As we covered here, British Airways is soon to receive its first Boeing 787-10 aircraft. It is the larger but shorter-range version of the Boeing 787-9, which itself is a larger but shorter-range version of the Boeing 787-8.
British Airways already flies the Boeing 787 in the form of the 787-8 (three class) and 787-9 (four class). 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.
Technologically, the Boeing 787-10 shares all the benefits of the other two variants in BA’s fleet, including a lower cabin altitude, larger electronically dimming windows and energy efficiency. The biggest difference, however, is that this will be the first Boeing 787 in BA’s fleet to feature the new business class Club Suite.
The first 787-10 will go onto the Atlanta route.
This was originally timetabled for 25th February. This is no longer the case, and the aircraft is now due to enter service on 10th March.
This means that anyone who was expecting the new Club Suite on their 787-10 will now be stuck with the old Club World seat. There is no change for First Class passengers as the same seat is being used on both aircraft.
