Looking at lhr-lgw.co.uk, BA have reinstated B737-436 G-DOCB!

This aircraft had been operating for Air One of Italy, but kept it's British registration.
On the 15th November, it operated BA2724/25 (MUC) and 2562/63 (BLQ).

Have they bought it back so the A319's can go back to LHR? (Currently only one at LGW now, G-EUOH)

Whats going on?!

Dunno, it was on the LGW-GLA vv milk run on 16th and 17th November too, but no reports since.

Seems to have been returned from ADH lease.

I had a look on there but it said it had last been updated on the Homepage, on the 7th October 2005, so didnt think it would have any relevant information!

Not only has 737-436 G-DOCB returned but BA has also received A320-211 G-BUSJ back from GT. These two aircraft aren't allowing shorthaul expansion, but merely enable BA to reschedule aircraft to free up the four shorthaul 767s that are being reconfigured for longhaul operations.


Let's Go British Caledonian!

The first of the 767s is G-BNWD. It ended its short haul career on 30 October. It stayed at LHR for heavy maintenance until 9 Nov when it was ferried to LGW for the 'Dusk' cabin conversion. Note that the dates jibe with the return of G-DOCB. However I believe that BA are planning that most of the replacement capacity for the four short haul 767s to be transferred to the long haul fleet will come by improved average utilisation of the remaining short haul fleet.
