Having never flown on a scheduled flight before, it looks like I will be on one in a few weeks time from man to lhr and v.v. So can anyone tell me what a/c types are operated by BA? I'm hoping for a 747 or 777?  Wink

It will be a 777-300ER.

BA have ordered 100 for their Shuttle routes with all deliveries completed by next Thursday  Wink

Surely the opening route for the fleet of 400 A380 arriving no??  Smile

Shame on you both. I was asking a serious question  snooty .

So, ok then, which ones are 319s/320s and 321s?

Er unlikely to be a B777 or B744. I think you have to think smaller.

To be honest, there is very little difference flying any of those Airbus aircraft you list. On an A321, it's just a longer walk if one is allocated a seat down the rear!

The A380's don't start on the Shuttle routes until the Monday after...apparently WW is waiting for Asda to take another 2p off the fuel price before he commits them to his domestic routes...

ps, the return sector of your ticket is null and void.  Silly

I'd rather have a 319 or 321. Been on 320's too many times, although it'd probably be different from the 180Y one's I'm used to  Wink

The Irn Bru isn't a problem, it's the aftershave he takes with it that causes the trouble.

So it's a serious question and so here's a serious answer.

On Saturday it's usually the 319 except BA1384 (LHR-MAN d. 0740hrs), BA1394 (LHR-MAN d. 1315hrs), BA1389 (MAN-LHR d. 1015hrs) and BA1399 (MAN-LHR d. 1530hrs) which are usually all 321s.

On Sunday it's usually the 321 except BA1398 (LHR-MAN d.1645 hrs) and BA1405 (MAN-LHR d.1825hrs) which are usually 319s.

Just occasionally (at least until the end of October) you might get a long haul 763 on an early morning flight from LHR or a mid morning flight from MAN as BA swap the aircraft they have been using on the MAN-JFK-MAN flights. But these swaps that occur once every few weeks are normally on a weekday.

The next being this Monday BA1382 ex LHR arriving MAN 07:25

The return to LHR departs 08:15 as BA 1387

You mean to say that after all your BA-bashing, you've never even flown BA?  whistleblower

You are most likely to get A319/20 or 21 but occasionally a 767 can be seen on the route. Even rarer you could see a 757 if they are running very short of Airbus.

He's banned from Wales, due to past misdemeanors with sheep, so that's a non-runner.

You never know, i've had a 777 on the LON-MAN before and the 767 does it occasionally. Mind you the A321's are really nice interior wise.

Have a quick look in either BA's timetable or into amadeus.net (or many other booking engines).
However, any subbing cannot be predicted.

Does anyone know what the Reg will be? I know it's really important to know the reg of the aircraft BEFORE taking the flight.
