MIAMI — British Airways will serve San Francisco International Airport with the Airbus A380 five times per week beginning March 29, 2015San Francisco will become the third US city to receive A380 service from British Airways to service after Los Angeles (September 2013) and Washington-Dulles (from October 2014). Flight schedules for the new A380 flights are as follow:

BA 287 ~~ LHR – SFO ~~ D: 1415 A: 1710 ~~ 1**4567

BA 286 ~~ SFO – LHR ~~ D: 1920 A: 1330+1 ~~ 1**4567

**On Tuesdays and Wednesdays, a Boeing 747-400 will operate

British Airways has six A380s in its fleet, configured with 469 seats in a four-class configuration ( 14F / 97J / 55Y+ / 303Y ). It also has an additional six aircraft on order with deliveries scheduled through 2016.

British Airways currently serves San Francisco twice per day using a Boeing 747-400, and the second daily flight will remain a 747-400 next summer as well. To London, it faces competition from Virgin Atlantic, who will have two daily flights to San Francisco next summer, and United Airlines, who also offers two flights per day.

British Airways currently flies its A380s to Hong Kong, Johannesburg, and Los Angeles, operating one daily flight to Hong Kong and Johannesburg, and two to Los Angeles. However, by the end of 2014, the airline will take delivery of an additional two airframes, which will allow it to launch daily A380 service to Washington Dulles, and thrice weekly A380 service to Singapore later this year.

British Airways will become the fourth carrier to serve San Francisco with the Airbus A380, joining Lufthansa (daily to Frankfurt), Air France (daily to Paris Charles de Gaulle), and Emirates (daily to Dubai). In total, eight US cities will be served by the Airbus A380: Atlanta, Dallas Fort Worth, Houston-Bush, Los Angeles, Miami, New York JFK, San Francisco, Washington Dulles. Nine foreign airlines will operate a combined 414 flights per week to and from the United States with the Airbus super-jumbo, which has not been ordered by a US airline to date.
