WOW…. Truly cat amongst the pigeons….Jump to post
Probably my favourite seats on the 747’s were either 64A or K on the BA birds...
Can’t think of a better one, except the JS.
AA has full staff at LHR, even ramp. Anyone please add anything I'm missing and correct me some of my info may be pre COVID Close...... AA has absolutely everybody at LHR including AMT ( divert station). The only part they are missing is the underwing operation, of unloading/loading, pushing and To...Jump to post
Looks like BA had to give them LHR slots for EDI and ABZ services https://www.acl-uk.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/BA_BE_S21_27April21.pdf WOW... So if I have read that right, BA have had to give a defunct airline some domestic slots ..? God help anyone who trusts their money with this new crowd.Jump to post

Great trip report
An enthusiast flight on that -100 very nearly happened a couple of years back, a friend of mine was signed up for it- very expensive though. As for Sam, some of his actions at Mehrabad (Tehran's domestic airport) probably didn't earn him any favours Never had any trouble at Mehrabad, infact totally...Jump to post
Years ago, when everyone was popping down to Iran to fly on the Saha 707’s ( read Iranian Air Force) there was a strong rumour that the 747’s were to take over some of the domestic flights when the 707’s were pulled from service. As we all know now, that never happened , and Saha ended up flying a c...Jump to post
Yep, check out the link
Think the last ever 777-300ER is just about to roll off the FAL. Can’t remember if it’s a KL or SU frame.
Line to be kept open with 777F’s .
Pretty sure this was originally configured for TCS flying tours around the world. Configured around 56 business seats, unsure if they were the lie flat type tho’ but expect they were. EDIT.... A little research on the Titan website, and TCS website shows that when TCS used the 757, it was in a 12 ro...Jump to post
G-LINK was the S61 that operated the LGW- LHR route. One way walk up fare was £8 iirc, As others have mentioned, the M25 wasn’t complete at that stage, so the road route took a little while, approx 2-2.5 hours by the famous Green Line 727 coach. B Cal helicopters always operated the route as far as ...Jump to post
To me STR to UK has to be Brexit related, it doesn't make economic sense in normal times. It's not Brexit related, as has been explained. BA is doing JNB-LHR-STR with car parts and STR-LHR-ATL with car parts. Nothing to do with Brexit. Sorry GCT64 ..... this is ABSOLUTELY BREXIT related !!!!! All U...Jump to post
Wow.... like it a lot. Someone has spent a fair bit of money to make that 747 into a cafe along with the move. Like the way they set up it, like the way it’s stripped back to the outer frame and the ribs and spars are showing. Like the way it’s set out inside. A good job all over. Hope they have suc...Jump to post

The 777-300ER are only 4 airplanes, they could retire 4 777-200Er. Believe the 351’s & 77W’s were original 744 replacements... Current times made the Queen disappear quicker than we would have hoped, but the delivery’s continued. As for the 781’s, BA don’t need the capacity or the headache of w...Jump to post
This could further be helped in 10+ years by the completion of the M17
BA doesn't even name it's aircraft any more .
A trio of Allegiant MD-83s departed BHM today for BYH (N419NV, N423NV, N881GA), where they'll get C checks before getting converted.

I remember years ago Britannia Airways here in the UK was a major Boeing 737-200 operator and if I remember rightly, they had two Boeing 737-200C's G-AXNA and G-AXNB which was both cargo convertible, both sadly now long gone.

From my foggy memory, IR bought 2 x 747-286B(M) , but never actually used them as combi’s. They were always in full pax configuration. Also KU bought a 747-469M which was also never used in combi config, but did have a hospital theatre between doors 4L/R & door 5L/R. Centre section only, the out...Jump to post
N965UW, re : the CO/UA regs
The CO birds are the numerical ones, and UA , obviously , the UA ones... all preserver stuff.
Since merger, I believe that they’ve followed the CO ideal, just going for the numbers., but they will be in sequence...( last 3 digits anyway)
