British Airways offers a pretty mediocre intra-European business class. But they haven’t lost the loyalty of the British royals.
Kate Middleton, the the Duchess of Cambridge, visited the Netherlands on her first solo international trip as a member of the British royal family. She returned home on British Airways.
Middleton Maven tweeted,
Her father was a flight dispatcher and her mother a flight attendant for British Airways, so she knows how important it is to get the bulkhead when flying British Airways Club Europe.

It’s the only place on the plane with acceptable legroom. British Airways intra-European business class doesn’t offer more legroom than coach in any other row.

Her husband Prince William opts for the bulkhead when flying British Airways as well. Of course, he’s used to slumming it, last year he flew Ryanair. Two years ago he flew American Airlines coach Memphis – Dallas and he flew the US Airways Shuttle in first.
