First images of the British Airways Boeing 787-10

British Airways is due to receive its first Boeing 787-10 next month, to add to its existing 787-8 and 787-9 fleet.  These aircraft are being delivered with the new Club Suite seat in Business Class, as well as the same 8-seat First Class cabin found on the 787-9.

These pictures, taken at the Boeing plant in Charleston, have been circulating over Christmas.  I saw them credited to Zulqarnain Butt at one point but I can’t verify that – they are clearly semi-official images of some sort or another.

Once the aircraft has been accepted by British Airways, it will be used on the Atlanta route from February, on BA226/227.

The key difference between the Boeing 787-10 and the other variants is size. The 787-10 is the longest version in terms of physical length, although not flying range, and was first introduced by Singapore Airlines in early 2018.

In total, the 787-10 will have eight First Class seats, 48 Club Suites, 35 World Traveller Plus (premium economy) seats and 165 in World Traveller.  This compares to 56 Club Suites on the A350 with 56 in World Traveller Plus and 219 economy seats.  It will be a very premium-heavy aircraft as you can see from the seating plan here:
