British Airways will reduce its Dreamliner service to Chengdu to three times weekly this winter. The airline currently flies the B787 from London Heathrow to the Chinese city five times per week on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Sundays. The services arrive at, and then depart, Chengdu the following day. From October 26, outbound flight BA0089 will depart LHR at 1630 on Sundays, Tuesdays and Thursdays and arrive at Chengdu at 1045 the following day. Return service BA0088 will take-off from Chengdu at 1245 on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays and land in London at 1605 the same day. BA first flew to Chengdu last year (see news, September 2013) using a B777-200 three times per week. For summer 2014, the airline deployed its Dreamliner on the route and increased it to five times weekly. Graham Smith
