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)...

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?

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.
