British Airways has now taken delivery of its first Airbus A350-1000 which is currently operating on the London Heathrow – Madrid route to familiarise crews with the aircraft.
Should you wish to be one of the first passengers to fly on this plane before it begins operating long-haul routes (Dubai & Toronto, followed by Tel Aviv and Bangalore) this autumn, you can do so on either of the following flights: BA464 and BA465 during August.
This new aircraft is the first to feature BA’s brand new Club Suites, which marks a significant improvement on the current Club World product.
There will be no First cabin, however, the Club Suites will feature in a 1-2-1 layout, along with 56 WTP seats and 219 in WT.
The A350-1000 is the quietest of any twin-aisle plane and provides airlines with a 25% reduction in fuel burn.
