Club Suites on LHR-BKK - when ?

I won't travel BA long haul on 8 abreast in business class but my family will on Amex 241 tickets. I would if we could use the newly announced Club Suites.

Any ideas on when they might arrive on the LHR-BKK route ?

Your 241s will have long expired by then.

Anywhere from 5-10 years short answer is no one knows what the refurb plan is.

The CW seat really isnít that bad especially for families and couples

Rather than starting a new thread for every "when will we get Club Suites on my route" per airport, perhaps we could have one master thread where we can just copy and paste "We don't know yet" over and over again.

Considering the inferiority of the birds presently on the BKK route, the route priority obviously means waiting for Club Suites to BKK to be v-e-r-y long.

An option is HKG/SIN and connect on CX?

Edit: Agree on a master thread suggested by @Airprox

Travel separately from your family?

Give it a few years.
Have you tried 8 abreast? If so, great, you know what you want, but I found it a much more comfortable experience than Singapore with their 4 abreast. Yes, really.

I'm also puzzled by the aversion to 8 abreast. Once I'm in my window seat I have no awareness of how many across it is. What is the issue?

It is an easy and lazy criticism which completely ignores meaningful comparisons of the current product such as square footage, presence/absence of foot coffins and direct aisle access.

Why wonít you travel on it? You do realise the seat isnít materially actually any smaller?

unless you MUST have some where to store your specs within easy reach, youre cutting off your nose to spite your face

I found the BA seat to be much more comfortable for lounging in and snoozing. The SQ seat didnít recline far enough for me and I found having to get up when I wanted the seat flat a pain - Iíd just be nodding off and instead of pressing a button and going flat it was get up call the steward/ess have them sort the bed then get in now wide awake.
I value sleep and comfort over food and alcohol.

Ahh I preempted this and created a thread sometime back. But I guess it was a bit early and has been lost in the Ďpit of threadsí

Anyway here it is maybe mods could combine the two.
