EmPower is a 15 volt DC connector type found on many commercial airlines designed to provide power to travelers' electronic devices. Some airlines offer it only in business class or only in certain types of aircraft or flights. Adapters exist to connect EmPower plugs to cigarette lighter receptacles and most EmPower power adapters come with these. EmPower is a trademark registered initially by Primex Technologies (VA) and assigned to Astronics advanced electronic systems, Inc in Kirkland, Washington, USA. Even though EmPower adapters are rated at 15 volts instead of 12 volts like cigar lighter receptacles, most accessories made for the so-called "12-volt outlets" have enough voltage tolerance to allow for a voltage as high as 15 without step down DC-to-DC converter. Fiji Airways has welcomed the 3rd brand new Airbus A330 aircraft to its fleet, capping off an amazing year of change for Fiji’s national carrier.
Christened ‘Island of Yasawa-i-rara’, after the attractive chain of islands northwest of Nadi, the novel A330 aircraft is adorned with the fresh Fiji Airways branding as well as Makereta Matemosi’s spectacular Fijian masi art. The new A330 is set to not only advance our schedules, but to also boost our effectiveness & the reliability of our services. The development of our long haul fleet is serving to bring the world to Fiji, opening up latest source markets for Fiji tourism along-with helping to boost the Fijian economy. NEWS: British Airways has introduced a check at Heathrow Terminal 5, to ensure that passengers are through security at least 15 minutes (longer for some long haul flights).
British Airways has a vast, complicated, fleet of just about every plane that is flying today. British Airways have two classes of travel for Europe (Euro Traveller and Club Europe), and four for the rest of the world (World Traveller, World Traveller Plus, Club World and First), although many planes now fly in a three class configuration, and do not include a First Class cabin. BA do try hard to try to keep the demarkation between each cabin, although there is some bluring between old First and New Club World, however the food, and amount of space you get in First still keeps this demarkation. All cabins are undergoing an upgrade, but because all the products were introduced at different times, different cabins on the same aircraft may be either new or old versions.
By Contrast, British Airways Old First, is really looking a bit old, tired, and indeed downright ropey, although it is still way above what is on offer in Business: indeed, at launch in 1990 it was truly innovative, but now it really is starting to show its age.
Just as there are two different versions of First, so there are two different versions of Club World, which is the long-haul business class on Boeing 767, 777, 747, and Airbus A318 aircraft.
You'll almost certainly be in what is called New Club World (NGCW, or New Generation Club World, in BA's complex terminology) launched in 2006. There are of course some aircraft that still have the Old Club World, but now it is restricted to the Boeing 767.
Indeed, for a while, BA had three versions of long haul business class, and you may see some mention of First Generation Club World. British Airways World Traveller Plus Meals now include your choice of main course comes from the business class Club World menu: This significantly uprates the BA World Traveller Plus offering to a similar level offered by other airlines in Premium Economy.
Old World Traveller Plus also has a 38 inch seat, and eight abreast seating (6 abreast on the 767), instead of nine or ten abreast on most 777s. There is yet another variant when it comes to Economy - with new and old versions of World Traveller. Old World Traveller comes with very few frills: it is just a basic seat, with a headrest that slides up, and has adjustable wings.
Economy may just be economy - however on BA it is better than on many other airlines, such as Emirates. Around Europe most of the planes, particularly the A320 variants, have a variable ammount of Business (Club Europe) seating, with a moving curtain depending on how many people want to sit up the front. Euro Traveller (ET, or Economy) gives you a normal seat pitch of 31 inches, and that's the same for Club Europe (CE, or Business). British Airways has a fleet of 56 Boeing 747-400s, which operate most of the Asia & Japan routes, plus the big American ones, along with South Africa, the Far East and Australia. Seating over 400, there are three seating configurations, which can be distinguished by the number of Club World (or J-Class) seats, and adding into the mix, some aircraft also have the new variant of Club World and AVOD. On four class planes that have been revamped, World Traveller Plus is being moved to the second cabin, between First and Club World. New Club World (Business Class) extends from row 13 to 14, then (past the galleys) from row 17 to 20 with flat beds in a 2+4 formation, and upstairs with 6 rows of 2+2. The older and most common variant has just 4 rows of World Traveller Plus from 28 to 31, with 28B and 28J the most highly prised - these seats are on their own (a row of one!), in an exit row with lots of legroom - but the window is a long way away.
The latest version of the 747-400s is the one with the latest version of New Generation Club World (known as NGCW). This has the business class section mid-ships, with First in the nose, then WT+, Business class, then WP in the tail.
The highly unusual layout of a four-class plane, with expensive seats behind cheaper economy seats was mainly caused by the existing location of the galleys in the 747s.
British Airways has 45 Boeing 777-200s with a similar range and route capability to the 747-400. There are twenty Boeing 777-200 configured with 14 First Class seats, and 48 Business Class seats.
British Airways fly the Boeing 777-200 14F from London Heathrow to Abuja, Accra, Atlanta, Doha, Boston, Chicago, Dubai, Kuwait, Luanda, Mumbai, Delhi, Houston, Nairobi, Newark, Philadelphia, Riyadh, Tel Aviv, Washington. These aircraft are the 'run of the mill' standard version, by which all of BA's other 777s are judged.
British Airways now has only three initial A-market Boeing 777 models with 17 First Class seats, and 48 Business Class seats. These are really unusual beasts for BA: They have General Electric GE90 engines, a break from the traditional choice of Rolls Royce engines.
There are ten Boeing 777s that are three class with 48 Business Class seats - the standard three class version, with more business class seats. Interactive colour seating chart for BA Boeing 777, with pictures of every seat for the BA 772 48J. British Airways has six brand new Boeing 777-300 ER, which have come straight from the production line. BA has been slowly replacing Boeing 747 jumbo services with the slightly smaller Boeing 777s for some time - they are cheaper to operate, having only two engines. Old First has the standard big armchair seats, with lots of what looks like walnut wood strip on the seats (although, in fact, it is plastic). New First is much better, with subdued lighting, white creamy leather, and small overhead wall lamps.
Club World runs from throughout the middle of the cabin, with the standard 2+4+2 format, that has alternate lines of seats facing each other. Row 26 to row 40 are the normal World Traveller seats - here, avoid row 40 which is right in front of the noisy rear galley. The first row in each cabin is normally held back for Silvers & Golds, but you can select them at online checkin.
The British Airways A380 seating map has a very conventional cabin layout with FIRST right at the front: the first class mini-suites have extra personal and stowage space than on the 747 thanks to the wide main deck. Interactive colour seating chart for British Airways Airbus A380, with pictures of every seat for the BA A380. BA A380 Business Class Club World is spread through the upper and lower deck, with BA's standard Club World seats alternating front and backwards: it is over two decks to allow for a cabin on the lower deck with two side by side seats which are highly popular with couples. Premium Economy, or World Traveller Plus, is on the upper deck, with a very conventional 2-3-2 layout. The BA A380 has the rare delight of Economy on the upper deck, giving 2+4+2 seats, and these are the best seats for couples, however the rear of the section faces the toilet doors, with light and noise issues.
Thin but with a twin isle, it feels a bit odd, particularly the two that are in European formation, with just two cabins.
Here there is a separate Club cabin at the front, with Club Europe seats that have a pitch of 34 inches, and are in a 2+2+2 layout. The European 767s alternate between Athens, Moscow, plus rather oddly, Prague and Dusseldorf.


The other 767s in World formation seem a bit more modern (particularly the 767 which was based in Manchester for the JFK flights which became the first 767 with AV on demand - this aircraft is now at Gatwick) with flat beds in Club World configured in 2+2+2.
When you first get on board, you may be forgiven for thinking that they are rather elderly planes, and the rather 1980s feel.
Beware of these - they are flown mainly on short haul European and UK domestic routes, and a lot of seats have a pitch of just 30 inches. Nice, pleasant quiet planes, the A320s are a joy (there are 13 in the fleet), while the A319 seats 129 (of which BA has 25), but is a short stubby plane, and bounces around a bit.
Very pretty planes, these are great for taking photographs out of the window, because the wings will never get in the way. These small overwing prop planes in the fleet give a great ground view, but its very noisy, scary on touchdown (after all - you can see the wheels hitting the tarmac) and are very weight sensitive. Note that the overhead lockers on this plane are only 4 inches high, so your "carry on" case won't.

That South Africa’s national airline is taking cockpit demographics seriously can be seen from its final selection of 40 new pupil pilots – all from historically disadvantaged population groups – chosen from more than 5 200 hopefuls. SAA’s cadet pilot development programme is the airline’s effort to transform not only its own but also South Africa’s flight deck community, which is nowhere close to reflecting national demographics, he added. The group of 40 started their training at 43 Air School in Port Alfred on Monday with 14 months of theoretical and practical training en route to their “frozen” Airline Transport Pilot Licence (ATPL). The Eastern Cape flying school has been operating for 71 years and is widely acknowledged as a top training institution for pilots be they private, military, general or civil. The 40 who made it to final selection from a shortlist of 271 are African (10 male and four female), Coloured (nine male and one female), Indian (seven male and two female) and seven white females. While the 40 have made it this far there is no guarantee those who eventually qualify will find work in either the left or right hand front seats of SAA’s cargo or passenger aircraft.
In August last year, SAA’s pilot recruitment came under scrutiny after it was reported that white applicants were being rejected across the board when applying for the cadet programme online. SAA spokesman Kabelo Ledwaba told Beeld at the time that the cadet programme was being advertised online as an initiative to bring pilot demographics in line with the country's broader demographics.
Shortly afterwards, SAA’s website was changed so that applications from white men would not be automatically rejected. The SEARCHMASTER meets all surveillance mission types and can be installed on all platform types.

The system is limited to 75 watts.[1] The use of a special connector is to prevent laptops charging at altitude and ensure that only approved adapters can be used. Travelers can buy EmPower adapters, frequently from duty-free shops at airports, that allow them to run laptops and other electronic equipment without using battery power.
Subsequently, the trademark has been expanded to include not just the proprietary DC 15 V connector but also the AC 120 V 60 Hz in-seat power (and video entertainment) systems.

The last minute flights to Fiji are already there for the travelers & passengers of the world. It is permitting us to introduce a third Fiji to Hong Kong service from December, & will empower more direct flights to our key markets, and also many more connections with partner airlines around the world.
The cheap fares are the best option for the tourists of the world to be here in the best part of the world. Even if you could quite easily get to your plane, you will not be permitted through security unless you are there with time to spare. There is much more of a blur between old World Traveller Plus and Economy: here, the difference is all about the seat width. You'll be pretty much sure of getting Next Gen Club World rather than just New Club World, but even on planes with the new WTP, there may be still the old First cabin: those at the front may actually get a much more outdated product. There is a fake walnut effect around the seat, which reclines to 78 inch bed, with an ottoman opposite you for buddy dining. Launched in 2000, CW or Business Class (on, in the industry, when it was launched it was called NCW or New Club World. These had cradle seats, and while very good, were dated by the time of New Club World in 2000. Both feel much more comfortable than plain economy, however a British Airways premium economy review isn't as favourable as on some other airlines like Qantas and Air New Zealand, which have leap-froged past BA in this class. The new BA WTP is on all the BA Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, and slowly being retrofitted to the rest of the fleet. There is laptop power, but with a special EmPower socket, and either a 9" AVOD screen, or a 6" looped screen. Furthermore, you only get your choice after the rest of club, so pickings may be rather short. It is notable for the large 9 inch widescreen seatback TV, with the remote underneath it: as a result the tray table is a small bi-fold design.
These airlines cram in 10 abreast on the Boeing 777, with a notoriously narrow seat, however BA stick to a 3-3-3 layout on the 777, giving a much wider and more comfortable ride, although it is 3-4-3 on the 747, and 2-3-2 on the 767. The seats are also pretty much the same, except for Club seats on the left in A320, where the three seats are squeezed into two larger ones, thanks to a moveable armrest. The only exception is on the few remaining 767s, which do have special business class seats. These are the jumbos with a big bubble on top behind the cockpit - all of the 747-200 classics (with a small bubble) were scrapped at the end of 2001. This causes immense problems with WT+ passengers disembarking at some locations before Business Class passengers, and they also tend to raid the Club World Larder. Seats 1A & 1K are highly prized, thanks to the almost forward facing view through the front windows, and they are very private, but if VIPs are expected onboard, BA tend to throw normal passengers out of the these seats - so booking these seats via MMB doesn't always work. There is a small plastic table here which belongs to "your" seat, however passengers in row 29 are wont to nab it. The one known as the high J planes with 70 Club World seats, with a small mini-cabin of two rows of Club from row 13 to 14, then (past the galleys & the stairs) from row 17 to 20 with flat beds in a 2+4 formation, and upstairs with 6 rows of 2+2.
It can cause chaos as disembarking, with economy passengers holding up those in the business class seat, and the WT+ passengers also tend to raid the larder in Business class.
Principally they are used for Middle East and Gulf destinations, as well as some smaller tourist destinations, like Barbados, and a few of the smaller American locations, such as Philadelphia & Chicago.
It has the latest AVOD in-flight entertainment, next generation Club World seats, and all aircraft have the new First Class seats. When delivered they were designed for the 'bucket and spade' routes in the Caribbean, and hence had a 10 abreast 3-4-3 configuration in economy: they are now in BA's normal 9 abreast layout, which is much more comfortable than the 10 abreast cabin used by Emirates etc. These are typical affluent 'bucket and spade' route planes, flying from London Gatwick: Antigua,San Juan, St Kitts & Nevis, Tobago, Male, Orlando and Tampa. They are unusual in having an extra row of Club World, six rows of World Traveller Plus, from row 21 to 26, and a small mini-cabin of economy from row 28 to 35.
On the four class planes, there are generally 4 rows of First, with many passengers preferring row 2 - row 1 is right by the bathroom. There are huge privacy screens to separate the middle seats: it isn't however a suite like Emirates would offer, but it does the job with more class. There is only one row of emergency exit seats, in row 26, and these are highly desired - only the middle seats here are bassinet seats. On the upper deck, the British Airways A380 seating map has Club in a 2-3-2 layout allowing for a very private middle seat with an extra side section, doubling up as a desk with storage under, however 3 of these are reserved for crew rest seats. This is mainly due to BA having to tack on an extra rosta to maximise crew hours - plus, loads to DUS are often very heavy.


Oddly these planes have a forward facing window seat in Club World, and as such, 1A is highly sought after and offers a little extra legroom to boot. Infact the first arrived at BA in 1990, and the rest are about 10 years old, so they aren't that bad. However BA are the only major 767 operator in the world with Rolls Royce engines (it means that the engines are the same as on the 747 fleet), and that means their resale value is very low. The A320 seats 150, feels much more comfortable, and is often found on flights to middle Europe.
This row is normally held back for Silvers & Golds, but you can select them at online checkin. Uniquely for a modern airliner, the wings are strapped to the top of the fuselage, and have four very tiny engines underneath. Flags in the recreation area at 43 bear testimony to this running from A (Australia) all the way through to Z (Zimbabwe). American Airlines uses EmPower 120 V AC outlets (standard 2 prong plus ground) on their newer 737s. Modern laptop batteries, however include a temperature sensor that should compensate for the reduced cooling at altitude. With the enhancement, the more competitive services are expected to come for the passengers. Also BA have changed boarding times: British Airways are now imposing a T-10 rule for boarding on all flights from LHR Terminals 3 and 5.
Other airlines, such as Air New Zealand, have moved their Premium Economy product much further forward, however BA like to keep the firm mark up between the cheap seats and business. You sit at a slight angle to the direction of flight, and it is very hard to see out of the window. It is still laid out in alternate rows of forward and backward facing seats, but it does seem more comfortable, with armrests that side into the body of the seat, a sliding glass screen between seats, and a Z-frame bed that means you can lie semi-upright. Hence, some crew will still refer to this as the new CW seat, even though it is the old one) gets a seat which is BA's much touted (nay infamous) flat bed - it 73 inches long, and really does go completely flat, so you can get a decent night's sleep. Drinks are free, but from the economy selection (but you do get a glass glass rather than a plastic one) and you do get an uprated amenity kit (with a pen) and at some airports a special check in lane. If you sit in the First cabin you also get the delight of a "loo with a view" - the toilets are large, with a couple of windows. 62K is the best seat going - a window emergency exit, and in the middle of the cabin so furthest away from the bathrooms and the galley, so therefore the quietest, and you can get out without climbing over anyone.
These planes were originally known as the "low J" variant (with few business class seats) and have AVOD in all classes. Whether you get the new seat is something of a lottery on the 14Fs, however if there is no wardrobe at the front of the cabin, this is generally a good sign of New First. Increasingly they are also to be found on some JFK flights, and even serviced Australia for a while, initially to Melbourne, and then when that route was chopped, on one of the rotations to Sydney.
They are used from London Heathrow to Singapore, Sydney, Shanghai, and Tokyo Haneda, although they do also appear on other routes, mainly to the US, from time to time. There are only three left in the fleet, with BA trying hard to divest itself of these aircraft: others from the initial order have been sold to Varig, or broken up for parts, despite only having only eight years in service. Plus from London Heathrow Bangalore, Buenos Aires, Cape Town, Chennai, Denver, Montreal, Rio de Janeiro & San Diego, although they do also appear on other routes, mainly to the US, from time to time. BA wanted to replace the 747 with the A380 and the 787, but with huge delays, it eventrally coughed up for six Boeing 777-300ER aircraft.
This small mini-cabin is highly recommended: it is slightly quieter than the large cabin at the rear.
You get an ottoman to put your legs on, and you can use this to have someone join you while you dine. It is in a 2+4+2 format, and between 3 and 5 rows of WTP, depending on the aircraft (as above).
You do however have to sit facing a member of the cabin crew, which some passengers find annoying. Occasionally if there are a lot of bookings in economy, a curtain appears in the Club Europe cabin, and it is divided, with the middle seats split into 3. 4K is also very good, though some find the window seats a little claustrophobic owing to the smaller 767 cabin. BA have also spent a fortune refurnishing these planes, and most are now operating as what staff members call "Dusked" versions.
Used where ever there's a short runway, seat pitch for everyone is 32 inches, and they seat 110. The rest are white, and 91% of them are men." Ledwaba said the airline would appoint male, white pilots when there were vacant posts for which applicants of other races could not be found. Passengers must be on board the plane at 10 minutes before the published takeoff time, or they will be refused access to the plane. Behind the seat is a personal wardrobe, a writing desk that can be converted into a dining table, a 15" widescreen TV, mood lighting and electronic blinds. Some people object to flying backwards, but it is actually quite comfortable, however you do have to look your neighbour in the face.
All long hall seats on British Airways now come with seatback TV, with either a 6 inch screen with films on a loop, or 9 inches and AVOD.
From rows 33 to 53 are World Traveller, with row 33 a bulkhead at the start of the small mini cabin, and row 39 & 40 bulkheads for the main cabin.
One sure way of telling is to look at the plane as you board: if there are two blocked portholes in the front cabin, you have new first. Row 21 seats are great, with a fold out video screen - but alas are the "screamer" or bassinet seats.
Row 27 is the emergency exit, and while the seats here are a bit thinner (because of the table in the armrest) the extra legroom is a definate plus, along with having a proper window, although you do get the crew sitting directly opposite you. Economy Passengers holding status in the Executive Club are normally moved to this special economy and bit cabin when this happens.
There is World Traveller Plus seating, configured 2+2+2, and is much more spacious than the WT+ cabins in the 747s. Alas, only about half the fleet has the new seat, and you may be stuck with the old product.
Alas, for inflight entertainment there is only a 4 inch pull up video monitor: many of the oldest seats still have a video tape slot, before DVDs, then AVOD, and now the iPod IFE (short term stop-gap) entertainment systems were introduced and then abandoned. All NGCW seats feature 'raid the larder': this is a small snackbar with salads, sandwiches, and chocolates. If you ask for the bulkhead seats in WTP you get even more legroom, and a video screen which folds out from your seat. Other passengers vote for 64K on day flights, but in 64A you will keep on being disturbed by people "raiding the larder", and rustling crisp packets. They are swapped in with the B777-200s when there is a lot of demand for routes, and as such can find themselves used to Chicago, Washington, Toronto, Riyadh, Delhi, Mumbai and Dubai. On all old-First on the 777, BA hand out an iPad with the seat, that contains some films and TV programmes: it's because the monitor at this seat is tiny. If you sit here, there is a danger you could be sitting next to someone with a baby, and worse, over the other side of the thin diving wall, there are more baby seats: for a very good reason, crew call this area the wailing wall. It does have a major perk over its twin on Qantas: this larder also has wine, beer and soft drinks you can pour.
Many passengers mistake this for the old Business class seat - it is not, but it comes close, and for those on a budget makes extreme long haul (such as to Australia) much more bearable. A minute 4 inch screen: on the early models there was even a small tape player in the armrest, so you could play tapes on demand. True, the seat doesn't fold into a bed, but for the money it can actually be quite a bargain.
