The fleets for BA LHR are EF (A319/320/321 and B757/767) and WW (B747/767/777 or B747/777).

What did the fleets look like in the mid and late 90's and early 00's?

Quoting LaPaige (Thread starter):
WW (B747/767/777 or B747/777).

BA do actually use the 767 on quite a few long haul routes.

They do but not all of the CC are actually licensed on the 767 (as they have the option of coming off that aircraft after some time). For WW it's either 747 and 777 or 747, 767 and 777.

LHR WW used to be 747-400, 747-200, 747-100 and 777's
LGW WW used to be 747-400, 747-200, DC10 and 777's

LHR EF 737's (200 & 400s) 757, 767 and A320

I think I got that right..

Plus you had Concorde which I believe was done by EF cabin crews, but I could be wrong.

BA's cabin crew management sometimes have little sense, why not have all WW crew licensed on all 3 seeing as they can be! And why give them the option of coming off, who runs BA crew??!?! Bassa is seems.............

I believe part of the reasoning behind not all WW crew being on the 767 is that compared to the 747 and 777 there are so few of them that if all the however many thousands of cabin crew at WW (including those on various part time contracts) trained on it, they would more often than not go out of check and constantly have to be retrained. By keeping a limited number of crew licensed on it, it is easier to control this problem which is also quite common on Eurofleet.

It is similar at LGW, in that not everybody is trained on the few A319s they have as it would be easy to go out of check. For a long time people would volunteer to go on the Airbus, and now as the fleet is growing it is being rostered to crew in reverse seniority.

Sorry for hijacking the thread but you probably know the answer already... I was wondering how many examples of each type (767, 777, etc...) BA has based at LHR and LGW.


I've got $h*t to do

Well BA base all of its 747 fleet at LHR, so that is 54 744s.

So which specific 777s remain based at LGW, and which A319s are now classed as being LGW based (or are due to move there from LHR)?

Are all LGW CC trained on the 777 as well as the 737, as I know BA use the CC on both S/H and L/H flights. With A318 flights from LCY later next year the LGW CC will operate these, so crew ill need to be AIrbus and 777 trained. From what has been said above about rostering by reversed seniority, does this mean that LCY and JFK flights (The LCY crew will work in/out via JFK on the 777 too) will not be open to senior CC?
