    What has it been replaced with to Larnaca and what is the Business Class like please?


    An A320 to Larnaca with the Club Europe shorthaul product.


    I used it on the EDI “shuttle” service more than a few times and I must admit I preferred it to the 320 .
    I wonder if Ba is going to rota in a 787 instead ?


    Had some good flights on the 767. Mainly to Cyprus but also Toronto to LHR as well as MAN and EDI to/from LHR on some of the busy flights.


    First flew on the 767 in 2004 I think, just before the Athens Olympics and did the LHR / ATH trip a few times with work out there. Liked the space on this and much preferred it to the B757 which also plied this route. Then, travelled on it much more and more recently when it worked the LHR / GLA shuttles adding capacity after BMI’s demise. Fond memories.


    LP the MAN=LHR shuttle was indeed often a 767 and the magnificent Manchester crew served a full cooked breakfast in often only 30 minutes flight time – a wonderfully choreographed service! Also flew it frequently BWI-LHR in the USAir alliance days when I believe it might have been a joint venture with mixed crews. Later one of the PHL flights was 767 with the original Club flat seat in 2-2-2. Very nice if you had one of the middle seats. Lots of AA transcontinentals and transatlantics with various seting formats depending on how long ago. And a few JAL too – I think OKI was 767 and other internals, maybe SIN too. It was
    a great favorite for me until the dreaded 777 spoiled flying forever.


    Flown to both Edinburgh and Athens this year on 767’s. Gate A10 every time. Nice aircraft, the only criticism I had was the small overhead lockers


    ‘767’ and ‘iconic’…nah, not buying that, sorry
