British Airways is thrilled to announce it will be taking delivery of its first brand new Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner in January of next year. With that, the British flag carrier will operate its first 787-10 route from London to Atlanta beginning in February.
British Airways' Boeing 787-10 aircraft will offer four cabin classes: First, Club World, World Traveler Plus, and World Traveler. The aircraft accommodates a total of just 256 seats, including 8 latest generation First Class suites, 48 Club World suites, 35 World Traveler Plus seats and 165 World Traveler seats.
The Club World suites are British Airways' highly raved, newest Business Class product that feature luxurious flat-bed seats complete with their own suite door for enhanced privacy. World Traveler Plus is its version of Premium Economy while World Traveler is its iteration of Economy Class. All passengers in First Class and Club World will enjoy direct aisle access.
The airline will take delivery of 12 Boeing 787-10 Dreamliners, with half of them arriving in 2020. At this time, British Airways has not revealed which other routes will be flown using its newest Dreamliner aircraft. For those who are wondering, the airline currently has 12 Boeing 787-8 and 16 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner aircraft in its fleet.
The Boeing 787-10 Dreamliner has been built to offer lower cabin pressure which allows for more humidity in the cabin air, a 25% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions compared to the aircraft it replaces, greater fuel efficiency, all while being quieter and more comfortable for customers across all four cabins.
