I think that BA have changed the aircraft they use from London to Athens from 757 to 767.I saw that on a reservation that i wanted to do.The used to have 767's prior to sep.11.Can anyone confirm about the change or say if they are doing this for all flights to Athens?

London to Athens is a major route. When I was a travel agent (here we go again...) that was probably the single route I booked the most seats. Whatever else happened each day, I always booked a dozen seats, probably 60% Olympic 40% BA (we had better fares with OA). BA have always used a mix of 757s and 767s.
As a rule of thumb, the main European routes BA deploy 767s on are: Brussels (one or two a day; mostly 757s), Nice, Frankfurt (see BRU), Athens and Cyprus. Paris was all 767s til the Chunnel opened.

Was full both flights I flew to athens last week, I was wondering when they'd change back to the 767, but am glad we got the 757 (although the flight back we ended up in a little problem with a lack of fuel).

LON-ATH is a busy route. In fact, this past Friday, BA 2640 (one of the last LGW-ATH flights) operated as a 777-200. BA has two daily flights using a mix of 767s and 757s (767 operates on TuWe) and OA has two dailies with 340s and A300s.
