British Airways 787 Suffers Heathrow Delay After Seattle Signoff

Wednesday, 26 Jun 2013 10:34 AM

June 26 (Bloomberg) -- British Airways said it has taken delivery of its first Boeing Co. 787 at the U.S. company’s manufacturing base in Seattle, though the plane’s arrival in London has been put back for unspecified operational reasons.

BA, a unit of International Consolidated Airlines Group SA, had originally been due to take delivery of its first Boeing Dreamliner last month before a global grounding related to battery flaws. The carrier said June 10 that an initial two planes were expected to join the fleet today and tomorrow.

“Operational issues have led to a slight delay in the arrival of the aircraft into Heathrow,” spokesman Tony Cane said in an e-mailed response to questions. “We expect our first two 787s to arrive at Heathrow within the next few days.”
