British Airways is introducing First class on its popular Las Vegas route next summer
Wednesday 10, November 2010
The direct daily flight from Terminal 5 at Heathrow was launched a year ago and operated by a three-class Boeing 777. A four-class B747 offering BA’s First cabin will replace it.
By moving to a B747, BA will be sending an additional 124 seats on every round trip. Each flight will now have 14 seats in First.
Richard Tams, British Airways head of marketing and sales, said: “Our direct service from London Heathrow to Las Vegas has been one of our most successful launches in recent years.
“It is one of the star performing routes on the BA network and such a winner with our customers that we are increasing capacity by 18 per cent from next summer and offering that extra touch of luxury.”
Prices to Las Vegas start from £523 in World Traveller, £941 in World Traveller Plus, £2528 in Club World and £7108.00 in First. All prices are return and include taxes, fees and charges.
First will be available on Las Vegas flights from June 1, 2011.
The new First cabin is currently being rolled out across the longhaul fleet. The fleet will be fully embodied with the cabin by the beginning of 2012.
The B777 aircraft has 275 seats and the B747 aircraft has 337 seats.
More and more travellers think that researching and planning a European city break is half the fun and they're not interested in pre-arranged trips or escorted tours. Self-guided tours offer a lot of advantages but require some guidance and good resources.
With the recent wild fires, disrupting flights and increasing air pollution, environmental quality is a growing factor in attracting tourists.
