After what has been two years of reduced demand owing to COVID-19, there does appear to be some form of normality returning as airlines commence their S22 schedules after much disruption. For one thing, it is great to be able to look at airline schedules once again especially when you look at local carriers like British Airways which always provide interest.
The S22 schedule is somewhat bittersweet considering this schedule no longer includes the now retired Boeing 747-400s which have been a common fixture right up to COVID-19; although somewhat of a blessing as British Airways has been focusing on refurbishing their Boeing 777 fleet with Club Suites which is nearly complete.
Below is the first half of the S22 schedule commencing on 27th March 2022, unless otherwise stated which is subject to change:

The 3-class Boeing 777-200ERs are almost close to finishing their refurbishment whilst their Boeing 777-300ERs is ongoing. Lastly, the Airbus A380s continue to return to service with a gentle stream returning following 2 years in storage.
