With A319s going to LGW replacing B737s, more A320/1s arriving at LHR, B787s replacing B767s, B777 fleet changes, and A380s arriving, will BA have a significant percentage incrase in capacity at both LGW and LHR when all of this is complete?

In a word - yes.

Although 77W will replace 744s on some routes which will be a capacity downgrade, but don't be surprised to see BA take more A321s in due course to replace the 752s before the 788s arrive, so its not increases across the board.



What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Quoting Richardw (Thread starter):

Not the shorthaul 767s though. Once the 767s are retired BA's short haul fleet will be entirely narrowbody so you could say that is a capacity reduction (767s won't be replaced with anything larger than A321). However I guess with the A320s replacing A319s it balances out.

Even though I keep hearing this, I still don't see the 767s being replaced by narrowboadies. One important reason why BA flies the 767 in some European routes is because of their cargo capacity. I wouldn't be surprised if BA configures some of their 787s for short haul flying...

I think the shorthaul 767's will be around for a while yet.

Don't see the economics on using a 787 within Europe. Much more likely that BA World Cargo will sub a few more EAT 306F/752F rotations me thinks.

Only possibility is that the interim order currently out to tender in which the 332 is being offered is taken as these could be employed on the mid haul routes i suppose.

BA have already revealed the 787-8 configuration as most definitely long haul (Club World, WT+, WT), and the 787-9 is hardly a short haul aircraft (nor really is the 787-8).

This is so to a point, but as has already been mentioned, you are more likely to see an increase in DHL/EAT flying rather than 787's on shorthaul ops.
