British Airways Super Jumbo Plane

British Airways today took delivery of its new double-decker ‘superjumbo’ which airline bosses say will herald a new era for the nation’s flagship airline. BA says passengers will find its new £270million Airbus A380 bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter and ‘greener’ than the ageing Jumbo jets it replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot. The giant of the skies touched down at Heathrow in London, waved on by cheering BA staff who welcomed its arrival. The plane is the first of a dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways ahead of the model going into service in the autumn.
