Just looking out at BA’s Dreamliner at Heathrow right now.
The British Airways 787 departed Paine Field in Everett, Washington on Wednesday and was welcomed to its Heathrow home by Willie Walsh, chief executive officer of International Airlines Group (IAG), the company that owns British Airways.
“The 787 is a tremendous, innovative aircraft which sets new standards for environmental performance and operating efficiency and I’m sure British Airways’ customers will love it,” said Walsh.
“The 787 will become a mainstay of the British Airways fleet over the next few years.”
British Airways has announced that the airline will operate the 787 from Heathrow to Toronto from September 1 and Heathrow to Newark from October 1 2013.
