  • London lineup -- BA's three newest aircraft
    Posted by Adrian Schofield 11:05 AM on Oct 06, 2009

    Interesting sight at London City Airport on Oct. 2… British Airways’ three newest aircraft lined up side by side. Yes, the airline’s second Embraer 170 (G-LCYE) was joined by its two A318s. This probably won’t be the only time they are all seen together, as they will all be flying out of LCY. Below is the 170 (with the A318s in the background) -- scroll down for the A318 pics.

    One of the A318s (G-EUNB) had just been delivered, and is not yet in service. The other one (G-EUNA) was being prepared for a flight to New York Kennedy Airport. When the second A318 joins the fleet, BA will boost its LCY-JFK flights to twice daily on weekdays, and once on Sunday. (Pictured below is G-EUNB).

    ...And here (below) is the first A318, G-EUNA:

     While the carrier doesn’t have any plans to order any more A318s, it will receive a total of six 170s, and has five Embraer 190s on order. All of the Embraers will operate out of LCY by BA’s CityFlyer subsidiary.
