"Over the last two years, I have worked closely with Governor Haslam and more than 50 city, state, business, and community leaders to make Nashville International Airport truly live up to its name by bringing a nonstop transatlantic flight between London and Music City," said Nashville Mayor Megan Barry. "With Nashville as the leading economic engine in the state, this new service will be a difference maker as the city's momentum continues on all fronts - business development and tourism."British Airways' state-of-the-at Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner aircraft accommodates 214 customers across three cabins, with 154 seats in World Traveller (economy), 25 seats in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and 35 seats in Club World (business). All customers will be able to enjoy free meals, beverages, individual widescreen TV screens with complimentary on-demand entertainment, and a free checked bag. Designed to enhance customer wellbeing, the new fuel-efficient aircraft operates with a lower pressurization, reducing the effects of jet lag for customers. A joint business agreement between American, British Airways, Iberia and Finnair allows members of the AAdvantage, Executive Club and Plus programs to earn and redeem points or miles on codeshare flights across the airlines. Customers also get access to great prices across all four airlines with the ability to mix and match flights to get the best deals and enjoy smoother connections for onward flights through coordinated schedules.
