Finally! The First Real Photo Emerges of British Airways' A380
This is not a computer-generated rendering. This is the first real photo of the first Airbus A380 belonging to British Airways.
Early this morning, the image appeared on BA's instagram with the announcement: "Meet MSN95, our first A380 superjumbo to be painted in the famous red, white and blue livery." Airbus then also chimed in: "The next new #A380 operator in full livery fresh out of our Hamburg paint shop. Looking good @British_Airways."
There are 469 passenger seats inside of it, and all are already on sale from $830 and up, as we announced a month ago. First flights won't happen for several months, however, as regular service is due to begin between London and Los Angeles on October 15 and between London and Hong Kong on November 15, 2013.
Curious to check out the interior? There's no photographs of that quite yet, but there does exist a virtual fly-through video of the cabin. It's only a matter of time now until you see her in the sky over California...
