  • British Airways 1993 timetable

    Hi,

    If anyone could help me with this I would be extremely thankful. Does anyone know where I can get a timetable for British Airways flights for summer 1993 from Gatwick?
    I recently found a ticket on a flight I took from Gatwick to Paris in June 1993 and I am really hoping to try and find a way to find out which aircraft (type or even registration) I flew on.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Reason for keeping timetables found!

    My OAG from 1995 which is only 2 years ahead reads:
    LGW-CDG
    X7 0730-0930 BA2820 737 0
    X7 0930-1130 BA2824 737 0
    7 0930-1130 BA2826 737 0
    1045-1245 BA2828 737 0
    1330-1530 BA2832 737 0
    X6 1530-1730 BA2836 737 0
    1730-1930 BA2840 737 0
    X6 1955-2155 BA2844 737 0

    So my guess is a LGW based 737-236Adv.
    Some spotter out there may have exact reg. for flight/date
    Cheers!

      Hi Sam,

      I was wondering if you still have your British Airways summer timetable 1993. If so, would you be able to help me finding out which airplane type operated BA556 flight on the 28th August 1993 ?

      Thank you so much for your help.

        LOL. I really love these forum entries when people try to reanimate (paramedic language) VERY old topics.

        Federico, I don't know if you are aware that this topic was opened anno domini 2009 (!), only four weeks after I began to be a Jetphotos Junior member! And this again is a reason why I love this platform so much. You're right, Sam didn't write so much since November 2007, when he joined us. But when was he online? December 2017!

        So let me hope with you, that Sam comes back this month with his forum entry #18. I'm afraid, my avatar is not really the thing which you're lookin for...

        BA #556 in the Winter Schedule 2018... Heathrow to Fiumicino. Probably even the dep and the arr have changed during the years, haven't they.

        PS: 1993.. , you "Junior"... How old are you? But that's exactly how I began here in this forum, I was 30 back then, in 2008.
        But if you are 30 now, that would mean, you took out pencil and paper, and you wrote down the two letter airline code for British Airways plus the flight #, at the age of five. Hello, you so-called Junior... .........
        And welcome to jetphotos.

        PS II: Back on topic. If you really ask me, then I try something. BA introduced B737 and B757 in the 1980s, and we know that British Airways was founded in March 1974. And we also know that, what a coincidence, BA also have left the 737 club before the golden 737 jubilee:
        Farewell flight for the last BA-B737, September 2015.

        So, what do I assume. If you second me, and BA #556 in 1993 was yet the Fiumicino route, then still both a/c types are possible imho. A B757 is not too big for the Fiumicino route when probably EVERYBODY in Great Britain liked and likes to go to Italy: in August.

        One short question must be allowed: why don't we ask Brian? He's at least old (enough!) , and definitely closer to Heathrow than I am.
        LH and the Hamburg - Düsseldorf - Shannon - NYC route, open since June 1st, 1955. A/C type: Lockheed Super Constellation.
        LH is member in the 747 club since April 1970. Jubilees do count, believe me.
