Delhi to be the inaugural route for British Airways’ Boeing 787-9

British Airways has announced that its new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, complete with a new First class cabin, will start flying to Delhi from October 25 2015. With this development, Delhi will become the first route for British Airways globally to benefit from the brand new aircraft and a new First. To commemorate the launch, British Airways is delighted to launch a special fare offer of over 50 per cent off for its customers travelling from New Delhi to London-Heathrow on the new aircraft in World Traveller (economy).
Customers can take advantage of the attractive discount for the sale period July14, 2015 –July 16, 2015 and outbound travel period October 25, 2015–December 31, 2015. The new First cabin on the Boeing 787-9 was developed by Forpeople, London, working together with the airlines’ in-house teams and leading British suppliers, including Prototrim, which developed the high quality soft leather and fabric trim within the suite and London based Pritchard Themis who worked on the suite and cabin lighting. The bespoke lighting in every cabin can be set to reflect the time of day, helping to lull travellers to sleep at night and to wake them in the morning. Customers can also enjoy much larger windows, offering views of the horizon from every seat.
In response to customer demand, the airline is changing the aircraft’s configuration and adding an additional 16 Club World seats. The jumbos’ cabins are also receiving a cabin face-lift and a new Panasonic eX3 next generation in-flight entertainment system. With a total of 42 787s destined to join British Airways, the aircraft is to become the mainstay of the airline’s fleet.
