British Airways continues to expand its network of Boeing 787 destinations as it takes delivery of further aircraft (some 42 of them are on order in total).

The Boeing 787 is currently flying on selected flights from London Heathrow to Toronto and Newark.

From 24 October 2014, the aircraft will fly to Chennai daily (currently served six weekly by a Boeing 777).

Also joining the list of 787 destinations later this year are Austin (new route from 3 March 2014, initially five weekly), Hyderabad (replaces daily Boeing 777 from 30 March 2014), Chengdu (replaces current thrice weekly Boeing 777 from 5 May 2014 with five weekly 787 flights), Philadelphia (selected daily flights from 5 June 2014, replacing Boeing 767) and Calgary (replaces daily Boeing 767 from 5 July 2014).
