British Airways - Building the 787-9 Dreamliner

British Airways has welcomed the arrival of our first 787-9 Dreamliner. This time-lapse video takes you behind the scenes at Boeing's factory where the aircraft is expertly built.

The 787-9 is 20ft longer than its 787-8 predecessor, making room for our new painstakingly designed eight seat First cabin.

The 787-9 will start flying to Delhi in October 2015, followed by Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Kuala Lumpur and Austin.
