BA is continuing to trim its long services for 2004, while increasing frequencies to popular destinations. Looks like the slots at LHR acquired from UA are not being used to transfer more flights from LGW either.
Nairobi - 747 departure now in the morning from LHR with only a couple of hours stopover at Nairobi. Additional three weekly flights to be operated by a 767 (Evening departure from LHR).
Seychelles - drops to once weekly in April (still via Nairobi, but with 767) and ends completely in June. BA looking at franchise carrier Regional Air to operate Nairobi-Seychelles route (To be confirmed January).
Lilongwe - weekly service via Nairobi ends April.
Cape Town - returns to daily (From ten per week) for Summer season.
Riyadh - additional weekly flight (Four per week).
Hong Kong - additional three flights per week (Total of 17 weekly flights).
Beijing - increases from three to five per week.
Los Angeles - additional three flights per week (Total of 17 weekly flights).
Mexico City - additional weekly flight (Four per week).
Looks like BA aiming to increase longhaul fleet use as these changes being achieved with no additional aircraft (Though two 767s being reactivated after couple of months storage at LHR). At least no extra services to JFK this year!
