British Airways Announces Boeing 787 and A380 Routes

British Airways has announced that Toronto and Newark are going to be the first routes that will be served by their new Boeing 787s. Toronto is starting on September 1st on BA 93/92 while Newark is starting on October 1st on BA 187/186.

The flights are supposed to be bookable as of today, and they have some decent promotional fares for travel to/from these cities, starting at $787 roundtrip in coach, $1290 in world traveller plus, and $2787 in club world/business. Note that you can upgrade from coach to world traveller plus or from world traveller plus to club world for only half the Avios needed for a coach ticket, which would be only 10,000 Avios each way for the upgrade on these routes. And since booking a flight in world traveller plus is technically a premium cabin, if you credit to American, you get 1.5 elite qualifying points per mile.

British Airways will also start flying the A380 on routes to Los Angeles, starting on October 15th, and to Hong Kong, starting on November 15th.
