VIDEO: British Airways new A380 undergoing final tests

Video footage shows British Airways new A380 undergoing final tests before it is delivered to the airline in July.

If you pay attention to the start of the video you will see that there are in fact 2 British Airways A380s. The first aircraft is set to be delivered at the start of July and the second shortly after. Both aircraft will initially see service between Heathrow and Europe so as to familiarise crew with the new aircraft.

In October, the first scheduled A380s services will then commence on the ‘Red Carpet Route’ between Heathrow and Los Angeles before the airline launch flights between Heathrow and Hong Kong in November.
