Do you know the way to San Jose?

Last month, I looked at how the 787 had opened up more than 100 new nonstop routes worldwide. And now, British Airways has launched the first ever nonstop service between London and San Jose using a 787-9.


The 787-9 for British Airways that launched service between San Jose and London.

The new route is a daily service and the first to connect San Jose directly with Europe. British Airways’ 787-9 seats 216 customers across four cabins, including a new eight suite first class. It’s just another great example of the capabilities the 787 brings to our customers.

You can check out the British Airways 787-9 first class cabin in the video below.

Impressive video. British Airways choosing San Jose came as an unexpected surprise to me but the tech industry in the area the population growth with the city reaching 1 million a short time ago and the diversity in the area is a good reason to start service to London.

Flew for the first time in ANA's 787 Dreamliner from Kuala Lumpur to Tokyo. Enjoyed every minute of the flight.
Kudos to Boeing for producing a magnificent 787.

Randy, welcome to San Jose! This blog post hits home for me. I happen to live 5 miles from the end of San Jose airport runway. I often point out to people when I see a 787 climbing to depart for an 8000km flight how the wings are bent with a full load of fuel. Then I ask them to notice how quiet it sounds compared to jets from 40 years ago. I have to point it out because it is so quiet people do not realize what it means. No one complains about aircraft noise these days thanks to the great improvements to airframe and engine technology. On behalf of the people who no longer notice (and a few of us who do), thanks to Boeing and the engine manufacturers!
