Well lately OA have been sending in a lot of 343s so I guess demand must be very high.

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.

fly Saha Air 707s daily from Tehran's downtown Mehrabad to Mashhad, Kish Island and Ahwaz

BA used to fly two daily B767's from LHR and one daily B737 from LGW pre 9/11.

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).

I thought the 767 was a regular on the Istanbul and Moscow runs, or is that my imagination?

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.

Last year at least, there were 2 daily BA services (1 757, 1 767) LHR-SVO.

Indeed the LON-ATH route is very busy and maybe one of the profitable routes that OA operates. Now that OA doesn't fly ATH-BKK-SYD-MEL, more A340s will be used for flights to London Heathrow.

capt Picard:

For the Moscow route, BA has mainly been using 757 lately for their daily evening flight

Has the BA flight to ATH increased to 3xdaily due to the end of the LGW service. If they are deploying 767s then they must be busy. ATH on BA and OA must make money?
