Sorry I couldn't help that. It's really sad that I find it amusing.

Quoting Myt332 (Reply 1): Quoting Solnabo (Thread starter):
My question is do they really have that many left ´cuz all you see these days are the A32X flying.
And they are all based at LGW. Some of the BA leased 735s have made their first ever visit to LHR in the last five or sixth months for repainting in the BA LHR paint shop. The cost of doing this suggests that BA expect to continue to operate them for some time yet although they were all obtained on a five year lease that has been renewed (but for how long?).
At LGW it is usual for just one BA A319 to be in service. The aircraft varies as it is rotated with other LHR based aircraft at night stops at either MAN or another domestic airport served from both LHR and LGW.

Quoting Solnabo (Reply 4): Thx for the info, btw what´s so funny about my question?
A mystery to me as well.
Yes they do have a fleet of 2nd generation 737's, which are getting on a bit. They are however by the little different to the shorthaul fleet age of many other major airlines. One example is that if you look at the US majors most of them have large fleets of MD80's or 737's which are older.
If they do the job and turn in a profit what's the problem ?

I had no idea that Gatwick have all the 737´s. Pics you see is mostly from Heathrow and most European airports are the A32x hence my question and I don´t doubt for a second that BA´s 737 are doing a great job, nobody cares exept a.nutters what we fly in from point A to B.
