According to Keith Williams, Chief Executive, British Airway’, this will be a very special premier. The A380 is a great aircraft which has been developed with huge amounts of British engineering ingenuity. London and Los Angeles are two leading cities in the world and British Airways would be the first airline to connect them with the A380.
