British Airways Gets 'Dreamier' with First Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner
British Airways will take delivery of its first brand new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner in January 2020, with its first route being Atlanta in February next year.
This state-of-the-art, Boeing 787-10 aircraft has a carbon fibre fuselage which allows the pressure to be maintained at a lower level in the cabin.
The internal cabin altitude is the equivalent of 6,000ft, offering better level of humidity, reducing the drying effect of the cabin air, so customers arrive feeling more refreshed. The aircraft is also more fuel efficient and quieter than its predecessors.
The four-class aircraft will feature an exclusive eight seat First cabin, with the airline’s newest First seat which is currently also available on its 787-9 Dreamliner.
The aircraft comes fitted with British Airways’ recently unveiled business class seat Club Suite, in a 48-seat forward-facing Club World cabin. The World Traveller Plus cabin will offer 35 seats and the World Traveller cabin, 165.
Initially created specifically for the Boeing 787-9, the airline’s latest generation First suites have been meticulously designed based on customers’ feedback, the cabin puts comfort at the heart of the experience and makes the very best use of the more intimate space.
The suite includes a 23-inch HD inflight entertainment screen that can be controlled with handset, that is integrated into the seat from which customers can change channels or watch the moving map.
The Club Suite offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and luxurious flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration. It also offers 40% more storage, including a vanity unit and mirror, WiFi, 18.5-inch inflight entertainment screens, HD gate-to-gate programming, and PC/USB power.
British Airways will take delivery of 12 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners with 6 arriving in 2020. It currently has 12 787-8 and 16 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft.
