British Airways A350 RoutesBack to Forum

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…22 Mar 2019

@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.24 Mar 2019

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.24 May 2019
