British Airways operates one of the world’s most unique, exclusive and sought-after routes: New York (JFK) to London City Airport (LCY), on which the airline flies Airbus A318s equipped with only 32 lie-flat business-class seats. As of now, BA operates this route 11 times per week, however starting on October 30, 2016, the frequency will be reduced to just 6 times weekly.

This reduction in service comes after BA announced it would be eliminating some amenities in its Club World business-class product as well as reducing meal service in economy on some transatlantic flights. It hasn’t been said explicitly that this cut in service is a result of Britain’s ‘Brexit’ decision, but it’s reasonable to come to that conclusion, as this route primarily serves finance professionals in both cities.

Have you had the chance to fly BA’s exclusive A318 service between New York and London?
