The route will be operated by one of British Airways newest aircraft, the Boeing 787-8 Dreamliner.
In addition to the current Tokyo - London flight that leaves Haneda in the morning, we are adding a latenight codeshare flight with joint venture partner British Airways to reinforce our network not only to the UK but throughout the European region.
