Re: British Airways and the 767

I think my only BA 767 flights were when my flight from Madrid got cancelled due to the French ATC strike earlier this year, and a previous TLV flight. I might be wrong on the TLV flight, I know I have flown the 777 from TLV, but I thought one flight to TLV was on the 767. Yes, totally correct, the...

As a frequent sufferer in the past of the BA's "cargo" flights LHR<>MAD on 767, the sooner they are gone, the better. Noisy, uncomfortable and outdated. Cant wait for the farewell. Outdated and noisy yes, comfortable? I’d say much more than the Airbus family. Seat pitch on the 76 is 33” a...

BA has the monopoly and can dump capacity on these routes with the 76, cheaper fares and will run them out in 12 months or sooner.
