The plan could increase the number of seats on its Boeing 777 aircraft by almost 20%, from 280 to 332.

Each row would have 10 seats rather than the current nine.

It said it would also be upgrading its in-flight entertainment systems with bigger screens.

There are also reports that BA intends to add a dozen extra seats on its short-haul Airbus A320 aircraft, based at Heathrow.

The airline said it expects operating profits for the full year to be up by about 7%, a lower rate than the one it forecast in July.
