British Airways will introduce an A380 on its Miami-London route this weekend. Starting on Sunday, October 25, the massive aircraft will service one of two flights per day between the cities. The other flight will continue to operate on a 747 aircraft. If you were lucky enough to snag the BA business-class deals last week, you might have the chance to fly the A380 on your flights between the US and London.


The A380 has two full decks.

The A380 is one of the biggest planes in BA’s fleet, with four cabins and 469 seats. The airline ordered 12 A380 aircraft for delivery in 2016, so there will be more chances to fly in this behemoth over the coming months. Miami is the fourth American city with British Airways A380 service along with Los Angeles, San Francisco and Washington D.C.

The A380 is one of the most luxurious planes in the skies, and while TPG hasn’t had a chance to personally fly British Airway’s product yet, he has flown the aircraft on other carriers, including Qatar and Sinagpore.
