The new BA 787-9 Dreamliner First Class suite will debut on the flight from London Heathrow to Delhi on 25 October 2015.

British Airways has unveiled the luxurious First Class suites that will debut on its Boeing 787-9s, the first of which will enter service in late October. While the B787-8s feature Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins, the 787-9, which is 20-foot longer than the -8, will also include eight First Class suites.

The new-look premium product includes a number of eye-catching features. The smart “jog-dial” control can be used to control recline, the headrest, lumbar support and lighting, while a touchscreen handset has been introduced for the in-flight entertainment, which is delivered on a 23-inch monitor. The device can also be used as a second screen.

An additional stowage area has been introduced next to the left armrest, while a separate locker, complete with a door-mounted mirror, and an ottoman offer further stowage space. The above video offers a more detailed insight into what awaits First Class passengers on the new 787-9.

British Airways’ 787-9 Dreamliner will enter service on the London Heathrow-Delhi route on 25 October, and the aircraft will also serve Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Austin, Kuala Lumpur, San Jose and California.
