The flight from London (LHR) to Nice (NCE) was just shy of two hours and I was in Club Europe (Business) thanks to my trans-Atlantic flight which was booked in Club World. Like many European airlines, business class on BA still had three seats per row, though they block off the middle seat to give you additional space. There’s also a curtain separating business from economy as well as some framed artwork…
Club Europe was empty so I had the entire row as did the three other passengers up front.
Dinner options included a prawn salad or chicken with mashed potatoes, I went with the chicken and it was decent.
Our pilot was “Captain Hook” and the flight attendants took advantage of every opportunity to say his name or the line “Captain Hook and his crew”.
Overall it was a short flight with a decent meal. I wouldn’t pay extra (or use more miles) to sit in Club Europe for such a short flight, but if you’re connecting from an international flight you should have a standard US domestic first class experience.
