Full Answer

British Airways, often abbreviated to "BA", is the largest airline in the United Kingdom based on fleet size, international flights, and international destinations. BA's main hub is London Heathrow airport, located in London, England. BA is the result of a merger between two national airline companies and two regional airline companies in 1972. By 2012 BA grew even larger with the acquisitions of three more major airlines, British Caledonian in 1987, Dan-Air in 1992, and British Midland International in 2012. Currently BA boasts a fleet of 293 aircraft, including 53 Boeing-747s and 43 Boeing 777s.

As of 2015, BA plans to roll out a newly redesigned first class section in its Boeing 787-9s. The new entertainment controller for the seats combines a haptic interface with a smartphone-like feel to revolutionize the way flyers consume information while on the plane. Nestled right into the seat, passengers will have the option of viewing flight information or media on either the new console or on the 23-inch screen directly in front of them.

While these new seats certainly come with a larger price tag, regular, cheaper coach tickets are still available for purchase, albeit without all the bells and whistles of the new first class.
