Alex – just to expand your point, the 7 remaining long haul 767-300’s are due to go to the knacker’s yard this year, if Boeing can deliver the promised rather larger 787-900’s which are supposedly all for long haul with 8 first class seats. None are due before fall/winter so expect to see the long haul 767’s well into 2016.
The 7 remaining short haul variants, are if I recollect are to be replaced in time, say 2018 or so, by A320 variants – I think this was in an analysts presentation last summer for IAG. It would be a similar move to that made by AA on their JFK to LAX and SFO routes this past year or so. The sheer economics of the smaller plane outweighing the lack of wide bodied amenity. Mind you AA’s 767 – 200 ‘s were positively geriatric!
