Just finished a shift, operated on our ex BA 763ER RR.
What my question is, when BA first got these aircraft, where did BA operate the 763ER's RR?
One of the reasons i ask this question is, that it is set up for 'international' operations, and also the PSU PAX oxygen masks last longer then our 767GE's.
Did they just operate to USA? or did they operate to Asia?

BA have always had two B767 subfleets, a long haul and a short haul. These fleets were mixed up over time so that some short haul aircraft are now operated on long haul routes. Initially this was
Short Haul : G-BNWA / B / C / D / E / K / L / S / T / V / W / X / Y / Z / G-BZHA / B / C
Long Haul : G-BNWF / G / H / I / J / M / M / O / P / R / U
For a period in 1993 onwards, G-BNWN / O and G-BNWU were allocated to BA Regional for MAN-JFK, MAN-LAX and BHX-GLA-JFK.
Mind you that's from memory. Short haul routes included CDG ( pre EuroTunnel )
Long haul was US East Coast and Canada, much as today. I do not believe recall them venturing much farther.

BA initially used the 767s on European and Middle East routes replacing the TriStars as well as a few US routes and the Regional long haul routes. They did a few US routes as well, but the 777s arrival in 1996 moved them off the Middle East services, today in that region, they are only used to JED (rumoured to be getting a 777) and DXB.

Quoting santos (Reply 1): BA B767-300ER are used to Dubai, Toronto, Tel Aviv, Philadelphia, Washington, Nassau, Montreal, Lusaka, Grand Cayman, Entebbe, Dar Es Salaam and a few other routes, but routes vary sometimes...
When first delivered, most BA 763ERs operated shorthaul routes in Europe. I remember in the late 1990s, most of their LHR-GVA flights were 763s, plus a few 752s.

BA used to fly RR-powered 767-300s to IAH, as their second flight to Heathrow, after the 744. Now they fly two 744s.
The RR 763s were always a curious sight. You just don't expect to see Rolls on a 767! The birds I saw in Houston also had four doors per side, instead of the more common two-door and two overwing exit scheme.
Do RR-powered 763s have less range than ones with Pratts or CF6s?
