BA @ IAH

Sun Aug 20, 2000 5:47 pm

Hello,

I would be interested to track down the history of BA operations at Houston.

Could anyone help me with some old timetables to see when they switched aircraft and upgraded frequencies please?

Thank you,

Best regards,

The current status in ba operations at IAH is that each day on Boeing 747-400 departs London to IAH.
Is this what you were looking for?

 

Are you aa ba fan?

British Airway's Houston operations started in 1987 as a result of their takeover of British Caledonian, as did their service to Atlanta and Dallas among others. B Cal used DC-10-30s on these flights, and so did British Airways for most of the time they still had DC-10s in service before they began to upgrade the flights to B747/777 aircraft.

Summer 1992 - DC-10-30 Daily
Summer 1993 - B747-200 Daily
Summer 1996 - DC-10-30 Daily
Summer 1997 - B747-200 6x Weekly B747-400 1x Weekly
Winter 1997/8 - B747-200 Daily (Up to 5/Feb/98)
Winter 1997/8 - B747-400 Daily (From 6/Feb/98)
Summer 1998 - B777-200 Daily
Winter 1998/9 - B747-400 Daily
Summer 1999 (to present) - B747-400 Daily

BA didn't fly the 777 here in summer of 98...in fact we've never had a 777 service from them. The 777s were on schedules for a while but ended up never coming- the 744 came early instead. They went from DC-10 to 742 to 744 from 95 to 98. In October they will go to nine weekly frequencies with seven 744 and two 777.
