Their website explains the differences in class.

International fist class is a wonderful way to travel...but business is perfectly fine.

BA Business international has the flat beds with privacy screens. Very nice. I am surprised that first is only 4 times coach.

I'm also surprised that 1st is only 4x coach price. Are you sure about that?

If 1st class is only 4x the price of coach then it must be an intra-European flight.

On long-haul flights (eg across the Atlantic), BA usually has 4 classes: 1st, Club World (Business), World Traveller Plus, and World Traveller (Economy). On shorter flights, it has 2 classes (Club Europe (Bus) and Euro Traveller (Economy). Club World and First on long-haul flights usually have seats that recline 180 degrees (ie flat beds). 4x the Economy price for a Bus Class (ie Club World) ticket would be a great price - in Canada, a World Traveller ticket from Canada to London might be Cdn 700-1000, while a Club World ticket would be Cdn 5000-6500.

If you're looking for something that is more comfortable than Economy but less expensive than 1st/Bus class, try World Traveller Plus (38" legroom, more comfortable seat, etc - but the same service as economy). WT+ is usually about double the price of WT. WT+ isn't available on all flights - but usually is available on trans-atlantic flights, UK-Australia, etc.
