British Airways recently launched a direct flight from LHR to AUS and it’s getting a lot of takers.  The flight lasts a little over 10 hours gate to gate and eliminates the transfer through Dallas, which can be problematic and is definitely longer. 

The flight is usually operated on a Boeing 787 with 4 classes of service: First Class, Business Class, Premium Economy and Economy.  The standard baggage allowance for the flight is 23kg.

The flight departs London at 12:35pm local time and arrives in Austin at 4pm local time.  The return flight leaves Austin at 8:00pm and arrives in London at 10:00am local time.  The BA website states the service runs multiple days per week. 

The direct flight is perfect timing for the SXSW festival that runs from March 7 – 16, 2014.
