British Airways ‘Mixed Fleet’ Cabin Crew Destinations and Route Changes 2019/2020

Unlike many airlines, British Airways has three different types of cabin crew working out of its Heathrow (LHR) hub.  Not only do these three types (or fleet’s) of cabin crew have different contracts and varying terms and conditions, they also operate different routes and never operate on the same plane together.

All BA cabin crew who joined the airline after 2010 are known as ‘Mixed Fleet’ crew – the name comes from the fact that they operate both short-haul routes and long-haul routes.  The other two fleets of crew are Worldwide crew (who only operate long-haul flights) and Eurofleet crew – who, as the name suggests, only fly on domestic and European routes.

Because the three crew types can’t mix, Mixed Fleet has its own route network –  destinations that are solely operated by Mixed Fleet cabin crew.  British Airways currently flies to a total of 183 destinations in 70 countries and across six continents.  Mixed Fleet cabin crew operate approximately 49 short-haul routes and XX long-haul routes.

Due to the fact that British Airways now only employs Mixed Fleet crew at LHR the number of destinations the fleet operates has steadily increased over the years.  The destinations do change occasionally and we’ve highlighted the routes that are likely to be swapped in the coming months.  We’ll keep this page updated as changes happen.
