BA 744: Destinations?

Sat Jan 29, 2005 3:38 am

With such a large fleet of 744s, I was wondering where they fly to. I've compiled a basic list, but was hoping some of you out there could help me with some of the African destinations that are served just once or twice a week. Here's what I have so far:


I'm sure I've missed a few, any help would be appreciated.

Widebodies flown on:A330-300,A340-300,A380-800,747-400,767-200ER,767-300ER,777-200A,777-200ER,777-200LR,777-300ER,787-9

Dubai received a 744 only in peak season, 777 is the aircraft that operates the route. The same scenario applies to CPT.

I believe that BA still operates a service to Lilongwe in Malawi with a weekly 744 via NBO or LUS?

There are also 744 services to SEZ and MRU.

Just to clarify some points from above:

CPT is a 744 year round. There is a second seasonal flights 3x a weeks as the BA43/42 that is also a 744.

This summers season will be the first that PHL does not get the 744 on either of their flights. They will have two 772.

BA is no longer flying to SEZ.

DXB does get the 744 during the peak season, as well as the 772 and 763.

This past summer i flew a British Airways 747-400 from ORD - LHR, but I have heard they are going to be all 777's (all 3 a day) this upcoming summer.

BA also use their 747-400's on their LHR-JED-KWI-LHR runs 4x per week in addition to their daily 777 dedicated service to kuwait, and 3x weekly LHR-RUH-KWI-LHR route. Although now that the Saudi routes will be dropped, I think the KWI route will go back to a single daily 777 service.

MIA gets 2 daily 744's and in the Winter 3 daily 744's (Saturdays). Talk about alot of demand for MIA-LHR, it is also flown daily by AA using 772 and double daily 772 on certain days by AA in the Winter and a mix of 744 & A346 on daily VS flight.

Yes, MIA does have a lot of demand in the Winter. The English love warm weather! Add to that many European companies having meetings and conferences in the warmer climates when it's grey and cold in Europe as well as the transferring pax from the Caribbean and Latin America. Even during the summer MIA still manages decent loads even though that's the low season for British traffic.
