British Airways takes delivery of first of two 32-seat A318s

British Airways took delivery (01-Sep-2009) of the first of two uniquely configured A318s which will operate the new twice daily non-stop London City-New York JFK service. The aircraft has been specially modified with 'steep approach' capability enabling it to operate to/from London City Airport. Each A318 is configured to carry 32 passengers on Club World seats, which convert to fully flat beds. The Business class-only service has been given the airline's most prestigious flight number, BA001, previously used by Concorde until its retirement in 2003. [more]
