An email from British Airways’ OnAir-equipped A318


I just heard from my colleage, David Kaminski-Morrow, who is on a test flight of British Airways’ new transatlantic A318 right now. He sent me the following:


I thought it fitting that you be the first ATI recipient of an email from BA’s first A318, (courtesy of OnAir!).


(At 38,000ft, somewhere over the Netherlands)

So I guess you could say that the system is working just fine :)

    Ummm…. on trans-atlantic service from UK to US going over Netherlands? Isn’t that the wrong way? I assume it is just a test flight

    You’re right. I should clarify that! It’s a test flight.

    Not a transatlantic flight, SelimT, but a ferry flight bringing the aircraft from Airbus Hamburg to London Gatwick. I think I can stake a claim as the first passenger – but I’m sworn to secrecy on the cabin interior, at least for a couple of weeks. Watch this space, though. DKM.
