British Airways’ new Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner, complete with a new First class cabin, will start flying to Delhi from 25 October 2015.

The 787-9, the first of which is due to arrive with British Airways in September, is six metres longer that its 787-8 predecessor (of which the airline has eight), so as well as offering World Traveller (economy), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and Club World (business class), there’s also room for a new First class cabin – a first for the airline’s 787 fleet.

The First cabin has just eight seats in comparison to the 14 seats available on other British Airways long-haul aircraft, giving even more exclusivity and privacy to customers.

Created specifically for the Boeing 787-9, the new First suites have been designed based on feedback from First customers and now includes four new storage areas.

Great attention to detail has also been paid to how the customer uses their suite, with each function being controlled by simple, intuitive touch.The seat and inflight entertainment console has been updated with a new handset, much like a smartphone, integrated into the seat from which travellers can control their inflight entertainment.

The new First cabin on the Boeing 787-9 was developed by Forpeople, London, working together with the airlines’ in-house teams and leading British suppliers, including Prototrim, which developed the high-quality soft leather and fabric trim within the suite and London based Pritchard Themis who worked on the suite and cabin lighting.
