British Airways first A380 in video

First flight to Los Angeles set for mid October

Last week, British Airways first A380 completed its paint-job in Hamburg, Germany. Now the airline have released a video about the work involved in painting the world’s largest passenger aircraft.

British Airways has 12 A380s on order with the first aircraft set to be delivered some time┬áthis July. For the first few months the aircraft will be used on short-haul flights (routes have not been announced but we expect them to include Paris, Madrid & Frankfurt) so as to fully familiarise British Airways crew, both in the air and on the ground, with the aircraft. The first formal, scheduled flight of the new A380 will then be on 15th October, operating the ‘Red Carpet Route’ between Heathrow & Los Angeles. Following that, in November, the second destination to receive British Airways A380 will be Hong Kong.
