British Airways today took delivery of its new double-decker ‘superjumbo’ which
airline bosses say will herald a new era for the nation’s flagship airline.
BA says passengers will find its new £270million Airbus A380 bigger, more
spacious, more comfortable, quieter and ‘greener’ than the ageing Jumbo jets it
replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot.
This morning the giant of the skies touched down at Heathrow in London, waved on
by cheering BA staff who welcomed its arrival.
The plane is the first of a dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways ahead of
the model going into service in the autumn.
