First to Las Vegas

British Airways is to introduce its First service onto the Heathrow – Las Vegas route from the start of the summer season 2011.

A four-class B747 offering BA’s First cabin will replace the three-class Boeing 777 that has been operating the service since October 2009.  The new aircraft will offer an extra 124 seats in all, including the 14 seats in First.

BA Head of Marketing and Sales Richard Tams said: “Our direct service from Heathrow to Las Vegas has been one of our most successful launches in recent years.  It is one of the star performing routes on the BA network and such a winner with our customers that we are increasing capacity by 18% from next summer and offering that extra touch of luxury."  Virgin Atlantic also offers Las Vegas, from both London and Manchester. www.ba.com
