London - British Airways has started to phase out the operations of its last five Boeing 767-300 in the fleet.

On November 1st, a 767-300 with the registration G-BNWX was removed from the service, and the other four will follow in the next three weeks.

The Boeing 767-300ERs of British Airways can accommodate up to 259 passengers. The British flag carrier has used the aircraft on busy European routes.

On 4, 7 and 26 November (two times), the other four devices will be taken out of service. They are temporarily stored at the British Royal Air Force base St. Athan. It is not yet known what will happen next.

British Airways replaces the 767s with Airbus A320s and A321s, which means that the airline will only fly with narrow body aircraft to almost all European destinations.

There is no farewell party planned for the 767s.
