Seems a few things emerging about BA
's longhaul plans over the coming months. I know various things have been mentioned elsewhere but thought I'd provide a summary on one thread.
goes from 14 to 16 weekly from 4th December with an additional two 747-400 services on a Monday and Saturday (BA205/BA204). This seems to be for winter only.
goes from daily to twelve times weekly, as of 2nd November, all 747-400 operated. Monday and Sunday are the two days that see only one flight. (Additional flights are BA043/BA042). Again, winter only.

Again, Winter only.
An additional LHR
flight is added from Monday 13th December, giving a twice weekly 767-300 operated service, the other flight being on a Sunday. (Flights BA253/BA252). Again, Winter only.

-BDA goes to a summer frequency of five times weekly, with a four class 777 operating Wednesdays and Fridays excepeted.
[Edit] Also, depending on the outcome of the CAA convened meeting on 17th Novemebr, involving BA, BD and VS, we may see BA adding additional frequencies/destinations to India, with an additional seven weekly flights allowed to be added in Winter 04, Summer 05 and Winter 05, giving a total maximum of 40 flights per week between the UK and India.
