When it comes to giving flyers the very best service in the air, British Airways (BA) claims it truly stands out from the rest.
Having flown to the North Atlantic for the past 38 years, the airline is now giving high flyers the very best service on board the new A380, which flies directly from London’s Heathrow Airport into Los Angeles International once a day.
With BA offering passengers from the Middle East a choice of 25 North American destinations, “this stands as the most offered by any airline from the Middle East.”
These routes have proved so successful that more than half of BA’s passengers from the Middle East travel onward to North Atlantic destinations from London, the airline stated.
With BA at the forefront of modern aviation, the new aircraft shows the company’s commitment to customer satisfaction, with the “customer always placed at the very heart of their business.”
Boasting plenty of space to maneuver on board the ultra-modern aircraft, the A380 offers the quietest cabin noise of any existing passenger aircraft type, giving passengers the chance to really relax.
“Once you’ve kicked back, you can unwind with more than 130 blockbusters to give you a real feel for Hollywood before touching down in Los Angeles (LA), the city renowned for its movie magic,” the airline stated.
“Opt for First class and you’ll be treated to a delicious five-course tasting menu by The Langham, the iconic glamorous London hotel famed as the birthplace of afternoon tea. The specially designed menu gives passengers the chance to experience some top recipes, including poached lobster, chicken tea and seared scallops,” it added.
“What’s more, flying First gives you the chance to indulge in a little pampering on board, with a new Aromatherapy Associates wash bag complete with a firming eye serum, revitalizing moisturizer, deodorant and other luxury goodies, to make sure you’re red carpet ready from the moment you step off the plane,” the airline stated.
“With the airline well aware that a good few hours of shut eye are a top priority on a long haul flight, it’s one of the few airlines to offer 6ft fully flat-bed seats in its Club World cabin, which will give you the chance to snooze in total comfort with crisp sheets and comfy pillows also provided,” BA stated.
With a Club World cabin on the main and upper deck, rear facing seats on the upper deck offer additional interior storage space to accommodate your personal items as well as extra flat surface for drinks and magazines.
They also provide enhanced privacy for working and sleeping with aisle access in either direction.
The stop-off at London Heathrow’s Terminal 5 en route to LA can be just as exciting as the flying experience itself, with six lounges to choose from and a wide array of shops to giving you the chance to make some prize purchases.
“Whether you want to get hold of something quintessentially British from the infamous Harrods department store, or are rather partial to designer brands like Mulberry, Alexander McQueen and Paul Smith, you’ll certainly not be left empty handed,” BA states.
“If you’re going the long haul, it’s well worth making a bee-line for the Elemis travel spa to get yourself pampered and feeling wonderfully rejuvenated with a luxurious treatment. All treatments are available on a complimentary basis to BA First Class and Club World customers as well as Gold Executive Club card members,” BA said.
“Whether you fancy a ‘shoulder to scalp’ massage to relieve stress, a facial to combat the dehydrating effects of being in the air, or a warming foot massage, each 15-minute session is specially geared toward giving high flyers the true royal treatment.”
