It’s Sunday again, so it must be time for some more Airplane Art.
This week, we have a British Airways Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner taking off from London Heathrow, off on its next long haul destination.
British Airways operate a fleet of 12 Boeing 787-8 Dreamlienrs. The airline also operates the first stretch Boeing 787-9 and the second stretch Boeing 787-10. As well as these Dreamliners, the airline operates the Airbus A350-1000, Airbus A380, Boeing 777-200ER and Boeing 777-300ER in its long haul fleet.
They are supported by an all-Airbus short-haul fleet, currently based out of Heathrow airport.
This aircraft is the class leader – G-ZBJA – the first Boeing 787-8 that British Airways received. It is configured in a three-class configuration, with Club World in a 2-3-2 configuration, World Traveller Plus in a 2-4-2 layout and World Traveller in the dense 3-3-3 setup, with up to 214 seats installed.
It is 8 years old, with the aircraft currently active, serving destination such as Toronto, Boston, Moscow, Bahrain and Dubai.
These aircraft operate on British Airways long haul routes, for those which could be deemed “thin and long”.
