but I think British Airways used to fly BHX-JFK-YYZ and GLA-JFK in the early/mid 1990s.

No NO NO ....... a Canadian company called Odyssey must be close - around 1991 I think if not before. Also Air Transat around the same time if I recall.
|Quoting YYZYYT (Reply 17):|
have a specifgic recolleciton of standing in a departure lounge in Gatwick, early September of 1990, looking at a Cdn flagged 757, boarding beside my flight (Canadian Airlines 767). I remember noting the comparative size of the forward fuselage and engines... I can't recall whether it was Odessy or Nationair, but I'm sure it was one of them.
Oddessy was in business from 1988 or so, so first trans Atlantic 757 service may have been even before then.
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 13):
my guess (and its only a guess) is that by the early 1990s, the 757 was a common sight on holiday flights from Europe to the US (especially on UK regional airport routes to the Orlando area.)
|Quoting YYZYYT (Reply 21):|
In fact, here's a photo - Odessey operating a flight For Nationair, LGW Sept 13, 1990..

I recall being on a BA flight JFK-BMX in late September 1995 on a 757.
|Quoting Richierich (Reply 25):|
It sounds like the BA flights were some the earliest if not the first to be used trans-Atlantic. It used to be cool to see a BA 757, 767, 777 and a 747 all parked at T7 in JFK (as well as the much lamented Concorde!).

What about ATA/TZ they use to fly them from DTW to FRA for charter flights for the company I use to work for.
|Quoting Dutchjet (Reply 12):|
As for charter service and holiday flights, many European based airlines used the 757s on routes to the US and the caribbean over the years, some involving stops in NewFoundland or in Bangor.
