BA's first 787-10 Dreamliner to join fleet in New Year

British Airways will take delivery of its first brand new 787-10 Dreamliner in January 2020, with Atlanta earmarked as its first route, a month later.

BA has ordered 12 787-10 Dreamliners, with six arriving in 2020.

The 787-10 aircraft has a carbon fibre fuselage, which allows cabin pressure to be maintained at a lower level, offering a better level of humidity, reducing the drying effect of the cabin air, so customers arrive feeling more refreshed.

The aircraft is also more fuel efficient and quieter than its predecessors.

The four-class aircraft will feature an eight-seat First cabin, fitted with the airline's newest First seat, which is currently also available on BA's 787-9 Dreamliner.

The aircraft comes fitted with British Airways' recently unveiled business class seat Club Suite, in a 48-seat forward-facing Club World cabin. The World Traveller Plus cabin will have 35 seats and the World Traveller cabin will have165.

BA chairman and CEO Alex Cruz said: "The delivery of our first 787-10 aircraft marks another significant milestone in our £6.5bn customer investment plan.

"The aircraft delivers a 25% reduction in CO2 emissions compared to the aircraft it replaces, another step towards our commitment to net zero carbon emissions by 2050.  It will also offer greater comfort for our customers, as it features our latest generation seats in all cabins."

Initially created specifically for the Boeing 787-9, the airline's latest generation First suites have been designed based on our customers' feedback.

The suite includes a fixed 23-inch high definition in-flight entertainment screen that can be controlled with a handset, integrated into the seat from which customers can change channels or watch the moving map.

The aircraft's Club Suite offers direct-aisle access, a suite door for greater privacy and flat-bed seats in a 1-2-1 configuration, with 40% more storage, vanity unit and mirror, wi-fi and 18.5-inch in-flight entertainment screens.
