Does anybody know if British Airways flies the 777-200ER to any Asian destination and what destinations are they?

They used to fly the B777s 5 times weekly to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia back in 2000 and 2001 before they suspended their services in March 2001. If I am not mistaken, that was BA's longest B777 route, a distance of about 6500 miles.

On this site they are showing some BA009 flights to SYD with B777.

BA use the 777 on one of the two daily flights to Tokyo

They also use it on all 4 weekly flights to Beijing.

I think a while ago they used to fly an additional 4 weekly flights to BKK with the 777.

They definitely fly the B777 to Beijing. The route to Tokyo is not daily operated by B777 and so you would have to look at the schedule. Thats about it to Asia but maybe after more deliveries they will increase services to Asia and use the B777 instead of Jumbos. They could use the B777 to serve new routes if and when they try them?

I would have thought the trunk routes - Singapore, Hong Kong, Sydney -would require the largest possible aircraft at all times?

I've noticed they tend to deploy the 777 in force on the longer, quieter runs - Argentina, Brazil, Angola, China, US southwest, Saudi, Kuwait....

A340-Fan - interestingly your link also shows that BA0033 left for Kuala Lumpur on 3/1/2003 with a Boeing 737 equipment. I doubt that was true... especially when BA left KUL in 2001 and the 737-400 would not have the range capabilities NOR the capacity!!!

Just returned on MH8 yesterday and the flight was 20 overbooked.
