British Airways is currently running test flights for its Airbus A350-1000 aircraft on London Heathrow – Madrid (flights BA464 / BA465) ahead of its inaugural long-haul flight to Dubai on Monday 2 September 2019.

BA has also this week carried out a full test flight from London Heathrow to Dubai. This involved performing the complete in-flight service for an aircraft full of passengers exactly as it would be run on a flight, apart from the fact that the aircraft never left the ground at Heathrow!

Here are some pictures of the in-flight service from earlier this month. Like previous pictures, these are professionally staged and shot, but do give a bit more of a flavour of the aircraft and the cabins.

As you can see from the pictures below, the in-flight service follows the same format as for other aircraft. In terms of the experiencing the service for yourself, it will take time for crews to get used to the layout of the aircraft so the service may be a little slower than usual to begin with.
