British Airways resumed flights into Kuala Lumpur on 29th May (our story here) and now they’re planning to upgrade their current daily777-200ER flight to the Boeing 787-9 with effect from 5th December 2015, bringing the date forward by just over two weeks.

Other current destinations on which British Airways will be flying the new aircraft include

  • the 5 times a week flights between London Heathrow and Delhi effective 25th October, with one daily service effective 27th March 2016
  • the daily flights London Heathrow – Abu Dhabi – Muscat from 26th October and 
  • daily flights between London Heathrow and Austin from 1st February 2016

The Dreamliner was designed to be quieter and more fuel efficient, with all electrical flight systems. The 787-9 shares a common type rating with the Boeing 777, allowing pilots to fly both aircraft. The stretched 787-9 variant which will be used by British Airways on these routes is 6.1 m longer than the 787-8 and can fly 830 km farther than its predecessor.
