Can anyone tell me exactly how many 742s remain in the BA fleet as of now? Also, I know they operate the 742s to Boston, Cairo, and I've also been told Miami. Do they fly anywhere else at this point? Thanks.

They are currently flying two daily 747-200s to Miami as temporary substitution for the normal two-daily 747-400s, both of which are being converted to four-class service. When those 744s are converted and put back on the MIA-LHR route, the two 742s will probably be retired.

Do BA ever use the 742's to Orlando Florida as I am flying on this route soon and would rather fly a 744 because I doubt a 742 will be fitted with new World Traveller service and PTV's if they are to be retired - anyone know?

Yes, regularly a 744 is used on LGW-MCO, though, check first, because 742s are being brought in as temporary substitions on 744 routes like MIA-LHR as they upgrade the 744s. Though, AFAIK, MCO-LGW is currently 744.
