Privilege Style 757 flying under BA code?

Sat Feb 18, 2017 6:24 pm

BA749 BSL-LHR arriving shortly at airport as per FR24.com.
Is this a charter similar to Titan airways? Nothing on BASource.

The same FR24.com shows that BA749 is a daily BSL-LHR flight.

TheBASource also states "The lease was due to strike action by British Airways Mixed Fleet cabin crew." under some flights, probably the reason.

To date the above aircraft have operated a total of 78 BA rotations.

Note that the in-service-with-BA dates are often one day after the above start date. This is when aircraft were required for an early morning LHR departure and were leased and flown into LHR on the previous evening.

To date the above aircraft have operated a total of 78 BA rotations. None has operated more than two rotations in a single day

Does anyone know why the the Privilege Style B767 (ECLZO) only has 1 door infront of the wing instead of 2?.

The one standard sized door at the front and back as well as two over wing hatches configuration is the more frequently seen door configuration.

I think it was only BA and a couple of other airlines who opted for 3 standard sized doors 2 infront of the wings and one at the back together with an evacuation door (bigger than the overwing hatches) behind the wing.

Most operators went for the overwing hatches - which allow for more seats.

I think that there was concern that the evacuation times of the more popular 2 overwing hatch version would be too long.

EC-LZO is ex LOT Poland.
