The new High-Tech First-Class Cabin from British Airlines looks amazing!

They have giving us a sneak peek on how their latest first-class cabin, located on Dreamliner 787-9, looks like.

The Dreamliner 787-9 will now be traveling to a lot of new destinations, and will have prices starting from $3,795 return.

With eight first-class seats per aircraft, compared to 14 on other British Airways aircraft, this new first-class cabin is very exclusive.

Guests can control their in-flight entertainment with a new headset that British Airways say operates like a smartphone.

During flight, the handset can be docked so that customers are also able to watch one item, such as the moving map, on the handset and another, such as a film, on the 23inch fixed screen.

This also means travelers will be able to enjoy gate-to-gate entertainment, without having to stow their television for take-off and landing.

The carrier pointed out that some features on the new Dreamliner 787-9 will benefit everyone.

The lighting in every cabin, for instance, can be set to reflect the time of day, helping to lull travelers to sleep at night and to wake up in the morning.
