BA have also been using at least one EI A320 out of LHR.
Having said that Eurowings are using the widest range of different aircraft at the moment (I've seen Adria and CSA A319s coming into LHR on their flights).
Flown in: A21N,A30B,A306,A310,A319,A320,A321,A332,A333,A343,A346,A359,A388,BA11,BU31,(..55 more types..),VC10,WESX

BA using Germania aircraft.

Mon Mar 05, 2018 10:32 am

I note that BA have been using a A319 for LGW ops since 8th Feb, are these BA crewed? And what about Club Europe customers, what do they get, not that the BA offering is that good anyway, perhaps a refund.
you don't get a second chance to make a first impression!

Well they will still block the middle seat in Club Europe and it’s standard economy seat pitch so not really any different. Not sure how they do meals/ but on board for the leased aircraft but hardly noticeable for most I’d imagine.

Not sure of LGW but the EI Westlease at LHR does not have Club Europe so all pax receive drinks and snacks.

On a semi-related note - I was on the DLR going past LCY last Tuesday evening, and I saw an E-jet (not sure if it was an E170 or E190 as I was too far away and it was dark) that was all-white with BA titles but no Chatham Dockyard tail, and I think also no blue. Any clue what it was?
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

Yep. Found it. Delivered to BA in December, thus explaining the temporary titles.

There’s also been a Neos 738, Titan 734 and A320 operating the past week or so from LGW
I love the feel of a Go Around in the morning

These leases are to allow BA to operate the ex ZB LGW slots as they don’t have enough BA aircraft currently to use the slots and they are use them or loose them.

The 734 is ex-BA G-DOCT and is scheduled to at LGW until September/October operating for BA after which is will converted to a freighter for Titan.

Ironic that is should end up back at LGW having been retired to the desert by BA a couple of years ago!
It's nice to fly with friends
