BA links London & Washington with Super Jumbo

First and Club World (business class) customers heading to Heathrow on British Airways’ newly launched A380 service from Washington have the added bonus of enjoying the airline’s re-launched lounge at the US Capital’s airport.

The upgraded lounge can now host 200 customers, thanks to 10,000ft² of space. It features intimate bar areas, business facilities, fine dining, shower suites and a private VIP area.

For customers travelling in First Class, a private dining room offering comfort and privacy is available, while those travelling in Club World can enjoy their pre-flight dining with views over the runway.

For people wanting a lighter snack, a new deli area offers a range of options along with Twinings tea and  freshly ground Fairtrade coffee. A stylish new bar area offers a range of complimentary wines and spirits.

The Washington lounge is the latest in a line to be re-launched, following Newark, Cape Town, Edinburgh and Belfast City.
The flight is the first and only non-stop A380 service between the two nations’ capitals and BA will initially operate five A380 services a week from Washington Dulles. This will increase to a daily service from the end of October, in conjunction with the daily BA292, operated by a Boeing 747 and the thrice weekly BA264, operated by a Boeing 777.  www.ba.com
