In flight, privacy and space are precious commodities, and British Airways offers both with its private cabins. Inside the cabins, seats recline flat to become comfortable, 6-foot-6-inch beds. For those traveling in pairs, double cabins are available with ample room to stretch out and relax. Sometimes, however, the need for speed overrides the desire for privacy and space. British Airways, with its renowned flights to and from London, is the only remaining carrier to offer Concorde service. But interested passengers have to hurry: The airline announced plans to ground the Concorde by the end of October.
