The carrier’s Tel Aviv route will increase from 14 to 20 services per week, with the new A321s serving flights from the new year.

A spokesperson for BA confirmed that while the A321 business class cabin will offer fully-flat seating and will be marketed as "Club World", the product will differ to that familiar to long-haul BA passengers.

The seat will be configured 1-2 in the first row, then 2-1 behind, and alternating in this way to the back of the cabin.

Similar to seats launched by Finnair in 2009, the two seats positioned either side of the single seat in front of it will have their leg space under the side tables either side of the single seat (see this report and image on the Finnair seat for a better idea).

No images are available of the new seat as yet, but BA has given Business Traveller the following information on the new economy and business class seats which will appear on the A321 aircraft:

Business class: 23 Thompson Aero Seating 78” lie-flat beds with 45” seat pitch – a revolutionary new seat offering greater personal space, setting standards for comfort
Economy Class seat: 131 Geven “Piuma” economy seats with 31” pitch – state of the art design and new stylish appearance
IFE: Thales i5000 AVOD system to all seats

One wonders if BA will reconsider this decision due to market monopolization now LH is out.

i can't imagine that had such a big market for F b/w lhr and tlv.   the 321's will still have a real business which is a big step over lh, and they'll get to operate a 3rd flight a day.
