One route is IAH-ORD, but to the best of my knowledge they dont have fith freedom rights. The flight just continues on to LHR from ORD.

The main ones are:
BKK-SYD
SIN-SYD
SIN-MEL

Comair operates route on a franchise agreement for BA like Regional Air in East Africa, Loganair in Scotland etc.

COEWRNJ is correct that BA lacks 5th freedom on IAH-ORD.

BA flies LHR-BAH-DOH (and return), and does have 5th freedom rights (i.e. you can buy a ticket for just the BAH-DOH or DOH-BAR sector of the flight).

The only BA Mainline flights that I am aware of are as BaXMAN stated:

BKK-SYD
SIN-SYD
SIN-MEL

BA have full rights to carry passengers on these trips to my knowledge.

The other routes like GIG-GRU you cant just buy tix for these sectors.

ChrisZRH, as BAxMAN already mentioned, it's actually not BA flying those planes, but airlines operating under a franchise agreement: from JNB it's Comair, a South African airline that existed for quite a while before they teamed up with BA - and from NBO it's Regional Air (operated by Air Kenya)...

You can find the list of franchise carriers here:

They might look like BA, they might feel like BA, but they're not BA.

Also in the Middle East they fly AUH(Abu Dhabi)-MCT(Muscut) with 777s

Back in 2000 they flew HBE(Alexandria-Borg Al Arab)-LXR(Luxor) on a 2x weekly basis with A320s. Now LXR has been replaced with Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) which is a continuation of their Alexandria flights (4x weekly A320).
Note: operated by British Mediterranean

Back in the 1990's/early 2000, BA flew LGW - ISB - MAN- LGW with the B742 and later the B744, did they have rights to carry pax between MAN and LGW? I always wanted to know.Would have been so cool to have booked a ticket on the "shuttle" and have flown a 747!!

CKT523, that depends: if all pax went through immigration/customs in MAN, then they could have taken more on board for the leg to LGW... but mixing pax from the international sector and domestic pax is at least a logistical nightmare, and most countries simply don't permit it.

Back in the 60s/70s I think, there was a BOAC flight (BA prefix?) routed something like TYO-HKG-CMB-SEZ-JNB. I think the route had a name, but damned if I can think what it was now. Ideas/memories anyone?

In the late 90s BA used to operate LHR-OTP-Baku and return on the same route. Thus the OTP-Baku segment is within the bounds of your question. However, BA was not allowed to sell OTP-Baku seats.


Fly me to the moon... but not through LHR!

I've flown BA Comair, and I have to state that you really can't tell any difference between Comair and the mainline. Well, other than that Comair has tons of room in coach (far more than AA!) and free booze, and good food, even on the JNB<->DUR run.
