Hi,
I was just looking at the BA factbook from 1997 and I noticed several routes that I did not know BA served (more to the point, I cannot remeber them serving these routes).

They are;

Jakarta
Seoul
Nagoya
Osaka
Colombo


Does anyone know how often and with what equipment these routes were served with. I would be particuarly interested to know about Jakarta.

Thanks for any help.

The Colombo flight routed Gatwick-Abu Dhabi-Colombo, using the DC-10. I think it operated twice weekly.

Thanks.

I have found out that Osaka was suspended and Jakarta reduced from 6 to 2 flights per week in '98.

Does anyone else have any info?

Incidentally, both JL and BA used to operate non-stop flights to Nagoya from LHR, but no airline currently does.

Osaka, Kansai, was dropped as the route wasn't terribly profitable. The high landing fees played a part.

Jakarta was served as a continuation from Kuala Lumpur on a 744 out of Heathrow. As you say the frequency was cut from 6 to 2 in '98 when BA started a thrice weekly LHR-KUL-SYD service. Then a year later I think in March 1999 the Jakarta service was scrapped altogether.

Kuala Lumpur also got the axe soon after although it operated with excellent loads 5 times a week with the 777-236IGW - back then - it was BA's longest 777 route

Colombo was originally served from LGW on a DC10 via AUH for 2 seasons, then DXB for 3 seasons then on a 777 from LHR for 1/2 seasons, then dropped.
