British Airways’ All-Business A318 is Now on Google Street View

British Airways operates Airbus A318s across the Atlantic, flying between London’s City airport and JFK in New York. The flight operates twice a day during the week, and once on Sundays. There’s a fuel stop in Shannon, Ireland on the westbound leg, where passengers on BA001, the earlier flight, also clear US customs at the airport’s Preclearance facility.

The flights are pretty exclusive, with just 32 business-class seats on board. Fortunately, you can now take a tour without purchasing a ticket, courtesy of Google Street View. Believe it or not, Google’s been bringing its Street View camera on board aircraft since 2013, when it launched the series with Emirates’ A380.

If BA’s flight is a bit too pricy, there’s another all-business narrow-body flight that you can book — Scandinavian’s all-business 737 currently flies from Houston to Stavanger, and it’ll soon launch on the airline’s Newark to Copenhagen route, though unfortunately award seats haven’t been loaded yet.
