Improvements to F / CCR

Hi all,
Just back from AUH in F. Speaking to cabin crew, they weren't sure if any of the initial improvements being made to CW and rolled out in 2018 will apply to F. Anyone know more on this? It would seem strange to have those little beakers in F while those in CW have their crystal!

If they do replicate some of these CW improvements to any of the 787 flights you might just have a F class that can compete a little with others; particularly on the middle eastern routes

Also, I note CCR doesn't seem to have had its refresh - unless it has and I hadn't noticed

Welcome to FT!

I think it would be odd to have the same soft product elements in First as in Club World; I think it's highly unlikely to happen.

The T5 CCR was rumoured to be receiving new furniture over this weekend.

Thanks for getting back so quickly. Pleased to hear about the furniture going into CCR! Shame there won't be any corresponding improvement to F - lucky I normally fly CW!

There might be improvements (I think BA have got to do something), but none have been announced yet.

one of the CCR staff was telling me last week that the refresh was due to take place.

it also seems that they have / are washing the curtains of the board room. they were certainly missing the last 2 times I was working in there.

There’s was some new seating in the CCR yesterday - chairs seemed smaller than the ones replaced. I wouldn’t get too excited over these changes.

Grateful for any reports on this CCR new sofa frenzy and of any (unlikely) changes to F where CW has been upgraded. Thank you

Without a fundemental re think of both J and F any tinkering with the products, on the ground or in the air, is nothing more than lipstick on a pig.

The new CCR furniture started to appear today - it's next to the bar if you want to check it out.


Let's just say you shouldn't get too excited (unless you used to travel BCal)
