The 762 had a 2-4-2 seating configuration. For short haul they had 274 seats for longhaul 258. The route was initially Luton Bahrein Singapore Canberra/ Coolangatta as Britannia were not given rights to fly to the main Oz cities initially. This was soon changed to a full range destinations including Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Cairns, Brisbane and for one winter Alice Springs. There was also a series to Auckland.
The flights referred to in one of the earlier posts at Singapore in 2005 were a Hadj contract which was to have been based in Ujung Pandang but was moved after a series of bomb explosions including one next to the hotel we would have stayed in.
