BA3 makes no sense versus a 747 from LHR if you have to land somewhere to refuel before the transatlantic leg but can't do US immigration at the same stage.

In terms of loads I was on BA1 last Monday and it had 20 pax which is on the low side in my experience. BA2 on Thursday night had 32 pax though (ie. full) - this was the first time I have seen this.
