BA FLEET: NEW AIRCRAFT ARRIVALS AND RETIREMENTS WIKI

BA are in the mid-stages of a large fleet renewal programme. The new aircraft have enabled BA to retire the 767 and old 737 fleets, although the 737 MAX looks likely to appear in the fleet from 2023. and will eventually allow the retirement of the 747 fleet plus the addition of new routes, both short-haul and long-haul. BA have not yet announced the replacement aircraft for the majority of their 777-200ERs which are approaching retirement age.

This Wiki has been divided into:
  • Projected Fleet
    • New Arrivals
      • Retrofits
        • Retirements
          • Historical Fleet

(Click on the aircraft type, where there is a link, to go to the relevant details in this wikipost.)

I would not make firm assumptions on anything posted here, unless there is a source referenced. Without sources, it is all speculation and rumours.

Fair point. My source. It may not be true, but I think our educated guess is that this seems right. I am guessing it is still sat in a hanger at JNB at the moment?
