The first Boeing 787-10 in the British Airways fleet landed at Heathrow yesterday, on a flight from the Boeing plant in Charleston.
The aircraft was delivered five months late after various certification delays. We covered the British Airways Boeing 787-10 saga in this article.
The 2nd aircraft seems to have been less troublesome and is due to arrive later this week. In the short term, they are rostered on the Atlanta and Seattle routes but this could change.
It is worth keeping an eye out for it in the schedules because you are guaranteed to get the new Club Suite business class seat if you fly on one. It also has an 8-seat First Class cabin, which in some ways is less private than Club Suite.
If British Airways releases some official photographs we will run them in the next few days.
