British Airways prepares for Dreamliner launch

By Tanya Filippelli

British Airways’ first Boeing 787 Dreamliner will leave Heathrow on its maiden long-haul flight, the BA093 on September 1st.

Twenty-four 787s will join the British Airways fleet over the next four years as part of the airline’s five billion pound investment in products and services for customers.

British Airways’ customers will also be able to enjoy flying on the world’s largest passenger aircraft from September when the first of twelve A380s the airline has ordered begins flights to Los Angeles.

The 787 offers huge benefits to British Airways’ customers including a whisper-quiet cabin pressurised 2,000 feet lower than other aircraft, allowing customers to arrive at their destination feeling more refreshed and less jet-lagged.

The aircraft’s smooth ride technology also provides extra comfort during any turbulence.

Bespoke mood lighting in every cabin can be set to reflect the time of day, helping to lull travellers to sleep at night and to wake them gently in the morning.

Customers can also enjoy the largest windows of any commercial aircraft, offering views of the horizon from every seat, or relax watching British Airways’ new inflight entertainment system, which features more than 1,600 hours of programming.
