The A380 superjumbo will leave Heathrow on its maiden long-haul flight on September 24, bound for the bright lights of Los Angeles.

Hollywood actress, Thandie Newton, said: "British Airways’ A380 aircraft is like a grand hotel in the sky. It's luxurious and ultra modern. I feel particularly lucky because I make frequent trips to Los Angeles, and now even a long weekend to LA seems appealing, because the holiday begins as soon as you get on the superjumbo. Who thought travelling could get any more exciting?"

Reminiscent of Hollywood glamour, Newton is pictured on the aircraft’s sweeping staircase, which leads to the upper deck with Club World (business class), World Traveller Plus and World Traveller (economy) cabins. The main deck hosts the First class cabin, along with further Club World and World Traveller cabins.

Twelve A380s will join the British Airways fleet over the next four years as part of the airline's £5bn investment in products and services for customers. The aircraft are due to fly to Hong Kong from October 22 and Johannesburg from February next year. The innovative design of the A380 makes it much quieter during take-off and landing and 16 per cent more fuel efficient than a Boeing 747.
