A BA B772 went technical out of ATL and a few weeks ago there was a fire on one of their T7's at BOS. There was also the BA T7 that spewed jet-fuel out of LHR because a fuel cap had been left unsealed.

Is this just coincidence or shoddy maintenance or just bad luck?

I know 3 incidents doesn't add up to much given the size of BA, but have there been other problems with their T7's we don't hear about?

Just wondering.

Erm... For your info, there was no fire on the 777 in Boston, it was SMOKE. A big difference in aviation world!

When i was at Heathrow on Saturday we noticed a 320 was about to be towed across 27L with the rear cargo hold door open! We talked to the tug guys and they took her back to stand, but it goes to show that mistakes do happen.

I think theres 49 T7's with BA ??

The do seem to have a fair share of , well I wont say problems as such, more bad luck. My grandparents were on a BA T7 last year and as it was pushing back and they started up one of the engines, there was some sort of blow out and a lot of pieces had broken off. But for the time being I'd just put it down as a 'high number of unfortunate events' than a problem.

Eg777er, they currently have 43 B772s. They had 45 but 2 B772A were disposed of (I think they went to Khalifa then Varig (not sure though)).

The only problem I've seen with a BA T7 was my wife's PTV was not working on the 1 channel she so desperately wanted to watch in WTP, causing me to give up my window seat for the length of the film "Shocking"!.

Quick footnote, If I had not been looking out the window at takeoff I swear I would not have known we were off the ground, awesome plane G-RAES (and that's one of the older ones)
