Passengers using Dulles airport will have more options to fly the 787 Dreamliner and A380. For these airlines to use the newest and most technologically advanced aircraft shows how important and competitive the Washington market has become in recent years. In my opinion, the quality of your flight experience truly depends on the aircraft you fly.
British Airways: Service scheduled to begin October 2 with flight BA 216/217. The will be the second airline – after Air France – to fly the A380 to Dulles.
Virgin Atlantic: British Airways arch rival will deploy the Dreamliner aircraft to Dulles effective December 17, 2014.
Etihad: The Abu Dhabi-based carrier will use the 787-9 effective January 1, 2015.
Note: Ethiopian currently uses the 787 for service to IAD.
