B767-300ER's only.

They are used transatlantic as well as intra-europe.

Yes, British Airways only operates RR RB211-powered 767-300ER's/ They are deployed mostly on London-Southern Europe routes like LHR-FCO, and LHR-MXP. They are also used (or at least used to be) on some thinner Middle East routes. They also fly LGW-JFK, and MAN-JFK. They used to operate LGW-PIT, and I think are also on LGW-BWI. They have also been used on LHR-VIE, and last summer some flights to EDI, GLA, and MAN were operated by these 767's.

8 of them are en route to being shipped of to QANTAS, some are already there, due to the increased competition by Impulse and Virgin. I think they have around 20 now.

hi,

they only have the B767-300, which flies to new york from manchester, and from london on certain flights, services to pitsburg have been discontinued I think, coz its not there on the BA timetable, 767s also used on some african flights, and one to atlanta daily for the summer in addition to the B777...it also used to ATH, VCE, PRA...

I shall be flying in one on September1st from LHR to MAD. They used to be used on the LHR-AUH-BAH sector. That was one of their Middle Eastern deployments.

Interesting, I didn't know those 767s are ERs.

Last summer I was on one of them on the early afternoon flight LHR to Budapest. It was about 90% full. Much more comfortable than the BA 742s.

What about LHR to FRA! I think that BA uses the B763 on that route?

Of course you're right Boeing 727.

I Understand that 777s will be used permanently to BWI starting in October replacing the 763. Any confirmation on that? Gregg

What about Charlotte, NC? I thought I saw a BA 767 there a couple of times.

Hi! Just to let you know that LIS is also served with BA 767-300ER's. I had my taste with that bird on 98/08/29 flying from JFK to LGW - G-BNWR with "Chelsea Rose" I know that latter was changed to the "Union Jack" regular tail. I can tell that was a very pleasant and smoth flight and I was happy with the plane! My travelling happened only 3 days earlier than the SR111 crash on the same route. Suddenly I refelected a lot on that flight and those who perished on the same route I was flying!

I flew on a BA 767 in early 97 on the LGW-PIT route when BA was still in good terms with USAir. It was about 30% full and I had a whole 3 seats to myself - certainly enjoyed the ride!
I've flown on 9V-SPK.

Did I see a B767 at Schipol in Amsterdam? Also, Ex NWA, I live in Greensboro, NC [GSO] about an hour or an hour-and-half north of CLT. BA uses a 777 into Charlotte now.

Thanks,
Jeb!
