Yes, British Airways only operates RR RB211-powered 767-300ER's/ They are deployed mostly on London-Southern Europe routes like LHR-FCO, and LHR-MXP. They are also used (or at least used to be) on some thinner Middle East routes. They also fly LGW-JFK, and MAN-JFK. They used to operate LGW-PIT, and I think are also on LGW-BWI. They have also been used on LHR-VIE, and last summer some flights to EDI, GLA, and MAN were operated by these 767's.
8 of them are en route to being shipped of to QANTAS, some are already there, due to the increased competition by Impulse and Virgin. I think they have around 20 now.

Hi! Just to let you know that LIS is also served with BA 767-300ER's. I had my taste with that bird on 98/08/29 flying from JFK to LGW - G-BNWR with "Chelsea Rose" I know that latter was changed to the "Union Jack" regular tail. I can tell that was a very pleasant and smoth flight and I was happy with the plane! My travelling happened only 3 days earlier than the SR111 crash on the same route. Suddenly I refelected a lot on that flight and those who perished on the same route I was flying!
