I've been craving to get my first 757 experience and since i'll be getting time off college for Christmas i was gonna use one day to take a ride on this baby (preferably BA).I just have to experience this so called "amazing take off performance ".
I was hoping to do it on a UK domestic flight but i think that these are operated byAirbus from LHR.Does anyone know if 757's are used say lhr- edinburgh/glasgow or manchester.If not do you know on which routes they are?
Any help is greatly appreciated.

It is very difficult in BA shorthaul to guarantee an aircraft type for a particular service. There is a plan but the actual aircraft on a flight number changes from day to day and week to week, especially around holidays, when less businessmen are travelling and more VFR. We have a flt nbr out of ARN which is a B757 or A320 or A319 on different days of the week, and will be on other days over Christmas. But the aircraft types are planned into the system about three months ahead. So the best bet is to check ba.com and see, remembering that unserviceability or weather on the day can change it all around.
