Gang, noticed two British Air Open Skies 757s tonight at Newark with PW engines. I was surprised. Where did those come from? BA's own 757s were Rolls powered. Are these PW birds second hand? And from where. Or are they new. Poked around a little on the internet but couldn't find the answer

Looks like one was a Shanghai bird (LN 301) and the other was from Condor (LN 382). I have seen these two in ATL for maintenance.

They were the a/c acquired when they bought L'Avion:

They got them from the merger with L'Avion.

They're practically configured exactly opposite to the BA former 757 fleet because of the PW engines, over wing exists and the galley/ toilet layout is again different.

The ex-L'avion aircraft don't seem to be very popular in OpenSkies reviews when compared with ex-mainline.

Hmm, PW engined, winglet equipped 757s? I see a future at Delta for these birds.

If you google "open skies airfleets" or "open skies planespotters.net" you will have a guide to answer all of these type of questions.

They are both over 20 years old. I doubt DL would be that interested in them.

Indeed and every time the same question is asked it gets the same answers. The more people know about the existence of such sites, the more knowledge, useful numbers, history and images they will have at their finger tips. It's how one learns, I love sites like that, they are incredibly useful. I see no harm in pointing people in the direction where they can answer their own questions but the next one too. Airliners.net is an immense repository of images, other more spcecialist sites are much more geared towards airline fleets, past present and future, engine types, seating and the like. These questions all answered in a neat and consolidated form, I love that kinda thing.

Incidentally Mr BY738, this is the second bitchy one liner you've pitched my way in as many days, are we dating or something? You're so sweet sometimes it makes me blush although I do love the attention.
