British Airways today took delivery of its new double-Decker 'superjumbo' which airline bosses say will herald a new era for the nation's flagship airline.

This morning the giant of the skies touched down at Heathrow in London, waved on by cheering BA staff who welcomed its arrival.
 
The plane is the first of a dozen of A380s ordered by British Airways ahead of the model going into service in the autumn.

British Airways today has taken delivery of the new double-Decker 'superjumbo' which airline bosses say will herald 'a new era' for the nation¿s flagship airline – the A3B0
 
 
BA says passengers will find its new £270million Airbus A380 bigger, more spacious, more comfortable, quieter and 'greener' than the ageing Jumbo jets it replaces – with fresher in-flight air to boot
 
It is part of the airline's wider five-year £5bn investment plan to refresh its fleet with 52 new aircraft including the Airbus's new rival Boeing 787 dubbed the 'plastic plane'.

Arrival: Captain James Basnett landed BA's new double-Decker Airbus A380 touching down bang on time at 10.30am after a smooth and eerily quiet one and a half hour flight from the Airbuse factory in Toulouse
 
 
Arrival: BA staff celebrate outside at Heathrow as the A380 parks up for the first time outside its airbase
 

Pilot: The cockpit of the new A380 plane which has touched down at Heathrow for the first time
 
 

 
Up top: Inside the cockpit of the A380. The plane has two pilots, although on longer flights four will be used
 
 
The vast double Decker superjumbo planes can theoretically carry up to 800 people – provided all the passengers are squeezed into narrow economy-sized seats
 
 
BA add that the new economy seats have been cleverly designed to be thinner backed and hollowed out to increase seating space for passengers.
