It was the CEO of the British flag carrier, Sean Doyle himself, who said in an interview with the daily The Times: ” Hundreds of millions of pounds will be spent to refit BA’s 12 A380 double-decker superjumbos… It will have a new First Class – possibly on the upper deck for the first time – and new cabins including the popular Club Suite business class (present since 2019 in the A350-1000 Editor’s note) also upstairs, Premium and theEconomy “. British Airways A380s are currently configured to accommodate 14 passengers in First Class, 97 in Business Class, 55 in Premium and 303 in Economy (469 seats), but no details have been released on their future configuration – or the timing of these changes.
It should be noted that the company had signed a new contract two years ago five-year maintenance with Lufthansa Technik, guaranteeing the maintenance in service of the twelve A380s at least until August 2027.
