 View Document

NEW YORK, Apr. 26 – Having just celebrated its one year anniversary of flights between New Orleans
and London, British Airways has launched a special fare to mark another anniversary – that of the city’s
300th anniversary.

To recognize the special anniversary, and to honor the state of the art aircraft operating the flight – a
Boeing 787 Dreamliner - British Airways has launched a special $787 roundtrip fare, including all taxes,
fees and carrier charges.

The special $787 fare is valid for travel on select dates this fall in World Traveller, the airline’s economy
cabin. Tickets need to be purchased by May 10, 2018. British Airways flies between the two cities five
times per week: Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Simon Brooks, Senior Vice President of Sales for British Airways said: "This is a great year for British
Airways and the city of New Orleans. We have just celebrated our one year anniversary of flying
between New Orleans and London and now the city is celebrating its 300th anniversary. Congratulations!

"We’re pleased to be able to share in the celebrations and offer this special $787 fare to London. New
Orleanians will be able to fly in style on the Dreamliner and enjoy the sights of London.”

The World Traveller economy cabin features seats with adjustable headrest, lumbar support and recline.

Customers can benefit from a multi-million dollar investment in its economy catering, with a welcome
drink and pretzels and a four course meal.

Every seat has a personal screen with a wide range of on-demand entertainment (allows to select TV
shows and movies), including a variety of kids’ shows. The "Feed Kids First" service ensures that children are served first, allowing parents to enjoy their own meal.

The popular meal options for customers with special dietary requirements will continue to be available
to book on more than 24 hours ahead of their flight departing.
