BA takes delivery of Boeing 777-300 ER

British Airways has become the first UK airline to receive a Boeing 777-300 ER. The new aircraft is 11ft longer than a B747 and its CO2 emissions will be 23% lower per sear than the B747-200. Its interior includes new World Traveller and World Traveller Plus cabins, as well as a new in-flight entertainment system with more entertainment options and high-resolution screens. “We will add two more B777-300s by the end of this year, and three more by early 2012,” revealed BA CEO Willie Walsh. “All these new aircraft generate significantly less CO2 emissions per seat than their predecessors and reinforce British Airways’ commitment to reduce its carbon footprint.”
