The 757s were delivered with 180 seats, 195 on the Shuttle ones.
Blimey.

Incorrect - BA A321NEO's have 37 rows (Row 26 being the emergency exit rows which has 4 abreast seating). Do the math (36x6)+4 =220.

The new BA 321Neo's do not have the exits for 235/240 pax like EZY do with 240 pax.

EZY's have the 4 larger overwing exits - BA have 2 which means 220 max pax (but the other 2 exits maybe fitted but deactivated as can be offered by AB)

As you may know the new 321neo is offered with a number of exit configurations with varying doors and/or overwing exit windows

Similar to the difference between the overwing exits on EZY's A319s and BA's.

(but the other 2 exits maybe fitted but deactivated as can be offered by AB)
Unless it's my imagination, you can (just) discern the outline of the deactivated exit on the BA aircraft:

Yes Dave, thanks - The 2nd exit window does look like it there but deactivated, handy for resale or re-configuring seats - These new windows are larger than the 319/320 ones - and the main doors have double lane slides to enable the max of 240 seats if ALL exits ARE active.

Indeed,
EZY & some charter airlines chose to have 4 exit windows on their 319's to enable 156 seats (144 or 150 with only 2)

Anyone know what is the fate of the last 767 flying today. Scrap, cargo work in Africa?

Scrap, according to other sources online. BA were one of two airlines, the other being China Yunnan, to order 767s with RR engines. Qantas leased some RR powered 767s from BA, but have retired these too. Their odd-ball engines and "ACE" galleys make them fairly unattractive.

They are all off to an raf base in wales to be scrapped. As far as I’m aware there are no plans for any of them to be stored or kept flying.

BA tried to sell them to the RAF years ago but they went with new A330s instead. The engines will be ferried back down the M4 for use on the 747s.

Any one , any idea why BA have cancelled both afternoon and evening departures from Belfast to Heathrow on Sunday 09th December?

means latest dep from Belfast that day is 0915am , making a weekend visit from LHR impossible.

Cheapest one way on Aer Lingus evening departure is 420.

are they cancelled or just sold out and removed from the booking engine?

If EI is 420 then maybe that's why

Well ,both flights are almost full in both directions tomorrow ,so dot understand why 02nd and 9th would be drastically different.Could maybe ubnderstand consolidating 2 into 1 ,but to cancel both seems overkill and is poor customer service .
