British Airways: Airbus A380 Interior Pictures

by Continental Club on March 5, 2013

British Airways LogoBritish Airways has revealed some details of the layout and style of its forthcoming Airbus A380 ‘SuperJumbo’ aircraft, due to enter service later this year. The images take the form of a YouTube video.

Those with an eye for detail will probably be most interested in the following time-stamped screen-grabs from the video:

00:15 – The new First Class cabin, which shows a more spacious and rectalinear layout to the seats, compared to the airline’s Boeing 777 and Boeing 747 cabins:

00:32 – Upper Deck Club World inboard seats, which for the first time offer a single central seat and appears to benefit from additional width to the passenger’s right hand side:

The new aircraft is scheduled to enter longhaul service on routes to Los Angeles (15th October 2013) and Hong Kong (15th November 2013), although it’s expected that passengers’ first opportunity to see the latest addition to the fleet will be on shorthaul ‘familiarisation’ flights between London Heathrow and Madrid Barajas airports.

No dates or times have yet been published for these flights, which will provide cabin and flight deck crew with the opportunity to perfect service and operational routines in the shortest possible time. With longhaul service due from October however, familiarisation flights are likely to commence in late August or early September.

Meanwhile, special fares from £494 return to Los Angeles, and from £556 return to Hong Kong have been loaded, for bookings made by 15th March 2013. To check whether a particular flight is scheduled to be A380-operated, click on the flight number shown on the ‘fare matrix’ on the British Airways website. If you’re looking at a connecting itinerary, you will need to click the ‘Show Journey Details +’ button first:

It’s possible to combine an A380 flight in one direction with a B777 or B747 flight in the other (depending on route) and special fares will earn Avios, Tier Points and OnBusiness points based on the passenger’s status.
