British Airways, the premier carrier of the United Kingdom launched
the Boeing 787-8 on London Heathrow-Toronto Pearson route on Sep 1. The
inaugural flight arrived in London at 14:55 hours and departed for
Toronto the same evening at 19:20 hours.
The new service is set to offer passengers comfort and decreased
jet-lag. The aircraft, which is fitted with mood lighting, quieter
cabins, lower air pressure, and better air quality, will help the
customers enjoy their long haul flight. The carrier also plans to launch
another Dreamliner on London-New York route beginning this October.
This Dreamliner can accommodate 214 passengers in three segments. There
are 35 seats for business class, 25 seats for premium economy, and 154
seats for economy class passengers. These cabins are made up of high
quality materials, contain comfortable seats, and have additional space
for the baggage. Passengers traveling on business class tickets will
benefit from full-flat seats along with a snack bar that remains open
through the journey.
This plane has large windows to offer the customers a better view of the
outside. The flight contains Thales entertainment system that offers
customers an option to choose from an assortment of movies, TV, music,
and interactive games. Passengers can also use the in-seat chat system
to communicate with fellow passengers seated elsewhere.
British Airways is taking the opportunity to add more Dreamliners to its
fleet. It aims at including 24 more of these Boeing aircrafts in the
next four years. It looks to refurbish these planes with smarter cabins,
elegant lounges, and new technologies for the travelers to enjoy their
journey in peace and ease.
