British Airways Takes delivery of A380 - the FIrst Flying Double Decker

British Airways has taken delivery of new £270m Airbus A380 - the first flying Double Decker of the world on Thursday, today. The vast Double Decker superjumbo planes can theoretically carry up to 800 people - provided all the passengers are squeezed into narrow economy-sized seats

Although the Boeing 747 Jumbo jet has an upper deck, but it is not all over its body, while the Airbus A380 has a complete upper deck just like Double Decker of London.

BA says passengers will find its new £270 million Airbus A380 bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter and ‘greener’ than the ageing Jumbo jets it replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot.

It is also 16 per cent more fuel efficient per seat than a Jumbo Jet, and claims to be the ‘greenest’ passenger jet in the sky.

The new arrival is the first of a dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways ahead of the plane going into service in the autumn.

British Airways is also the first airline in Europe to operate both the Airbus A380 and the rival Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the first two of which landed at Heathrow last week.

The airline has announced that the first  ong-haul return flight from London Heathrow to Los Angeles on September 24 is priced from £621 in economy to £2,550 in business and  £3,799 in First, while the first Hong Kong return on October 22 is priced from £688 in economy to £2,499 in business and £5,800 in First.
