British Airways announced they will be fitting non-reclining seats in economy on 35 planes set to fly short distances.
A British Airways spokesman said: “As well as new long-haul aircraft, we have 35 brand new short-haul planes arriving over the next five years.
“We are installing at-seat power throughout the aircraft and will soon offer on-board Wi-Fi.
“The new aircraft will have brand new seats set to a gentle recline to ensure everyone in the cabin enjoys a comfortable journey.
“These changes will also allow us to offer more low fares to customers.”
The seats will be installed on its new fleet of 35 Airbus A320neos and A321neos, which will be phased in over the next five years.
