British Airways is debuted its new Boeing 787 Dreamliner aircraft with an
inaugural round-trip flight between London and Toronto on September 1. The
flight touched-down at Lester B Pearson Airport at approximately 2:55 pm local
time and departed the same evening around 7:20 pm, marking the first long-haul
service for the airline's new fleet.
Canadians will now be able to enjoy new levels of comfort and reduced jet-lag
on their trips to Europe thanks to improvements in air quality, mood lighting,
quieter cabins and lower air pressure. The Dreamliner will fly exclusively
between Toronto and London in September and beginning in October, between New
York and London.
The new aircraft accommodates 214 passengers, 35 in Club World (business
class), 25 in World Traveler Plus (premium economy) and 154 in World Traveler
The Boeing 787-8 is a mid-size, dual aisle, twin engine jet manufactured by
Boeing, the American aerospace company. The aircraft uses 20% less fuel than
similar sized commercial jets. Composite materials make up 50 percent of the
primary structure, including the fuselage and wing.
