The smaller aircraft are the 727's and 737-300's and currently 1 x 400 operated by Comair a British Airways franchise holder.

Has already switched to 777 service (or will be soon). Might operate a 744 as and when required, CPT market has it's very high seasonal peaks, although the UK-SA traffic is generally very good, year-round.

Booking engine shows the switch to 777 taking place some time in early-ish May (haven't got the exact switch date).

If you go to Kenya, you'll also see 737's in BA colours, operated by their other African franchise, Regional Airlines-can't remember whereabouts these a/c are flying to, but I think Vic Falls and Addis are two destinations (if this is the case, two BA franchises are operating in to Addis-Regional, and Bmed (with the Airbus 320).

Yeah, me again.

This is the airline they have franchised in Kenya ; pretty basic website as you'll see; even BA haven't updated their franchise webpages to include Regional air...and they don't fly to Addis, despite what I had said in my previous post.

Cheers. Thought they flew to Vic falls, but obviously not-perhaps I read of their intention to fly there from NBO....my memory is awful, as you will have noticed!
