Biman Bangladesh B777-300/ER London to Dhaka (Trip Report Part 1) – Dhaka Video



Follow me on a colourful journey from London to Bangladesh on-board Biman Bangladesh Airlines B777-300/ER. This is their flagship route from London to Dhaka with an immediate stop in Sylhet.

During this trip report video, I will show you both Business Class and Economy Class service and seating. Watch out of many fun Interactions with many Bangladeshi passengers and crew!

This is the first part of 2 mega vlogs. Stay tuned for the next episode where I was given a tour at Biman Catering Center and hangar. I took 4 lucky winners and first time flyers to fly Biman Boeing 787 Dreamliner.

From one bustling metropolis to another by air – immerse yourself in an exhilarating flight from London to Dhaka, capital of Bangladesh, on board the Boeing 777-300ER with the national flag carrier of Bangladesh, Biman Bangladesh Airlines.

We go via the Bangladeshi city of Sylhet, making use of Osmani International Airport, the third largest airport in Bangladesh after those in the cities of Dhaka and Chittagong. Our flight is delayed in taking off by a few hours but that gives us all the more time to experience the executive Plaza premium lounge!

On board, we examine the economy and business classes of Biman and enjoy the personal and delicate hospitality provided by Biman Airlines air crew. Due to the currently closed Pakistani air-space, this flight took a few hours longer than normal but this delay also works to our advantage, giving us more time to savour the famous and exquisite Biman Air curry and enjoy a well earned nap as we look at the sleeping arrangements on board Biman.

Whilst Biman operates internal flights between Sylhet and Dhaka which arrive from major international destinations such as London and Abu Dhabi, interestingly it is currently impossible to take a direct flight from Sylhet to an international destination; one must go through Dhaka first. This apparent contradiction is caused by the runways at Osmani International not being adapted for heavier aeroplanes to take off from and is set to be rectified within two years in a 63 million US dollar upgrade project.

Biman comes from humble roots, having been founded in 1972 as a government owned entity and initially only operating internal flights between Dhaka, Chittagong, Jessore and Sylhet using a single Douglas DC-3 aeroplane borrowed from India. It enjoyed a monopoly on air travel within Bangladesh until the dawn of competition in 1996 and was privatised in 2007. Since then, it has signed deals with Boeing for several new aircraft, including the Boeing 777 and Boeing 787 Dreamliner, and has greatly increased the scope and quality of its on board amenities, investing heavily to bring internet, telephone and television services on board its new Boeing aeroplanes.

  11. Biman needs to bring back its Buffet Cart, for Business Class Meal Service. Also, all plastic wrap and aluminum foil needs to be removed (for Business Class) before giving to the customer.
