TORONTO, Sept. 1, 2013 /CNW/ - The following video is available by CNW's Video On-Demand web download:
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 (economy).
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.
