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 and Boeing 787-8 which are already in the BA fleet.
The key difference for passengers is that the 787-10 is being delivered with the new Club Suite business class seat. The rest of the Boeing 787 fleet is well down the list of aircraft to be refurbished because they are, of course, still relatively new.
The first 787-10 will go onto the Atlanta route.
This was originally timetabled for 25th February. It then moved to 10th March, as we covered a few weeks ago. This date has also been missed and, according to AirlineRoute, the aircraft is now due to enter service on 14th April.
This means that anyone who was expecting the new Club Suite on their 787-10 to Atlanta will now be stuck with the old Club World seat and a Boeing 787-9. There is no change for First Class passengers as the same seat is being used on the 787-10 and 787-9.
