Strategic developments

 

In February, IAG announced that it is ordering 18 Boeing 777-9 aircraft, plus 24 options, for British Airways. These will be used to replace 14 Boeing 747-400 and four Boeing 777-200 between 2022 and 2025. Each aircraft will be fitted with 325 seats in four cabins.

 

British Airways announced it is moving to a new location in Terminal 8 at John F. Kennedy airport. The airline is investing in the new terminal with American Airlines as part of a significant reinvestment by the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey. Changes will include additional aircraft stands, enhanced state-of the-art baggage systems, new lounges, premium check-in areas and upgraded concessions.
