BA returns two stored 747-400s to active service

British Airways has returned to active service two of the eight 747-400 aircraft it grounded during the recession. Demand for travel is rising and BA is keen to take advantage of the upturn to release extra capacity it took out during the downturn and in some areas looking at flying to more destinations.

The two 350-seat 747-400s are undergoing maintenance checks. One will be reinstated at the start of the new year, with the second planned for reintroduction in the summer. One will replace a 777 on the London to Dallas route, the latter being freed up to fly from London to JFK.
