It's not too bad, but I think it does look a little bare.

I have had this question in mind: many B767s operating today have winglets on their aircraft to improve aircraft performance and save fuel. When do you think British Airways will have them on their B763s? Plus, is there any chance that BA will revive its World Tails liveries painted before on their B747s and B757s?

And... British Airways B767-300ER (reg. G-BNWC)

BA wanted to install winglets to it's 767s, they said so in 2010. But the problem is that BA is pretty much the only airline that has RR engines on their 767s for which the winglets have never been certified. They asked Boeing and RR to push for a certification, but the silence about this subject since 2010 probably means that it's never going to happen.

Oh wow. Very interesting. If that's the case, will the upcoming 787s be a suitable replacement to BA's 763ER fleet, and if so, what aircraft type would be used on its European flights that use the 767 today?

It appears that the 787s will at first only be replacing the Long Haul 767s, the short haul 767 won't be replaced yet.

The replacement of the short haul 767s that will happen eventually of course probably depends on Heathrow's capacity situation. If the airport will get a new runway that increases the total capacity enough that the slot restrictions are lifted the 767s will probably be replaced by narrow bodies like the A321. If not it's a real probability that we will see the 787 also on BA's European routes.

The answer will probably be no. It would be cool though to see the liveries again.

Hopefully, I can see this aircraft operate to more destinations in the US, including SFO. But, I'm very content to see BA doing 2x B744 on its LHR-SFO service daily.

British Airways announced that it will start new direct flights from London-Heathrow to Austin, Texas.

British Airways Shows Austin Prowess

Quote:
British Airways is to be the only airline to offer direct flights from London to Austin in Texas from 2014.

Starting in early March 2014 with five flights a week before moving to daily flights on May 5, the airline’s brand new Boeing 787 Dreamliner with its three-cabin layout, will serve the route to the Texan capital. Austin is now featuring in the British Airways sale, which runs until September 24, with prices starting from £3,609 in Club World (business class), £891 return in World Traveller Plus (premium economy) and £511 return in World Traveller (economy).



Lynne Embleton, British Airways’ director of strategy, said: “The addition of the Airbus A380s and Boeing 787 Dreamliners to our fleet enables us to start new routes and increase services to a number of our destinations.”

“We’re excited to be the only airline offering direct flights from London to Austin. We believe it will prove very popular with both business and leisure customers and will be our third route to Texas, after Houston and Dallas.

“In the pioneering spirit of the Lone Star state, we are flying there in one of the world’s most advanced aircraft, the 787, to encourage more business with the scores of hi-tech businesses based in Austin’s ‘Silicon Hills’”.

The summer 2014 schedule, which starts from March 30, 2014, will see a number of increases in long-haul flying to a variety of destinations.

The Austin service is excellent news and we can probably expect at least another one or two more new destinations as they roll out details of their S14 schedule. Austin has been launched early because it starts in early March for the South by South West festival.

I agree with it is time for a change. I was hoping they would extend the livery on to the body a little more and have a bigger one world logo by the door. Also a bigger IBERIA wording too.

I agree, a more prominent OneWorld emblem would have been good. I am not sure what the travelling public in Spain make of Iberia right now. Certainly, IAG need to tread carefully with Iberia's unions as they seem to seize on any opportunity to blame "the British" for their airline's woes. Witness the BA A380 proving flights moving from MAD to FRA.

I'm curious about that issue. There are several versions about it, none coincidental at all.
