BA's Dom. And Intl' 767's

Tue Apr 17, 2007 6:55 am

Are there any differences between the international and domestic 767's for BA, i am hoping to book a flight to IST from LHR and get on the 767.

Last i heard, some of the 767's were gettting upgraded with PVT's, is that true?


Thanks

BA's longhaul 767's have upgraded cabins and flat beds in Club World (no first).

The european fleet of 767's have overhead monitor IFE systems rather than PTV's

The 767's used on short-haul are configured with the usual short haul 'convertible' seats and can accommodate a max of 252. In Club Europe the config is 2 x 2 x 2 and in Euro Traveller it is 2 x 3 x 2. There are overhead monitors on the shorthaul aircraft but the only routes movies are played are DME/ATH/IST/LCA. Apart from these destinations the 767 flies to most other european destinations at some point in the annual timetable. Most notably FRA, ARN, LIS, BCN and MAD.

The long haul 767's have 189 seats. 24 Club World flat beds (config 2 x 2 x 2), 24 seats in World Traveller Plus (2 x 2 x 2) and 141 seats in World Traveller (2 x 3 x 2). All seats have PTV's and nearly the entire 767 fleet is now AVOD enabled.

You probably meant European short haul and long haul (including all destination outside Europe). I flew them BUD-LHR and BCN-LHR, business and economy both with standard leather seats like the ones you find in short haul narrow bodies. I don't think they fly 767s within the UK. Am I wrong?

They end up on the odd domestic turn, but I don't think they schedule them at this point.

They used to fly quite reguarly on the morning and evening MAN/GLA/EDI shuttles, but as N1120A said, they are not scheduled anymore for this but you might see them on the odd run if your lucky!

The 767's fly ad-hoc on all BA short haul routes. If an aircraft goes tech and the only spare aircraft is a 767, they will use it.

An irregular domestic use is on (one of the morning) LHR-MAN and MAN-LHR shuttle flights. From time to time a long haul configured 763 is used. The MAN-LHR service is operated by the 763 that had previously been operating the MAN-JFK-MAN rotation and the LHR-MAN service is operated by the aircraft that will replace it on the trans-Atlantic service for the following days or weeks.

Yep! I was lucky enough to fly on a BA 767 in 2005, MAN-LHR. The previous flight to mine was cancelled, so BA sent up a 767 to cater for those pax who's flight was cancelled. And I was even lucky enough to get one of the final remaining world tails!
