In an internal message to its employees, British Airways revealed it intends to phase out the entire Boeing 747 fleet effective immediately, “subject to consultation”.
Before COVID-19, British Airways had 31 Boeing 747s in its fleet. The airline is currently down to 28, and all of them have been stored.
British Airways was supposed to gradually retire all 747s until 2024, but this is now set to be accelerated and the fleet will be retired over the next few months.
British Airways is the largest operator of the passenger Boeing 747-400. If this accelerated retirement plan goes through, it will mean the end of that title.
Airlines around the world including Qantas, KLM, Lufthansa, Virgin Atlantic, and more have been retiring some or all of their 747-400s amid COVID-19
Farewell, Queen of the Skies. This is truly the end of an era, and an icon of the British Airways fleet.
