British Airways international business class (also known as Club World) may be the world’s best business class product if you are travelling with a partner. The forward facing/rear facing seat combos are very convenient to chat with the person seating next to you, like on a comfy tête-à-tête serpentine sofa. When travelling alone and looking for privacy, those plastic privacy dividers between seats won’t be that efficient though. Staring directly at a stranger’s face when the divider is open (as during service, take-off, taxi and landing) can be quite awkward…! All seats are lie-flat and have direct aisle access, so BA’s business cabin is better than the old -fashioned 2-2-2 configuration some major airlines unfortunately still have on their planes. But a lot less private than those with the reverse herringbone configuration, which remains the best of the best in terms of privacy.
