BA dates confirmed

British Airways will officially unveil both its Airbus A380 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner to the world at large on the morning of Thursday 4 July at Heathrow. The airline has presently 12 A380s on order and 36 Dreamliners in three sizes, each designed for specific ranges and capacity.

The airline will actually take delivery of a pair of 787s on 26 and 27 June, to be based at Manston, Kent, Britain’s most easterly airport, for training purposes.  Thomson, the first UK operator of the aircraft, chose the most westerly airport, Newquay, for a similar operation.

As things stand the A380 will go into service on the Los Angeles route (BA 269/BA 268) from 15 October and Hong Kong 15 November (BA25/BA26).  BA is reticent regarding the 787 but with a pair of aircraft in service (the A380s arrive a month apart) a high prestige American destination is thought to be likely.

Both aircraft types will also operate unspecified services within Europe over the coming months. www.ba.com
