BA - B757

Sun May 20, 2001 6:05 pm

A few years ago, British Airways used to operate two B757 Extended Range a/c on flights from Birmingham and Glasgow to JFK, which were configured with Club World and World Traveller seats. Anybody any ideas on how many passengers these a/c took compared to BA's regular short haul 757's?

The two ER's (G-BPEC/BPEE) had got 162 seats (C20 Y142).
"Regular" BA 752s have 180 seats, BA's charter aircraft have 195 seats, some even 201. [JMC's 752 have 235 seats!!!]

Thanks! I must say, I'm surprised. I knew it would be less than 200 but I didn't think as low as 162 though as it almost seems non-profitable to operate such a low amount of seats to a city like New York.

Hey Icebud,

You could fly a B757 across the Atlantic with as few seats as you liked, and still make a profit-it all depends on how much you charge for each seat-BA charge extraordinarily high prices in Club or First Class-which is why seat numbers overall are quite low.

BTW, my father flew LHR-MAD rtn with BA in Club Europe class last month. Ticket cost=750+ pounds!!  Wow!
Fortunately, his Company was paying.
