RE: Could BA Keep 767 For Charters?

No it wouldn't be worthwhile. Maintaining an operational fleet of 1 aircraft would make the costs of providing such an offering uneconomical. If <acronym title="British Airways">BA</acronym> want to be a suginificant player in any charter market it should be to maximise revenue from its existing fle...

TOM will have fewer 787s than 767s when they eventually all arrive so overall a slight wide body capacity reduction. No TOM 787s are planned to be in a different configuration so dont expect a higher density one for short / medium haul operations. (However configs can change depending on the needs o...
