BA FLEET: NEW AIRCRAFT ARRIVALS AND RETIREMENTS WIKI

BA are in the mid-stages of a large fleet renewal programme with over 100 new aircraft on order for delivery in the 2010s. The new aircraft have enabled BA to retire the 737 and 767 fleets, and will eventually allow the retirement of the 747 fleets plus the addition of new routes, both shorthaul and longhaul. It will see the start of the shorthaul fleet replacement with the latest A320neo family. BA have not yet announced a replacement aircraft for the 777s but it is likely that some of the older 772s will be retired and replaced within the next decade too.

This renewal programme, which is being complemented with a cabin refresh for some of the older aircraft, will see the following fleet in 2021.

It looks like G-XLEH was at the delivery centre yesterday. The angle of the photo doesn't make it possible to see whether the test registration has been removed, which AIUI normally takes place the day before formal delivery. So I don't know whether this is actually a sign of imminent delivery.

And could mid-J routes have coped with LU being withdrawn now, and then LF later being out of service for some time for the re-fit? Possibly not - but we can't know one way or the other.
Is there a possibility for a new twist, Globalizer? Yesterday, BA Source said "British Airways Boeing 747-436 G-BNLJ positioned London Heathrow – Cardiff-Wales for maintenance early this afternoon as BA9173." Since LJ has no scheduled WFU date, could she get LU's NF seats? Shall we open a new book?

As G-BNLE appears to be flying on, can anybody confirm whether G-BNLUs new F cabin will be fitted into G-CIVC?

I understand G-BNLE is due a C check shortly so it will be interesting to see whether it will be put through it and retained further or stood down.

Thanks - it landed at LHR at 1844.

Have now travelled on EA, EB, EC, ED, EE and EF. Hope I can get EG and EH on the 380 flights planned over the next couple of months!
Yup, sure is. I just saw the flight tracker this morning. Here is the link:

737 G-DOCB was withdrawn last week (10th October). It is scheduled to fly to Cranfield imminently for use by the university.

A320 G-GATJ will ferry from Woensdrecht Air Base in the Netherlands to Gatwick on the 31st October. This will be the first of the old 'new' Gatwick A320s.

As for the 747s and their F cabins being salvaged, the plan is below:

NLU -> NLJ
NLE -> IVC

NLE is due to be retired in the first week of November. NLU will ferry to Victorville for storage/scrapping on the 25th October.

Regards,
Champ
