LONDON, UK - After several months of delay, British Airways' first Boeing 787-10 with registration G-ZBLA has landed at London-Heathrow, where it will join the rest of the fleet.

Boeing's Dreamliner Family jets have been a key part of the British Airways long-haul operations since the arrival of the airline’s first 787-8 in June 2013. The British flag carrier currently operates 12 787-8 and 18 787-9s.

Following issues with the Rolls Royce Trent 1000 engines, the 787s were globally grounded several months and the airline had to lease some of Airbus A330 aircraft from Qatar Airways as a temporary substitute.

British Airways currently has 12 Boeing 787-10s on order.

The airline was expecting to take delivery of its first Boeing 787-10 in January and planning to deploy it on the carrier's London-Atlanta route.

In April, Boeing temporarily suspended operations at the 787 production line in Charleston, South Carolina due to the coronavirus pandemic. The manufacturer resumed production in early May.
