It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a British Airways Airbus A318 as its passengers board for the London City to New York JFK via Shannon flight on a winter morning.
British Airways operated two Airbus A318 aircraft during the time the airline operated the London City Airport – New York-JFK route (G-EUNA and G-EUNB). Both aircraft entered the fleet in 2009 (NA joining in August 2009, NB joining in September 2009).
The airline operated these aircraft in an all-business class 32 seat configuration.
Both aircraft served the airline until April 2017, when the BA London City – New York route was reduced to one flight per day.
The aircraft above – G-EUNB – was taken by leasing specialist Titan Airways in July 2017 – maintaining its 32 seat all-business class cabin and offering some variations (such as 30 seat layout with “Club four” layout, adding a table onto the aircraft.
G-EUNA remained with the British Airways fleet to operate the route. The aircraft was parked in March 2020 due to a drop in traffic.
This week, IAG announced that the A318 was due to exit the fleet – bringing this route to an end.
