British Airways has completed the refurbishment of its Boeing 747s including the installation of its newest cabin interiors.
The airline has been refurbishing 18 B747s with the final aircraft in the programme due to resume service today (August 4) on the route from Heathrow to New York JFK.
Troy Warfield, British Airways’ director of customer experience, said: “The iconic Boeing 747s remain an important part of our fleet, that many of our customers love. We know customers who fly the revamped 747s really appreciate the improved interiors, with their mood lighting, better seating and new state-of-the-art in-flight entertainment system, making their flight just fly by.”
All 18 refreshed aircraft have also been fitted with Panasonic’s eX3 entertainment system, while passengers in premium economy will have access to a universal power socket.
The refurbished ‘jumbos’ are now operating on selected flights to New York JFK, Chicago, Johannesburg, Dubai, Boston, Riyadh, Kuwait, San Francisco, Seattle, Toronto and Washington DC.
