British Airways last month announced plans to create a business-class service from London City Airport (LCY) to New York via Shannon, Ireland. The airline was forced to incorporate a tech stop due to payload restrictions associated with LCY’s 3,934-foot-long runway. British Airways said it will acquire Airbus A318s configured with 32 business-class seats to operate the service. The European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) last year approved the A318 for the 5.5-degree steep approach at LCY.
