Airbus delivers British Airways’ tenth A380

British Airways has taken delivery of its tenth A380.

The superjumbo, registration LEJ, landed at London Heathrow at 2055 on Tuesday evening.

The airline now has two final A380s on order with Airbus. When they arrive next year, BA will have 12 of the aircraft in its fleet.

  • Any ideas if they will open up additional A380 routes? Im intrigues to see if Dubai is on their radar what with a new Concorde bar scheduled for next month.

  • The Superjumbo is only super in terms of external size. Comfortwise BA’s 380 seating in Business is one of the worst in today’s aviation industry. Shame on BA, it would have been an unique chance to make the 380 the flagship of the fleet.
