BA will opt for an all Airbus fleet, including A3XX's, A330 and off course A320 narrow body acft.

They have started-up a major fleet renewal program this year with the introduction of the first A320. The main point is that they opt for smaller acft to increase their load factor and frequencies on some routes.

The fact is that BA is already facing out some 757 in favour of Airbus narrowbody acft.

Only some routes out of LHR to Asia will be served with bigger acft like the A3XX.

Cheers Fokplanes

Forkplanes,

You sure BA will go for Airbus??? How about the B777s??? I think BA will still be in favour of Boeing except for the A319s...

BA, as the biggest international airline, will, if they don´t make mistakes, stay on top. That means they do now and will in future operate the largest widebody fleet outside the US.

Very happy with the 777, I really don´t see them with all A330/A340 replacing the Boeing. But that the small/midsize aircraft-fleet will be all-Airbus (A319/320/321) after 2005 is quite likely. No 737NG-orders, the 757s leaving the fleet rapidly.

Two possible scenarios for the widebody-fleet at the end of this decade:
1. On top 10 A3XXs, then 50% of the current 747-400 fleet slowly declining, some 777-300s and about 60 777-200s. Maybe A330-200s to replace the 767s.
2. About 20 747X Stretch, 10 747X, 50% of the current 747-400-fleet and a lot of 777-200s. A330s replacing 767s.
