Britannia Airways 737 unusual routes

Tue Apr 13, 2021 9:37 pm

I travelled with Britannia in 1984, and remember the inflight mag saying they had just acquired their first 767 and that they could now fly from the UK to Banjul nonstop, without having to refuel. Presumably they had been using 737's on this route. What I would like to know is: where did these stop to refuel?

No idea about Britannia, but I know Sterling Airways of Denmark used to use their Caravelles on some incredibly long routes.

One of these tragically crashed in 1972 near Dubai while en route from Colombo to Copenhagen via Bombay, Dubai and Ankara!
