Awhh, so awesome to see all those 744’s lined up... and sad too knowing they won’t be around long.

What aircraft will BA use to replace the 744 on LHR-JFK? 773?

Outstanding long haul orders are:
3 x 77W
18 x A350-1000
12 x 787-10
2 x 788
The 77Ws are to replace the three surviving non-ER 772s, between all the others 24 out of the remaining 36 744s will be replaced by 2022. BA loves fleet cascades, so brand new planes don't necessarily appear on the routes operated by the planes they are replacing. There's often a reshuffle.
JFK is likely to be one of the last routes to keep 744s, and the final ones will be around until February 2024.


Downgauging 747 to 787 and A350, unbelievable! JFK is a route that can definitely sustain upwards of 6-7x 747s every day.

Most of BA's daily JFK flights only have ~275 seats. The A351's are not too much smaller so even with a lot of J class we should only see a decrease of maybe 25 seats pee flight.
Why is flying so expensive? And why is flying well so much more?

Shows a BA 767 next to a US a320 then 3 744s in a row.

UA at FRA, DL at AMS/CDG, AC at LHR, SA/EK/EY at LHR as well...

I was thinking along the lines of as many as BA at JFK.
SA? :confused: UA and DL yes. AC and EK only have 3 tails on the ground at one point in the day. EY only has 2 on the ground. And SA only operates once daily to LHR so no for them too.
QF has 4 on the ground at LAX and JL just looking at today will probably have 6 on the ground at HNL.

Why? A parked airplane can't make money. In a perfect world all planes are scheduled to turn around within 1-2 hours.
During IROPS the airline cancels the flights and the plane never leaves LHR.

I saw 6 or 7 AC 767s/777s/787s parked/taxiing at LHR in June. Two of them were AOG IIRC though.

I believe we will see the 380 for BA at JFK down the road.

You guys are assuming zero growth at two slotted airports over the next decade.

Frequency is king. But replacing 10 flights with smaller equipment is a net loss.

All while DL and Virgin are a solid #2 and Norwegian keeps adding LGW frequencies.

And look out for JB on this route

FlightLevel BA operate the High J business heavy 744 in the main F14C86W30Y145 -thats a lower seat count than most 77w or indeed many 77e models crossing the ocean .They surprisingly short on low yield back of the bus traffic.

BAs own 77w are F14C56W44Y183 .

It is almost certain the A35J will take over the JFK services with lilttle or no losss of capacity over the Queen !

Air Canada is always impressive at LHR. It's their biggest base outside Canada. Typically there will be anywhere between 5 and 8 aircraft there at any one time. Services from Canada include: Ottawa Vancouver Montreal Toronto St John's Calgary erc

Thanks for posting that great pic of Northwest planes. It reminds me what genius that NW logo is! It's like an optical illusion intended to make you look at it two or three times: It's a N, oh and it's a compass pointing Northwest, wait.. and there's a W in there too???
Another thing I noticed (sorry to go off topic on this thread) is that the tail curves into the top of the engine nacelle on the plane in front, but goes straight in on the ones behind it. Is this an MD-11 vs. DC-10's in the background?

25 seats?! That's quite a lot of lost revenue...
To me, it will always be:
- Bombardier CSeries
- Airbus A321neoLR and A321neoXLR
- EMBRACER ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, and ERJ-195
- MITSUBUSHI MRJ

I don't think NW ever had the MD11, but they did have both the DC10-30 And DC10-40 which had differing intakes on the tail engine as seen in the picture. I think the 40 had the more bulged/curved intake.

Who knows - if by then BA moves to a newer terminal in JFK that’s capable of accepting an A380, they well may send a few of those here a day.

QF really only leaves three or four planes a day at LAX, if I remember correctly. They're there all day (except for the JFK route), which is pretty neat to see, but there's not an overwhelmingly huge number.

No but I'd say 4 QF tails at a foreign airport is as overwhelming as 4 BA tails at JFK which is how this thread was started, so it's worth a mention. Of all the airline/airport combinations mentioned in this thread the most so far is 6 with the majority at 4 or 5.

I can't find one with 5 yet, but at least here's one with 4:

On the ground means at least one of them is taxiing. You won't find 5 at the gate unless there's been a delay of some sort and someone was lucky enough to be there at that time to take a pic. That's also true for a lot of the comments on this thread. A lot of the airlines mentioned on this thread have arrivals and departures within minutes of eachother.
For example, VS15 arrives at 17:15 and VS28 departs at 17:40. It is likely that VS15 won't reach the gate before VS28 departs.

AC has an amazing slot portfolio at LHR. According to today's schedule you might see 6 on the ground.

Flight level under the current BA corporate strategy there will be fewer First class seats on each plane down from 14 to 8 the mix of C and W may well be higher than the 77w as well . It quite conceivable the revenue mix and yield combined with lower operating costs will be far better than the Queen of the sky’s today.

And you need to remember in there battle for frequency and yield BA are very careful in managing the back of the bus especially on this route where there is already over supply and price dumping via the consolidators in economy for much of the year.

The A35J combined with a new C product and slightly fewer way over priced full fare first seats may well be a winnng formula .

BA flys the Hi-J 744s to JFK. It will be interesting to see what BA does. They are very premium heavy on the route, and flooding the market with Y seats is not what they are going to do. I still think the 7810s or A35Ks might have a Hi-J subfleet for the really premium routes.

This has been an enjoyable topic with some great responses.
Was going to mention the AC presence at LHR but been beaten to it.
I've seen 7 AA aircraft at LHR at one time, 5 scattered across T3 and 2 off pier next to the Fire Station.
How many Ethiopian a/c on the ground at the same time at DUB?
I know of 2 aircraft that land close to each other early in the morning.

JFK 2x
BOS 2x
DTW 4x
ATL 3x
MSP 3x
PDX 1x
SEA 2x
SLC 1x
MCO 1x
LAX 1x (LAX is the only non daily flight; it's 4x per week)

I remember leaving NRT one night in 2009 and counting 16 DL aircraft at the gate. I remember another trip in 2006 or so when AA had ~20 flights/day from US to LHR on the 777.

Back a few years ago when QF was all 747 at LAX, it was possible to see 5-6 of them on the ground at the same time.

2x SYD(departing night)
1x SYD(departing day)
1x BNE(departing night)
1x MEL(departing night)
1x AKL(departing night)

AKL was run with the 743 until those were killed off. Everything else, and AKL at various points, was run on 744.

great thread!! I cant believe I worked at NW all those years and never noticed it was a W as well as the compass pointing NW and the N, I never saw the W. Wow, yes that truly was the best logo made possibly every (pan Am globe, up there).

So glad someone shared that photo, new screensaver

The LAX operation is impressive but QF has 5 planes on the ground at SIN each evening including 3 A380s and 2 A330s (plus another 2 flights later in the night, 1 A380 and 1 A330).

Avianca (counting Avianca Brasil) operates around 15 flights per day to MIA, many of which are present at the same dime during the middle of the day. Four of those flights are operated on A330s, while all others are A320 series.

Don't they operate a 738 there as well?

Awhh, so awesome to see all those 744’s lined up... and sad too knowing they won’t be around long.

What aircraft will BA use to replace the 744 on LHR-JFK? 773?

Outstanding long haul orders are:
3 x 77W
18 x A350-1000
12 x 787-10
2 x 788
The 77Ws are to replace the three surviving non-ER 772s, between all the others 24 out of the remaining 36 744s will be replaced by 2022. BA loves fleet cascades, so brand new planes don't necessarily appear on the routes operated by the planes they are replacing. There's often a reshuffle.
JFK is likely to be one of the last routes to keep 744s, and the final ones will be around until February 2024.


Downgauging 747 to 787 and A350, unbelievable! JFK is a route that can definitely sustain upwards of 6-7x 747s every day.


I think I am right in saying that JFK gets the recently refurbished very high J 747s that only seat 275 passengers - 100 of whom are in F and J. So they should be the last of the BA 747s flying which gives BA some time to plan an appropriately high premium configured replacement. With new B787-10/A350/B773 arriving in the next three or four years a batch of those with a high J class cabin and maybe an A380 thrown into the mix could easily provide the solution without an overall reduction in capacity.

I believe 3-4 A380s on this route daily can be easily filled to the brim.
To me, it will always be:
- Bombardier CSeries
- Airbus A321neoLR and A321neoXLR
- EMBRACER ERJ-170, ERJ-175, ERJ-190, and ERJ-195
- MITSUBUSHI MRJ

Anti narrowbody-long range-twinjet gang. Long live the A380 and 747!

Don't they operate a 738 there as well?


Yes, usually 2 a day from PER but they have replaced them with a single daily A330 for the next little while due to 737 pilot shortages.

Of course you can fill any number of A380s on LON-NYC, the question is at what yield. Currently, frequency seems to trump everything else on this route.
Nothing compares to taking off in an empty 757 with full thrust!

That sucks. I'd much rather fly big aircraft.

OT, but I forget how much better the crane livery is than the attempted modern quarter circle thing they had.

The problem is BA are about to go 1-2-1 in Business class in the next few years. That’s a lot of space you need to find in a 787/A350 to replace the 86J 747’s along with W and F, with a decent amount of Economy seats also. This won’t result in A380’s though as a. BA don’t have enough and b. T7 @ JFK can’t handle it.
223 319 320 321 333 346 359 388 733 73G 738 744 752 753 763 764 772 77E 773 77W 788 789 MD83 E145 E175 E195 RJ85 F70 DH8C DH8D AT75

I saw 5 Norwegian 787s at LAX this April. The problem is, one was parked at TBIT, while the other four were scattered about the numerous remote gates to the west of TBIT, meaning I could only get 1 787 per frame. It would have been really cool to see them side-by-side, though.

I guess the title for most tails of an airline at the same airport at the same time on a different continent goes to PA and either FRA or TXL/THF ... anyone have a picture ?

Maybe, maybe not. That's the thing about going back into the past. It's all just guessing. Were there that many PA tails on the ground at the same time compared to DL's and NW's hub at NRT? PanAm didn't really run a hub-and-spoke operation so there's no guarantee that there would have been a lot of planes on the ground at the same time. On the other hand, they did have a few 727's based there.
