British Airways has launched a second non-stop flight from London to Las Vegas, operating its first London Gatwick-Las Vegas flight on October 29.
The airline is operating its three-times-weekly service between London Gatwick Airport and Las Vegas with three-class Boeing 777-200ER widebodies featuring Club World (business class), World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and World Traveller (economy class) cabins.
The new route offers BA customers more choice and frequency to London airports. Together with its existing daily Heathrow-Las Vegas service, British Airways is now operating 10 flights a week from Las Vegas.
British Airways’ Club World cabins feature the six-foot long, fully flat-bed seats, the Club Kitchen and an on-demand in-flight entertainment system.
The World Traveller Plus cabin features seats with 38-inch pitch and providing in-seat power for personal computers, CD/DVD players or the like. Customers can order a choice of meals from the Club World cabin.
BA’s flight from Las Vegas McCarran International Airport (LAS) to London Gatwick (LGW) operates on Mondays, Wednesdays and Saturdays and departs at 3:55 p.m.
According to BA, the new Gatwick route will offer customers increased access to London, as well as convenient onward connections to Edinburgh, Amsterdam, Venice and Male (the capital of the Maldives), as well as other destinations.
British Airways launched its first service from Las Vegas to London Heathrow Airport three years ago. The carrier operates a daily flight on this route using Boeing 747-400 widebodies with four cabins: First Class, Club World, World Traveller Plus and World Traveller.
