BA used their own 767-300ERs to Charlotte and Pittsburgh for several seasons after the agreement with USAir ended. Plenty of photos in the database at both airports.

Looking at the database, I had forgotten BA also used 767s on Heathrow-Detroit-Houston services as a way of propping up the Detroit route towards the end also avoiding the Bermuda II restrictions preventing direct Heathrow-Houston flights.

Boof02671, BA certainly did operate their own 767 to Charlotte. As I said I operated them myself as crew. We continued after US Air operated them for us.

Re: BA 767s: Where did they fly?

BA’s 767s had two distinct configurations, long haul and European. The long haul aircraft had 1st Generation Club World beds, whilst the European ones just had club Europe seats.

My one flight in the first generation Club World was on the 767 to BWI. Most of my BA 767 flights were intra-European.

One memorable flight I had was flying from Stockholm back to Heathrow on a Friday evening. We were about to hit the deck at Heathrow on 09L, when the pilot hit the TOGA button, and up we went again. We headed north to Aylesbury at about 18,000 feet (I was watching on the moving map), and circled around, and around, and around, and around. We ended up spending more time circling around Aylesbury, than we had spent flying from Stockholm. It was my one flight where I got a little worried: the crew just mentioned a hydraulic configuration that they weren’t happy with, but I figured the length of time with we spent circling meant that whatever it was, it was pretty serious.

Eventually though, we landed without incident. Still, it was an exciting couple of hours. Amazingly, none of the passengers got stroppy: everyone was just silent.
I only turn left when boarding aircraft. Well, mostly. All right, sometimes. OH OKAY - rarely.

I took a 767 from Heathrow to Philadelphia in January 2015 (Pretty sure it was BA69) for my first solo long haul flight. I remember it looking very tatty inside!

You got lucky that day. Most of the time it was G-BNWH on the MAN-JFK route.

Does anybody know why WH was solely allocated to this route most of the time?

It was a hangar queen (allegedly). Hence it was exiled to Manchester.


Skipness1E.. just a follow on...WH has been made in key tags, by US company Planetags, they've just gone on sale past week or so.

BA456 down to Madrid on a Saturday morning was a favorite of mine in recent years. Some time in Madrid then back on the IB A340 or BA B777 later in the day. My last trip on one about 2 weeks before the 767 was finished and she was clearly tired with broken seats taped off and overhead lockers taped down. But a great flight to take very early in the morning and far more interesting than the usual A320 family since.

Clocked off about 34 flights on them in the end, mostly LHR-MAD-LHR but also
LHR-ATH-LHR
LHR-EDI-LHR
LHR-FRA-LHR
ARN-LHR

Hey there, I've been scouring the internet for a long while now to try and find a semi-comprehensive list of routes that the BA 767 flew back in it's heyday - especially long-haul ones like LHR-LAX and LHR-CPT; and I've come up with next to nothing. Would anyone have a list of routes that it flew at least semi-regularly during its time serving for BA? Thanks in advance for any replies.


This does not answer your question directly, but it’ll give you an idea of the variety of services operated by BA’s 767s.

BA took delivery of 28 767-300s. Over time BA operated the 767 from Heathrow on shorthaul and longhaul services, on BA Regional routes and from Gatwick.
The size of the shorthaul and longhaul fleets changed as individual aircraft were moved from S/H to L/H and vice versa. Over time, the L/H fleet was typically around 12-14 strong.
Shorthaul services began in February ’90. The initial shorthaul configuration was a flexible two class ClubEurope / EuroTraveller arrangement with up to 247 seats. As the shorthaul fleet grew, the 767 was operated on all high volume London-Europe services.
Longhaul services began in late 1990, with the 767 replacing TriStars on routes to AUH, BAH, RUH, DOH, JED and KRT. The initial longhaul configuration was 9F 44J 141M.
In March ’93 three 767s were allocated to BA Regional. The BAR 767s were in a two class ClubWorld / WorldTraveller configuration. They operated MAN-JFK, MAN-LAX and BHX-JFK (some via GLA). MAN-LAX was dropped at the end of the S94 season. In January ’95 two of the 767s were replaced by 757s. The remaining 767 was used on MAN-JFK.
In 94 the 767 began services to AMM, BEY and DAM.
By S95 the 767 was seen on services to PHL, SEA, YVR, EWR and CAI. Later THR was operated by the 767.
From November 95 onwards the 767 was replaced on services to the Middle East by 777s.
From January ‘96 onwards 767s were moved to LGW, and by S96 there were five 767s based there. The LGW-based 767s were in a two class 30J 183M configuration. From LGW they flew to JFK, BWI, CLT, PIT and Baku.
Longhaul flying from LHR steadily reduced, and by the end of S97 there were no L/H 767s at LHR.
In 2000 BA and Qantas introduced a co-ordinated schedule between the UK and Australia. To support the new schedules, BA first leased and later sold seven shorthaul B767s to Qantas.
The Gatwick based 767s moved back to LHR.
Of the remaining 21 767s, in time the shorthaul fleet settled at 7, with 14 operating longhaul services.
The longhaul fleet ended their service in a three class 24J 24W 144M configuration. On L/H services, the 767s flew mostly to North America, but there were other routes including Luanda.
The longhaul fleet was retried from 2013 to 2016, being replaced by the 787-8.
All 7 shorthaul 767s were retired in 2018.

My list of destinations is not meant to be exhaustive; others posters have done a good job of providing full lists.

In March ’93 three BA 767s were allocated to BA Regional (BAR). They were in a two class ClubWorld / WorldTraveller configuration.
They operated MAN-JFK, MAN-LAX and BHX-JFK (some via GLA).
MAN-LAX was dropped at the end of the S94 season.

The two B757s (G-BPEC & ‘EE) were with BAR from January ’95 to October ’98. They were configured with 18 ClubWorld and 138 WorldTraveller seats. By summer ’97 they were operating daily BHX-JFK-YYZ and GLA-JFK-BOS services.

BA277/276 MAN-LAX
BA183/182 MAN-JFK
Think BA187/186 was GLA-JFK-BOS and BA185/184 was BHX-JFK-YYZ but allowed international passenger to do MAN-JFK-YYZ, MAN-JFK-BOS, GLA-JFK-YYZ (no rights JFK-YYZ and obviously no cabotage)

Started Spring 1993 and had all but gone by September 1994. MAN-JFK soldiered on to October 2008, mostly G-TECH we affectionately knew G-BNWH.
There was a period when BA did rotate the 767 by having one operate JFK-MAN-LHR and another LHR-MAN-JFK with the MAN-LHR sectors being the regular shuttle service.


In March ’93 three BA 767s were allocated to BA Regional (BAR).

By summer ’97 they were operating daily BHX-JFK-YYZ and GLA-JFK-BOS services.
The sectors from JFK to YYZ and BOS were flown largely because between their arrival times from the UK and departure times back to the UK BA had nowhere at or near Terminal 7 to park the two 757s.
BA did have NYC-YTO traffic rights. On that sector ClubWorld was sold as 'First' because the product compared well to the the First Class offered by AC, CP and AA on their A320s, 737s and regional jets. With only one flight a day in each direction it wasn't expected to sell well, but people did do it.
As you say, BA did not have traffic rights NYC-BOS.

In '93 when three 767s were assigned to BA Regional they were put into a dedicated two class configuration. At that time, the LHR based longhaul 767s were in a three class configuration.
In January '95 the BAR 767 fleet was reduced to one, and this aircraft was dedicated to the MAN-JFK route. At first this was NWU, and then NWH.
In 96 BA assigned 767s to LGW. These were put into a two class 30J 183M configuration. Top of my head, I can't remember if this was the same two class configuration as NWH. If it was, the LGW based 76s could have been swopped with NWH, but as I recall NWH stayed at MAN until the MAN-JFK route stopped.

I think you're being a little unfair on NWH!
The LHR based longhaul and shorthaul 767 fleets had standby cover. For shorthaul, if a 767 went tech and couldn't be covered by shuffling the LHR 767s, a 757 could usually sub on a lightly loaded 767 rotation.
However, at MAN NWH was on its own. NWH didn't go tech any more or any less than any other BA 767, but when it did, with no local standby cover, the flight either took a delay while NWH was fixed, or the passengers had to wait for the LHR standby to be flown to MAN, or the passengers had to be dispersed. So, it was a big deal.

BA didn't have 767-300ER in the 1980's, they arrived from 1990 onwards.

There was a short lived MAN - LAX sometime during the mid 1990's (1997!?).
I believe it was a responce to VS who we're considering operaring the route but instead VS added a 2nd LHR - LAX and BA dropped their MAN route soon after.


In March ’93 three BA 767s were allocated to BA Regional (BAR). They operated MAN-JFK, MAN-LAX and BHX-JFK (some via GLA).
MAN-LAX was dropped at the end of the S94 season. In January ’95 two of the 767s were replaced by 757s. The remaining 767 was used on MAN-JFK.

MAN-LAX was flown because BA was lobbied hard by one or more interest groups that included MPs local to Manchester Airport who wanted to see more services from MAN. In truth, BA hoped that if the airline supported MAN, then the MPs in the area would support BA in other issues. That's politics for you. BA was willing to try, but MAN-LAX simply didn't make money.
Virgin were probably also being lobbied. However, the BA service was not flown in response to Virgin.

Tried to caught one on LHR-ARN in 2018, but it was almost £150 more expensive than SAS. So it's a big nope for a student like me. Kinda regret it now though.

Any particular reason why ARN got a regular 767 service? It's not that big of a city in terms of population compared to other European 767 destinations like FRA/AMS/FCO and its "close" enough to LHR unlike IST/LCA. I was thinking that cargo might be the reason, but they replace the 767 flights with A32X and not 787. Not sure how many cargo the A321 could carry, but definitely less than 767 or 787.

A good question. You're correct, the 767 operated to ARN to provide cargo capacity. BA World Cargo had a contract with a local mobile phone manufacturer and operated, IIRC, ARN rotations six times a week. The 767 brought the phones to LHR from where they were shipped around the world.

I can understand that, I'm very happy I managed to catch a 767 LHR-ARN before they were replaced with A32Xs, even if a SAS was a lot cheaper… Flying a wide body within Europe feels a bit special. And I liked seeing them at ARN, it's always interesting to see something else than just A320s and 737s!

BA flew the 767 during the winter season in the late 90s for a couple of years between LHR and YVR before they went to the 744 during the summer and the 742 in the winter. Pretty sure that they used the 767 for LHR-YYC as well for awhile in the last few years. DUS and CGN were also regular 767 destinations.

This thread just demonstrates how flexible aircraft can be. I flew BA 767s on routes as short as LHR-MAN and CDG but also to TLV and ACC. I was also scheduled to fly all the way to DAR on a 767 but I had to cancel the trip and shortly after BA cancelled the route so I never got to go that far.

The girl at my local Telia store once offered me that phone (I'm 27 btw), but I can't remember the brand. Maybe one of the Swedes here could help?


Could be Doro? I have no idea where those are made though.

O yeah, I totally forgot about the ATP!! I was actually quite surprised that Sweden has a lot of unique aircraft flying around. I also missed the chance to fly with the 736. But at least I managed to catch a ride with the 73G, which is quite rare in SE Asia. As for the 767, my only hope now is to fly with NH/JL on their CGK-NRT/HND. If I'm lucky, it could cost the same as that LHR-ARN 767 flight!

As for the phone, you got it right! I did a Google search on that brand and the company's is based in Lund. They also sell their products and have an elderly response unit in the UK, so it must be them. Poor Doro phones, now they must squeezed inside an A32S cargo hold.

I almost bought that one in desperation when my "tropical" phone couldn't keep up with the freezing Norrland's winter and died suddenly. Thank God my friend lent me her old phone so I could save up a bit and get a more age appropriate one lol!!

I know the feeling! While I managed to catch the 767, my plan to fly a BAe ATP failed when Nextjet suddenly went under…

At least there are films of the 767 at ARN!

There are a couple of them. I've flown the 736 a number of times, and to be honest it is just a short 737. It was a bit fun to sit in the last row and still be almost at the wing, but when looking at it objectively it is not that special. There are a number of trip reports on youtube though with it.

Regarding the 767, I think TUI still has a few, but who knows how long they will be part of their fleeet. As for odd aircraft still flying in Sweden, Amapola uses Fokker 50s, those are pretty rare by know. And who knows for how long the Saab 340s will be around?

IIRC, London to Fukuoka via Anchorage were operated by the 767 for a period of time around 1991.

Tried to caught one on LHR-ARN in 2018, but it was almost £150 more expensive than SAS. So it's a big nope for a student like me. Kinda regret it now though.


I can understand that, I'm very happy I managed to catch a 767 LHR-ARN before they were replaced with A32Xs, even if a SAS was a lot cheaper… Flying a wide body within Europe feels a bit special. And I liked seeing them at ARN, it's always interesting to see something else than just A320s and 737s!

Any particular reason why ARN got a regular 767 service? It's not that big of a city in terms of population compared to other European 767 destinations like FRA/AMS/FCO and its "close" enough to LHR unlike IST/LCA. I was thinking that cargo might be the reason, but they replace the 767 flights with A32X and not 787. Not sure how many cargo the A321 could carry, but definitely less than 767 or 787.


A good question. You're correct, the 767 operated to ARN to provide cargo capacity. BA World Cargo had a contract with a local mobile phone manufacturer and operated, IIRC, ARN rotations six times a week. The 767 brought the phones to LHR from where they were shipped around the world.

So did they loose the contract? Or does those phones can fit nicely inside A32X belly?

Hello.
BA World Cargo is now part of IAG World Cargo. I don't know if IAGWC still has the contract.
DHL operate services for BA into LHR using A300s and B757s where space is needed. If DHL are operating ARN-LHR it could be that IAGWC still has the contract.
I knew that the 767 was on the route to carry phones. Back then I may have known which phone company it was, but if I did I can't remember now.

The Boeing 767 began its service in the British Airways fleet operating short domestic routes to train staff and show off the aircraft to the captive public. From there, the type started to operate inter-Europe routes such as London – Amsterdam, Athens, Rome, Frankfurt, Stockholm, and Istanbul.

The 767 was used on the Gatwick to Dhahran (later Dammam) route in the 90s.
I also remember that sometime in the 2010s BA would schedule the 767 into DXB from LHR. Sometimes they would have 4 flights into Dubai during the winter schedule and the 1400 flight out of Dubai was a 767.

Most A.netters know this but before Covid it was triple daily, 1 A35K, 1 Super Hi J and 1 4-class 772.

BA106/107: Midday flight. Super Hi J 744 then inaugural A350-1000 route. Downgauged to 3-class 772 for W20, switched to 787-9 on January 1.
BA104/105: 8:00 pm redeye. Generally 4-class 772.
BA108/109: 10:00 pm redeye. Mix of 4-class 772 and SHJ. Cancelled for W20.

I didn't know BA had a fourth frequency to Dubai. What was the flight number? I do know that a 767 was used to DXB until...2013ish? The route has also seen 772A (G-ZZZA-C) which were purpose-built for Persian Gulf routes.

Hey guys,
I flew Stockholm-Heathrow on BA 767 in December 1995. A great flight.
I then flew on another, differently configured BA 767 Heathrow-Vancouver in January 1996 on another great flight before transferring to a decrepit Canadian DC-10 for Vancouver-Honolulu with THE worst FAs onboard. The Canadian FAs made the BA ones look like superheroes in comparison. Sadly it ended up being my one and only DC-10 flight.
The final connecting Honolulu-Sydney flight thankfully was business class on a QF 747-300....
Take care,
Bunumuring

Flown this one before. Was always interesting to see them load containers of spare parts and wheels in NAS for the GCM leg, them see them offload that container on the return into NAS from GCM.
