I have heard Willie Walsh state many times that the efficiency of the B787 will allow the airline to expand into markets that were not possible before.

I know that British Airways has an expansive route network already, so I was just wondering which routes Mr Walsh might have been referring too?

Will there be more routes to smaller cities in the United States or other parts of the globe?

From first deliveries of the 787 (BA 2Q 2012-13?) the plan as of May this year (as at BA's Investor Day meeting) was that they would replace 763s on a one-for-one basis. Only four years later (starting at BA's 2Q 2016-17) for which period BA made the statement "16 787 replace 7 767s, 4 747s and 5 for growth" did any indication of expansion with the 787 come into play.

Interesting, that plan shows that all 12 A380s won't be in service until at least 2017 and no newly ordered 'heavy' aircraft until at least 2018. Very little growth until 2016 and the later B787s.

I suppose plans can change but it shows some on this forum can be over-optimistic when planning BA's future fleet!

This is something a lot of us in San Diego have been waiting for. I think with the ATI in place between AA and BA it makes San Diego much more attractive with the 787 available. I'm sure SAN will try and sway BA with a very nice deal.

SAN is pretty much a given, but Willie Walsh stated there would be 3 new North American destinations, so where are the other two going to be?

All of us have been waiting for San Diego to land an European carrier, so that'd be wonderfull news if BA does return to San Diego.

3 more North American cities???
