PTV's Vs BA 763 Fleet

Mon Nov 28, 2005 7:23 pm

Hello All,
As part of my working in BAWC I'm futured to be sent to LGW for some dangerous goods course.
My question is about the flight from / to LHR from TLV, Wgich registrations of the current serving TLV 763 Fleet is equipped with PTV's?
In Know about G-bnwt, G-bnwo, G-bnwn and G-bnwm. any more?

That's it, sound silly, I know, but it's my first time flying  Smile

Great Day All.
Best Regards,
Eldad.

All the Longhaul configured 767's at Heathrow and therefore operating the TLV route are now equipped with PTV's. So unless you get changed onto a Shorthaul 767 which is unlikely, you will have them on your flight.

I just flew BA LHR-DAR last week on the refurbished 767 and loved it!.. it just looks and feels like a new plane (except for the old style overhead compartments.)
The PTVs are good with a good selection of channels.
I like that they have foot rest in coach, but wasn't too happy with the 31' pitch. I am used to seating in exit rows in coach, but couldnt get it on BA.
The service was very good and I was surprised that BA still has extra amenities in coach, like tooth paste/brush, socks, free wine, etc. ( ..surprised because I connected in LHR from no-frills AA)
go to the entertainment guide at BA.com. choose your flight from the drop down list. IF you see a bunch of movies listed, you are getting the new 767.
enjoy!

does someone have a picture of a rifurbished BA 767 cabin?
By the way, I dont like the old style overhead compartments of the 767.Why didn't they go for the 777 interior style?

Maybe it has something to do with the fact the 767 was being built before the 777?  Yeah sure

Yes, you will ( bar any changes) get a newly configured L/H 767, all the L/H LHR 767's are now dusked, and now the conversion of the 4 S/H aircrafts is underway, with the last L/H 767 ( the MAN aircraft) is due to be operating by mid JAN ( 12th I believe)  Smile, hope you enjoy BA S/T  Smile
