Hi all
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.

BA's online timetable lists aircraft types, and always gives the schedule for the full week to identify flights where equipment varies.

LHR-MAN usually sees at least a couple of 757 rotations daily, quite a change from 10 years ago when it was all 757s except a couple of 767 rotations!

Have a look at ba.com, they normally tell you which aircraft they intend to use.

I've been on a couple of 757's from LHR to NCL.

To be honest, I'm bloody sick of 757's. Everytime I go on holiday to places like Salou or Tenerife I end up on a 757.

I think the early morning (7:30 ish) BA MAN-LHR is operated by a 757. And back is the same. I've flown in many times when connecting to fly long haul from LHR.

Best seats to get are the front cabin, preferably 3 A/B/C. On most of them I think row 1/2 ABC aren't there so 3 is the first on the right. Rather cosy  Smile

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.

If it's a de-rated takeoff, you may be disappointed.

At least the 757 can do poweerful take offs when not derated. Every 321 or 340 take off seems like a derated take off to me.

The BA 1306/7 LHR-ABZ-LHR is a 757.

With the smaller runway than Edi/Gla the take off's are more powerful  airplane
