Paolo De Renzis, BA’s head of Middle East, Africa and Central Asia Sales, said: “We launched our 787-9 Dreamliner on the Abu Dhabi route last month and already we are receiving great feedback from our customers.
“The new First generation cabin is particularly popular with our customers who are looking for that bit of extra luxury when flying, which is complemented by our quintessentially British service.”
