British Airways Announces Los Angeles To London As First A380 Route

NEW YORK, March 5, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- British Airways' first Airbus A380 will fly from Los Angeles to London Heathrow, with tickets going on sale today.

Los Angeles will be the inaugural destination for the first A380 to be operated by a UK airline. The double-decker superjumbo is due to be delivered to British Airways in July and seats are now on sale for flights from Oct. 15, 2013.

In celebration, the airline is launching an offer from Los Angeles. Fares in World Traveller economy start at $830 roundtrip. World Traveller Plus, the airline's premium economy, begins from $1380 roundtrip.

Continuing the celebrations, Club World business class fares begin from $3,800 roundtrip. All fares include taxes, fees and carrier charges.

A380 enthusiasts eager to be on the very first commercial services should note that dates for these will be announced once plans for training flights are completed.

The second A380 route will be to Hong Kong and customers can book flights now for travel from November 15, 2013.

The airline's website, www.ba.com, will feature information on the new aircraft, including computer generated imagery (CGI), and a short film will be available via youtube to give customers a feel for the aircraft. Customers can book via ba.com, by calling 800 AIRWAYS or by visiting a local travel agent.

The A380 will be the largest aircraft in the British Airways fleet, accommodating 469 customers across four cabins. Customers in First will be seated at the front of the main deck. The cabin will offer 14 seats and is evolved from the current First class. Club World (business class) customers can choose from 44 seats on the main deck, or 53 seats on the upper deck. These upper deck seats will feature a new 2:3:2 configuration across the cabin. The 55 World Traveller Plus (premier economy) seats will be located on the upper deck while World Traveller (economy) customers can choose seats on both the main and upper deck. Both cabins will feature the airline's current design, which is now flying on the new B777-300ER fleet.
