The airline has returned to the South Terminal and reopened its Club and First lounges.

Here is the current status of BA’s long haul network at Gatwick. Some routes, notably Doha, Islamabad and New York JFK are subject to ad hoc and blanket cancellations.

Long Haul Aircraft

All BA long haul flights at Gatwick are operated with Boeing 777-200ER aircraft.

Currently, only aircraft in a three class configuration, with no First Class cabin, operate at Gatwick.

The Club World cabin features BA’s original “yin-yang” business class bed in a 2-4-2 configuration. Whilst Heathrow based Boeing 777 aircraft are being refurbished with BA’s new Club Suite, there are no plans to add this to Gatwick based aircraft.

Gatwick based Boeing 777s were refurbished over the course of 2018 and 2019 to add a larger World Traveller Plus premium economy cabin and to increase seating in World Traveller economy from 9 to 10 abreast.
