British Airways completed its inaugural Airbus A380 flight from London Heathrow to Washington Dulles airport today, as flight BA217 arrived in Washington early this afternoon.
The launch of A380 services also coincides with the opening of a new “Galleries” lounge for business and first class passengers in Washington.
Washington is the 2nd US city to be served by BA’s A380. San Francisco will be the next US city. BA also flies the A380 to Los Angeles, Hong Kong, Johannesburg. The A380 will also fly to Singapore from the end of this month.
