Following on from our story yesterday about Tel Aviv becoming the 3rd route to get British Airways’s new A350 and Club Suite seat, it seems that the 4th A350 route will be Bengaluru.

ba.com shows Bengaluru switching from a Boeing 787-8 to an A350 on 1st January.

It continues the pattern of putting Club Suite onto non-prime routes because the A350 fleet does not have First Class.  Virgin Atlantic, on the other hand, will be putting at least its first three new A350 aircraft onto the New York route.
