British Airways has completed retrofit work on 18 of its 747 aircraft, upgrading the superjumbos to replicate the interiors of newer aircraft in the airline’s fleet.

Over the course of 11 months, BA fitted the aircraft interiors with new wiring for the in-flight entertainment system, carpets, seat fabric and LED lights and fittings.

As part of the upgrade, customers in certain sections of the aircraft will now be able to access a universal power socket at every seat, as well as USB sockets to power phones and tablets.

Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “Our engineers have made these amazing aircraft look and feel like new, with enhanced comfort, cutting edge technology and cool, clean design.”
