Searched for this topic, but couldn't find the answers. Was wondering if anyone had any insight to BAs new 787 and what routes it will be flying?

Specifically interested if it will be used to replace the 777-200s without First used down to Latin America?

No. The B787-8 will replace long haul B767-300 one for one.
No new routes next year.

I would've thought that SAN would be a 787 at least during the winter months but if not, that means traffic and cargo yields are healthy enough to keep the IGW 777's flying there, nice!

They will be replacing the 767s in the main.

Three or four maximum 788 may be delivered during Winter 2013.

Remaining 788 orders through 2014 and 2015 - total just 8 frames !

Subject to test programme for a model yet to be made the 789 models are scheduled 2015-2017 and beyond with 16 + frames.

You will see them where ever the 767 is used at the moment.

It would make total sense if 10x 747 turned into 7x 747 (or 77W or 772) and 7x 787.

Ryanair have no slots or indeed desire to operate in to Heathrow

Its a complex deal around current Aer Lingus slot holdings in event Ryanair are successful in their take over attempt of the Shamrock.

The take over is far from inevitable - The Dáil and Taoiseach seem set against it

This would also help with the 747 retirement at BA. They could do 5x 747, 7x 787, and 7x 77W if they needed different capacities for different days.

Unlikely. As has already been stated BA have announced that they will replace their 763s and not any 772s with the 787s. This means they will almost certainly first enter service on one or more of the following long haul 763 destinations::

BWI, DAR, DME, EBB, FNA/ROB, JED, LUN, NAS/GCM, PHL, YUL, YYC or YYZ

Conjecture that the BA 787 will be used to start new routes is also likely to be just that,namely conjecture.

Friend that works for BA in YYC said he heard rumors of LHR-YYC very soon after 787 deliveries start. Loads have been very strong with sold out flights almost daily. this would make a great strong route for the 787 with heavy loads to replace the 763 currently flying the route daily.

If they replace the 767 one-to-one, they will. BA still operates the 767 into, say, FRA and CDG.

I think the 767 replacement refers to the long-haul 767s (used to Africa and a few other places) rather than to the European 767s configured with Club Europe rather than Club World...doubt we will be seeing any 787 in regular service within Europe

Initially the 787 will replace those Longhaul configured 767s that are not having a cabin refresh. They will almost certainly fly to the exact same places that are currently served by Longhaul 767s as mentioned earlier.

As for shorthaul operation - it would only be for adhoc flights, much like the 777s and 747s sometimes do at the moment.

If they replace the 767 one-to-one, they will. BA still operates the 767 into, say, FRA and CDG.

The current announced plans show sixteen 787s delivered by end 2015 and thirteen out of fourteen long haul 763s retired by the same date. So it looks like an almost one-for-one replacement. See Chart 17 here:

http://media.corporate-ir.net/media_...Capital%20Markets%20Day%202011.pdf

In this chart the seven short haul configured 763s are still in service and are hidden in the "Short haul - Other" numbers. However it is likely that some short haul routes will be flown very early in the life of BA;s 787s to maximise the number of rotations during flight crew training.

So current published plans are for BA to operate their short-haul 767 fleet at least into 2016. Here it is worth noting that these aircraft are currently being refurbished. Four aircraft are back in service after refurbishment, one is currently undergoing refurbishment and three are still flying with their old cabins awaiting their new cabins.

It is also worth noting that the BA short haul fleet includes the two oldest 763s in BA;s fleet but, more relevantly, five of their six youngest aircraft:

G-BNWA delivered May '89. 50,811 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BNWB delivered Nov '89. 49,541 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BNWX delivered Mar '94. 47,948 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BNWZ delivered Feb '97. 36,070 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BZHA delivered May '98. 34.330 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BZHB delivered May '98. 34.133 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

G-BZHC delivered Jun '98. 34.951 hrs as at 31 Dec 2011

So four are still relatively young. Further being amongst the very few RR powered 763s, their market value is probably low particularly when compared to their operational value. But the final fate of QF's RR 763, VH-ZXB, (formerly G-BNWF with BA) that they retired on 1 December and is now parked at ROW might give further clues.

I always love your pro-PDX posts, I'd be way happy to see BA at PDX, but with up to 2x daily 744 or 777 to SEA, and a great connection partnership with AS, I doubt BA will look at PDX for a while longer. I have heard the rumor too, but if BA had wanted to come here, they would have tried a 767 at some point, or as a tag from YVR or SEA. I think LH's departure shows that PDX is just not big enough to keep multiple daily Europe flights, too bad as well, PDX is an awesome facility.

If this ULH route ever happens, I'd expect HA with their A350's or VS with whatever they get next with ULH capacity. The thought is ULH leisure routes do not work well, even with a lower fuel burn, they still would be hard to remain profitable.

This plan is notable for two things, firstly the 2015 figures for the 747 and 767 have a box round them mentioning operational flexibility, in simple terms some could have their life extended if the market picks up and slots are available.

the other thing is that this was a November 2011 presentation just before the possibility of buying BMI, this probably makes quite a difference, one aspect being that BA now operate more A320 series planes in 2012 than the projection for 2015 !

It also means that some could have their life shortened if the market fails to meet expectations by implementing early retirements.

This is the sort of flexibility that is required when forecasting the overall economic situation four years out is so very, very difficult. It is not therefore surprising that the presentation also additionally says on Chart 18:

"Further flexibility possible with contractual ability to defer new deliveries"

On this chart it also presents the median forecast position together with both optimistic and pessimistic forecasts for the combined BA and IB fleet growth, Here it shows a base line "fleet growth" of around 14 per cent, This does not jibe with the base line aircraft fleet growth of 8 per cent shown on Chart 17. This may be because the "fleet growth" figure could be passenger seats and not aircraft numbers.

Chart 18 also shows an optimistic growth scenario of about 31 per cent and a pessimistic contraction of 12 per cent. I take this to mean that looking forward IAG has the flexibility to cope with anything between a 31 per cent growth and a 12 per cent decline in business (presumably excluding the impact of BD) over the period from the fourth quarter of 2011 to the end of 2015. So the box around the 747 and 767 (and the IB A330/340) aircraft needs to be viewed with this in mind and the possibility of early and postponed retirements, lease extensions and deferral of new aircraft deliveries.
