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:
Port Of Spain
London Gatwick routes without First Class:
Cape Town (winter seasonal, three times weekly, from Monday 11 November 2019 to Saturday 28 March 2020)
Fort Lauderdale (suspended from Saturday 7 September 2019)
Lima (suspended for the winter from Friday 25 October 2019 until Sunday 29 March 2020)
Male, Maldives (winter seasonal from Sunday 27 October 2019 to Friday 27 March 2020)
San Jose, Costa Rica
St Kitts & Nevis
Toronto (suspended for the winter since Tuesday 24 September 2019 and is scheduled to resume from Friday 1 May 2020)
Please also note that BA’s fleet of Boeing 777s are undergoing a process of “densification” which will increase 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 will increase from 24 to 52 seats. The number of Club World business class seats will be reduced from 40 to 32.
