As we covered last year, British Airways announced that the London City Airport to New York JFK service was not going to return post coronavirus.
There were originally two adapted A318 aircraft serving this route, covering the two daily flights.
When the service was reduced to one flight per day, one aircraft was taken over by Titan Airways for charter work.
The final aircraft has now been sent to Twente Airport in the Netherlands. It will be broken up and used for spare parts, many of which can be used on other short-haul Airbus types.
Here is my review from my last A318 BA1 New York trip in 2019 which did leave me unenthusiastic.
