British Airways Club Europe British Airways Club Europe cabin.

Available on European and shorthaul routes from London Heathrow and London Gatwick.

Seat: Seats with 34" pitch in convertible cabins with a moveable divider. Airbus A319, Airbus A321 and Boeing 737-400 aircraft have seats in 2-2 arrangement. This is achieved by collapsing the ABC left hand seats with only A and C being used and expanding the DEF seats, again with only D and F being used. The majority of the Airbus A320 fleet operate in exactly the same way, however aircraft delivered from 2010 onwards have fixed seats, meaning that the Club Europe rows are in standard configuration. Boeing 767-300 operate in 2-2-2 configuration with the middle DEF seats collapsing to make seat D and seat F wider with seat E unused.

Baggage Allowance: Two pieces of checked baggage of up to 32kg each.
