VK: I shall be 787’ing 🙂 There are more of the birds coming than the A380’s and they have a huge amount of versatility in terms or routes it can fly so I opted for that one.
Hey tiggerbrown. Sorry the Stockholm bit got a bit buried in my post. BA have announced that the european route the 787 will fly will be LHR-ARN. They haven’t specified a particular rotation, but I would imagine they would follow the A380-FRA example and utilise the current 767 slots which has a larger turnaround time and similar seat capacity. Looking at BA.com that would be the daily BA780/781.
Unfortunately BA has released no start date for the LHR-ARN. Rumor has it in fact that they will not announce dates or frequencies that the 787 will fly on the short haul training flights. Which is a little disappointing.
On the 4th of July the first BA A380 will touch down and then taxi to park next to a B787 where a group of employees, VIP’s and the media will welcome them both to the fleet. Should be an impressive sight!
