Some interior photos from BA’s A380 Frankfurt flights

I have run a few posts recently about the delivery of BA’s first A380 super-jumbo.

The first aircraft is currently flying back and forth between London and Frankfurt most days, although the outbound is generally the hugely impractical 6.20am departure.

Head for Points reader Dan took one of the first A380 flights last week and sent me a few pictures.  Note the brown colour of the Club World seats, as opposed to the traditional blue.

Here are a run of pictures – BA’s welcome letter, the plane, World Traveller, World Traveller Plus (upper deck), Club World (upper deck), First, the staircase to the upper deck and a snazzy panorama of central London.

More photos from early travellers on the A380 are available in this Flyertalk thread.

This Flyertalk thread discusses the potential pros and cons of the new brown Club World seat.  This includes the more robust footstool, the higher % of seats with access to side storage, the automatic lowering of the privacy screens, the lack of overhead lights and the uneven flooring.

    In FRA now and just seen her land, shame I am not going to be flying on her. Off to Tunis with LH.
