New Boeing 777s for British Airways

BRITISH AIRWAYS has taken delivery of two new Boeing 777s, one of which flew its first revenue service last week.  The second aircraft was delivered to Cardiff before it will enter service.  The airline also withdrew the last Boeing 737-300 in the fleet.  British Airways will take delivery of the first Airbus A318 in August that will be used out of London City Airport and the first Embraer 170 is due to be delivered to CityFlyer in September 2009 again to be based at the City Airport. The airline has re-introduced services to Saudi Arabia after an absence of four years, flying to Jeddah using a Boeing 767 and to Riyadh using a Boeing 777. www.britishairways.com
