Video: One last flight on the British Airways 747 (warning: may cause nostalgia)

In this video we take a look back at what it was like to fly in the Upper Deck of the British Airways 747, in Club World (business) class. The footage was recorded in October 2019 on a flight from London Heathrow to San Francisco.

The Queen of the Skies did not disappoint, as ever. We didn’t know this would be our last transatlantic run on the BA Jumbo at the time (and we’re kind of glad we didn’t), but in the end it was a fitting farewell. BA has plenty of new planes these days and a much better business class product (the Club Suite) as well. But the 747-400 will always have a special place in our hearts.
