British Airways is showing off a brand new business class seat.

The "Club Suite" seats will debut on Airbus A350 in July. The seats will feature their own doors, the ability to convert into beds, increased storage space, and 18.5-inch screens.

"The arrival of our first A350 featuring our new Club Suite is one of the most exciting developments in our $8.6 billion investment programme," British Airways CEO Alex Cruz said in a statement.

"Each new suite has direct aisle access and comes with a personal door - design features which were incorporated as a direct result of the feedback we've had from our customers."

The Club Suite seats will first be available on flights from London to Madrid, before rolling out on long-haul flights beginning in October.

British Airways is expected to have 18 Airbus A350-1000 aircraft in its fleet. Over the next five years, British Airways is expected to take 72 new aircraft including the A350, Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner, along with the Airbus A320/A321neo.
