I have noticed that BA have during the strike cancelled all there flights usually operated by there L/H 767's.

BA operates it's L/H 767's to:

ACC
BWI
DAR
EBB
EWR (BA187/BA186)
HYD
JED
LUN
NAS
PHL (BA069/BA068)
TLV (BA164/BA162)
YYC
YYZ (BA099/BA098)

The use of BA 767's on shorthaul flights has also been reduced. Over the next 3 days that BA's flights to DME usually operated by 767's are being operated by a mix of A320/A321's

Does anyone know if these are parked up at LHR, being used for freight or being stored at another airport?

Makes sense I suppose as the 767s require more cabin crew than the narrow body fleet.

Also the temp crew are only A320 family, 747 and 777 licensed.

I guess also if a flight has to be cancelled then two 767 flights could always be combined into a 777 or 747 to clear a backlog

The only problem is they haven't combined any flights.
