British Airways unveils seating plans for new aircraft. BA will be the first airline in Europe to operate the Dreamliner and A380

With the first of the airline’s new long-haul aircraft only six months away from delivery, British Airways has announced the cabin design and layout for its Boeing 787 and Airbus A380 aircraft.
Two hundred and fourteen customers will enjoy the comforts of the new British Airways Dreamliner and the A380 will be the largest aircraft in the British Airways fleet, with 469 customers.

The 24 Dreamliners and 12 A380s will feature the elegant cabin designs fitted on British Airways’ new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, which have proved hugely popular with customers.
In addition, the new A380 will also have an enhanced version of First.
British Airways is set to be the first European airline to operate both new aircraft types, with its first Dreamliner arriving in May and A380 deliveries starting in July.

“The nine new aircraft we take delivery of in 2013 will feature their latest signature designs to ensure the customer experience maintains the highest standard across their fleet.”
Both new aircraft will also feature the airline’s latest Thales in-flight entertainment system, which offers customers 50 per cent more movies, 200 per cent more TV shows and 200 per cent more audio programmes and music.
British Airways will announce the routes the new aircraft will operate in spring 2013.
