    British Airways Economy (short haul)

    Philadelphia to London
    on: B787-8

    5.1

As well as being narrow the pitch is only 31 inch and the recline of the seat is so large that if the person in front reclines ...

    BA780 LHR-ARN I was running a bit late so I used the First check-in area for the first time as there were queues at all other desks. Security quicker than usual. I spent 30 minutes in the F lounge before being called to the C gates. Effortless boarding. At the last minute I had changed my seat ...
