Boeing 757-200 (OpenSkies)

Boeing 757-200.

OpenSkies, British Airways' wholly owned subsidiary, operates the Boeing 757 aircraft on longhaul routes between Europe and North America. The aircraft are entirely transformed into large 'private jets' with a three cabin configuration: 'Biz Bed' has fully flat beds, 'Prem Plus' has roomy seats that recline 130° and 'Eco' has comfortable leather seats.

The Boeing 757-200 is a single aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Boeing, the American aerospace company. It was designed in the 1980s as a replacement to the very successful Boeing 727, and over 1,000 have been built since.

Passenger benefits include:

  • Acknowledged as the most reliable aircraft in the world
  • More environmentally friendly: fitted winglets reduce fuel consumption by 5%
