The national airline has this week launched a five-times weekly superjumbo operation to the northern California city (see news, September 2014).
From October 25, BA will fly the A380 to SFO four-times weekly, with the other three days operated by a B747-400. There will also be an additional second daily service operated by a B747-400, reports airlineroute.net.
