I was lucky enough to go an trip from London to Bangkok (& back again) on a British Airways 747, and have not one but two trip reports to share. The outbound flight was in First Class – hope you enjoy this (very!) comprehensive video review (and please hit the thumbs up button if so!): Link to British Airways First Class Review Video This was one of the last longhaul flights British Airways operated out of Terminal 3 (the Bangkok flight switched to Terminal 5 from Winter 2013) and the departure experience really suffered as a result – the advertised pre-flight dining menu was no longer available, the spa closed long before the flight left & the queues and service were far from first class. Onboard, things were far better – despite British Airways operating a cabin that was over 15 years old (BA have also have a ‘new first class’, and an ‘even newer A380 first class’ on other planes) the seat was clean & worked well – albeit with an old-fashioned décor. The service and food were excellent, and whilst BA’s competitors offer more space & privacy, this is a good step-up from BA’s business class; if you were paying list price you’d be better off on one of BA’s rivals, but British Airways offer regular sale fares that undercut the competition making this cabin a compelling proposition despite its shortcomings.
