BA adds capacity, first class on Las Vegas flights

British Airways has boosted capacity and added a first class cabin on its route to Las Vegas following a successful launch in 2009.

Moving over to a Boeing 747, BA will add 18 per cent capacity to the route – a total of 124 seats, including 14 in first class.

The non-stop daily flights to Las Vegas from London Heathrow Terminal 5 launched in October 2009.

British Airways’ new first class cabin allows customers to start their holiday in comfort and creates an exclusive experience based on classic design and understated luxury.

Simon Talling-Smith, executive vice president, Americas, said: “We are so proud of the success of our Las Vegas route that we launched just over one year ago.

“The demand has been great so we’re delighted to be able to increase capacity on this route. Additional seats mean more travellers get to see the best of London, the UK and the rest of the world.

“And for our high roller flyers, we are thrilled to now offer our award winning First class on this route.”
