    From flights I have booked, or am in the process of booking:

    DXB (I’m booked in November) A350
    GIG (I’m booking in February) 787

    Rgds.
    AOTG.

    DXB would be a risky bet since one of the two runways will be closed for a few weeks. Plus RF wrote it will me North America. East Cost is highly probable, as further would mean a return trip over 24 hours. And I would not exclude T3 flights as swaps are possible with the schedule change in 9 days… That said, not enough information to bet…

    I missed something here. Aren’t receiving them before October?

    @Swissdriver No you’ve missed nothing. Per the 2 links in my previous reply to another first entry into service is August when they will be operating short haul, most likely MAD, for a couple of months before going into long haul service as above.

    Dubai (DXB) Southern Runway Rehabilitation (closure) is scheduled for 15th April to 30th May.
    During this time the BA106/107 will use A380 equipment and the BA108/109 will use B772 as per the current schedule.

    I thought that i read Abu Dhabi was one of the first routes for the A350 (after Madrid training flights)

    Roll-out was today at Toulouse.

    Initial long-haul routes will be Dubai and Toronto in October.

    How will we know when these flights to Madrid are ready to book?

    Do we know approx. what month these will take place?

    Thanks!

    No news yet

    My guess is they will take over the BA460 currently operated by a 777 sometime in September. But that is a total guess – maybe they keep the 777 and swap other A320 services for an A350 service.

    Checked in the GDS and the 350 isn’t showing at all, so as Tim says, guesswork.

    I do have a couple of ‘informers’ in BA and will ask the question.
