Could someone please tell me how many seats are on BA's Boeing 767s, and how many seats are in each class? (CW, WTP, WT)
The reason I ask is.....if BA ordered the B787-300 or B787-800 (I think they are the same length and would be configured the same?), how many seats could BA configure for these aircraft? Could it be a direct replacement for their B767's or are they different in size?

The 767s seating arrangements are:
For the new 767 fitted with the New Club World Cabins:
24 New Club World
144 World Traveller
This is the obsolete cabin (not sure if theyre all gone but I think they are
36 Club World
137 World Traveller
As for the 787, I thik unfortunately that if we see an order it will be for a small number, no more than 20, simply to rpelace the 763s and maybe aid some less popular long-haul routes being started, maybe from MAN
Im not sure, I think so, but the 767 was and still isn't the right aircraft for the route. BA have long said that the 777 would be better suited to the route, they just don't have one to spare, or rather the spare can be put to more important LHR work. But yes, for an unsuitable a/c, the 767 is better suited in this configuration.
The MAN-JFK route is very very popular, hence why BA kept it on. They were willing to transport crews from LHR and make numerous compromises to continue the route. They have long said the popularity warrants a 777, but the 777s are so sought after that they cannot get one as yet. Time will tell, would be ace to see a BA777 @ MAN

Quoting CRJ900 (Reply 9): Didn't BA have 247-seat B763s in the 1990's? I had a timetable with seat maps from the late 90's... I guess they were the Euro-configs...? How long did they last in that config?
Yep, they are the Short-Haul fleet 767's. BA still have a very small number of S/H 767's left in that configuration at the moment.
Quoting BA787 (Reply 7): And again lol, I didn't know that the 767s used MAN-JFK were different lol, but kinda assumed they must have been
Yep, that's why they always had the same aircraft doing MAN-JFK until last year, because it was the only one with that configuration.
Quoting 8herveg (Reply 11): swear I always see spare BA widebody jets on the apron at LHR. Surely if they did some re-scheduling of some of their current LHR routes, they could find a single B777 to do the route?
If you mean the parked up at the hangars at LHR (big yellow buildings by the 27R runway), they're no free, they're either scheduled for maintenance or have come out of maintenance and are waiting their next flight. BA's fleet is operating at pretty much full capacity, they simply don't have spare aircrafts.
Always stand up for what is right, even if it means standing alone..
