After receiving significant criticism over the overall product, it does appear British Airways is finally attempting to make changes.

Sean Doyle, British Airways’ Chairman and CEO had this to say on such plans:

“We’re on a journey to a better BA for our people and for our customers, underpinned by a transformation programme that will see us invest £7bn over the next two years to revolutionise our business”.

“[The airline is] going to take delivery of new aircraft, introduce new cabins, elevate our customer care, focus on operational performance and address our environmental impact by reducing our emissions and creating a culture of sustainability.”

“We’re also heavily investing in the development of a new ba.com website and app and are laser-focused on transforming our business and fixing any pain points for our customers.”

Looking ahead, it remains clear that British Airways is looking to reinvigorate itself from a brand perspective.

As well as new flights to Kuala Lumpur & Bangkok, such modernisation is required to remain competitive.

Over the next few years, we will see this modernisation plan come to further fruition.

However, all eyes on whether they can get this done in time, as it is very much of the essence.
