Whilst BA and VA are competitors, at an engineering level they talk to each other as they share equipment, and first and foremost for those staff, safety is their priority.

Lets hope so. However as we've seen with the previous dates, a lot can change in a week.

Actually they are planned for the 28th June and 1st July, but I'm not sure which way round they are coming, do you know?

Engine OEMs have regular link calls/conferences with airlines as a group, where technical issues are discussed openly

Any news on what their first routes will be?

Do they need to spend some time going through crew familiarisation etc?

Was recently stated that theyíll be used on Ďcargoí flights however Iíve seen something else recently suggesting that ATL is back on the cards as the first destination. Training for flight crew is an iBook, Cabin Crew will be something similar. No familiarisation needed, itís just the estate version of a -8/-9

What's the procedure once a new aircraft arrives in the fleet...lots of engineering checks?

Any idea when they're scheduled to be out flying?

It will probably be flying within a week. Two weeks max. Once all the manuals have been finalised and additional engineering checks over and above those already done before delivery.
