British Airways to Deploy Airbus A350-1000 on Tokyo/Haneda to London/Heathrow Route

British Airways is set to deploy the Airbus A350-1000 aircraft on the Tokyo/Haneda to London/Heathrow route.

While the winter schedule operated 10 round trips a week, the upcoming summer schedule, starting from March 31, will see an increase to two flights a day.

The flights in question are BA8/7, which will introduce a new type of business class seat, where all seats have direct aisle access and come equipped with doors. The seating configuration will be 56 seats in business class, 56 seats in premium economy, and 219 seats in economy class, totaling 331 seats.

Flight BA6/5 will operate on a Boeing 787-9 aircraft, featuring 8 first class seats, 42 business class seats, 39 premium economy seats, and 127 economy class seats, making a total of 216 seats.

Neil Chernoff, Director of Networks & Alliances, commented, “We are very pleased to introduce the A350-1000 to our Tokyo route, a city we have been flying to for over 75 years. The A350 and our new business class ‘Club Suite’ will offer a new level of comfort and privacy, and allow our Japanese customers to start their journey in style.”

For the time being, the Osaka/Kansai to London/Heathrow route will be suspended, with the resumption date yet to be determined.

BA8 Tokyo/Haneda (08:50) to London/Heathrow (15:45)
