Coming back from Amsterdam, this short British Airways hop to London was surprisingly operated by a 767, though still in a European configuration, laid out with 2 seats, 3 seats and then 2 seats.

While the traditional Club Europe cabin has economy seats separated by an empty middle seat, on a 767, this is a bit different. The two ends consist of 2 seats, but it is worth noting that both seats can be occupied, and there is no empty seat next to you. In the center section, consisting of 3 seats across, the middle seat remains empty, so if you are looking for the best Club Europe seats in this cabin, you’re much better choosing a seat in the center column, since you’ll be guaranteed privacy.

That said, on this flight, the Club Europe cabin was fairly empty, so passengers on either side did end up getting an empty seat next to them from what I could see. Boarding took longer than usual due to the size of this aircraft, and there was a short delay due to congestion on the runway.

After take off, breakfast was served on a single tray, followed by a complete beverage service from the trolley. Consisting of cheeses, meats and a roll, this meal was a traditional European breakfast. To go along with it, I had tea and cranberry juice.

Because the flight was only timed at about an hour, meal service was wrapped up rather quickly and we prepared for landing.

My Take

If you’re flying Club Europe on this larger plane, make sure you get one of the aisle seats in the center section since you are both guaranteed an empty middle seat, as well as being on the aisle. Otherwise, service on this flight was standard for British Airways, and refills for drinks plentiful.

    Will all the intra-european planes be refurbished with the new interior introduced on the Airbus A320 family aircrafts?
    These seats look more padded and comfortable than the one I flew on from JER to LGW.
