A short while ago, we compiled a list of the British Airways routes from London Heathrow that operate with a first class cabin.
To complete the list, here’s a list of long-haul Gatwick routes that operate with and without a first class cabin.
It’s a relatively easy list to compile. BA’s routes from Gatwick are operated exclusively with either three or four class Boeing 777 aircraft.
Whilst a first class cabin is not sold on all routes, there is the possibility that a four class aircraft may be operated on a route on some days with no first class cabin on sale, with the normal Club World business class service provided to passengers seated in the first class cabin.
London Gatwick routes with First Class:
Barbados (winter seasonal)
Port Of Spain
London Gatwick routes without First Class:
Las Vegas (summer seasonal)
Orlando (summer seasonal)
San Jose, Costa Rica
St Kitts & Nevis
Please also note that BA’s fleet of Boeing 777s have undergone a process of “densification” which increased the number of economy seats from 9 to 10 a row.
In addition, on three class aircraft, the number of World Traveller Plus premium economy seats increased from 24 to 52 seats. The number of Club World business class seats reduced from 40 to 32.
