Over the past few months BA has operated selected short-haul flights in Europe with wide body long-haul aircraft.

This originated when BA was operating a skeleton schedule in Europe, with wide body aircraft used for its cargo capacity.

The following short-haul services from London Heathrow are no longer operated with Boeing 787 aircraft from this week. They revert to Airbus A320 series short-haul aircraft:

Amsterdam on Wednesday & Thursday under flight numbers BA430 & BA431 ended on 29 October.

Athens on Friday under flight numbers BA632 & BA633 ended on 30 October.

Larnaca on Thursday under flight numbers BA662 & BA663 ended on 29 October.

Zurich on Saturday under flight numbers BA712 & BA713 will end today, 31 October.

BA will, from Sunday 1 November, operate a wide body Boeing aircraft between London Heathrow and Madrid every day under flight numbers BA458 and BA459.

Iberia will also continue to operate wide body Airbus aircraft between London Heathrow and Madrid every day under flight numbers IB3167 and IB3166.

Aer Lingus will continue to operate Airbus A330 aircraft between London Heathrow and Dublin under flight numbers EI178 and EI177 on Monday, Friday and Sunday.

As ever in the current environment, everything is subject to change at short notice. BA is evidently curtailing its short-haul schedules with a number of routes suspended for most of November.
