The 787-10 is the largest of the Dreamliner types on offer, and with British Airways will offer 282 seats over four classes (First, Business, Premium Economy and Economy).
The delivery comes around six months late, owing to problems at Boeing and also the Covid-19 outbreak. It arried at BA’s London Heathrow base on 28th June.
It was originally planned that the 787-10 would fly the London Heathrow to Atlanta route. Whether this is still the case is not known yet, as the carrier’s schedules are still recovering from the coronavirus groundings.
