I was just wondering what type of seating arangment will be on the 744 I will be taking next tuesday from LHR to HKG. Will it be the one with 70 Business seats or 38?

What cabin are you in? You should be able to tell from the seatmap on BA.com*...unless you are in First.



*Go to Manage My Booking and match the seat rows up with www.seatexpert.com

Hey there,

The BA027 has the large club cabin (70 seats/50 main deck + 20 upper).

The BA031/025 has the smaller cabin (38 seats/18 main deck + 20 upper).

Cheers  Wink

Thank You much, do you think I will have any trouble getting a non-rev upgrade on BA25 on March 7th?

No, don't think you will.

All flights have 9+ seats available.

the 027 is the busiest. 031 & 025 are showing 50+ seats avilable down the back.

So BA in LHR is fairly good about upgraded offline Nonrevs?

to be honest? Not like they used to. I use my ba staff travel a lot to travel back and forwards to sydney (home). the only time I get upgraded to Club is if the CSD operating the flight has picked up (and taken sympathy of) my 'begging letter'.  Wink

World Traveller Plus has been our downfall as staff! Lol

generally pre WTP days you would get bumped from WT to Club if they had to upgrade. Now it tends to be from WT to WTP. They will generally only upgrade to Club if they really have to (ie down the back overbooked). This applies to both BA staff and other airlines.

Thank You again for the info, this will help out on my around the world trip starting next monday. I will be going from PIT-LGA on US. Take the train to JFK to catch a VS 744 to LHR. Spend the day in London and catch one of the BA flights to HKG that night. We are spending the night in HKG and catching one of the CX flights the next afternoon. When we get to LAX we are either going to take the redeye on US back to PIT or take HP to LAS for a night or two. I was really hoping to get upgrading on at least one of the longer legs just to make to trip a bit more bearable.

JDW just to let you know....I have made a mistake! I got the BA025 and 027 mixed up.  blush 

So the BA025 has the LARGE CLUB CABIN and the BA027 the SMALLER CLUB CABIN.

The BA025 is also the busiest booked with the BA027 showing 50+ available in WT.

SORRY!  boggled

Where could you find out which cabin does BA025 or BA027 have and/or other BA flights?
Its just very interesting to know that BA025 has the lager cabin and BA027 has the smaller cabin.

No, it is only available to BA staff. You have to enter your staff number, password and D.O.B to access the staff travel pages.
