A few days ago, British Airways started to operate the elongated Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner with first class cabins.
One new aircraft would be received from the manufacturing plant and the other four or less aircrafts under the age of 10 years would be leased on the secondary market.
Each first class passenger of Boeing 787-9 receives additional storage space for hand luggage. In addition to standard top shelves, the chair is equipped with individual lockers for personal belongings and extra space for clothes.
Mobile devices can be charged using a socket near the armrest. Internet access is provided by satellite communication while the on-board entertainment system is represented with screens, which are built into the back of seats.
Initially, British Airways will be operating Boeing 787-9 for flights from London to Delhi. Starting from November 5 the new aircraft will be flying to Abu Dhabi and Muscat. Another flight to Kuala Lumpur shall be introduced in December.
