat position are controlled through a car-style dashboard.
Sadly BA hasn't released images of what it will look like in cattle class, but the sight of an actual magazine rack is enough to make Ryanair travellers (like me) jealous at how the 1 per cent fly. [Evening Standard]
