Yes, British Airways just announced that their upcoming long haul airplanes will not have first class, they’re gonna have only the Business and the Economy classes

From their site:

The long-haul aircraft that we take delivery of this year will not have any first class cabins in them,” said Willie Walsh, BA’s chief executive. He insisted there was no direct link to the recession, but he added: “Longer term we will review the configuration of [all] new aircraft.” BA is also launching a service this year from Heathrow to Las Vegas, a prime destination for high-rollers, with no first class option.


Thanks Ahmad

    Their prices are ridiculous! Even with their price reductions they are still 15% to 20% more expensive then Emirates who are pretty damn expensive and about 40% more expensive then Lufthansa!
