Quoting Stitch (Reply 13): The 77Ws will have it since BA's "production video" for their first model showed the WT+ and WT cabins being installed in PAE (I guess only FIRST and Club World will be installed in Cardiff?).
No cabins are installed in PAE, the promo vid only showed the outside of the plane, not the inside, it was a mish mash of footage. All BA cabins are installed at Cardiff.

The Economy seats they showed sure looked like what is on the BA site, but maybe BA is sourcing from a supplier used by others who are using a similar covering color and they chose that footage to represent what is going in at Cardiff.

BA have actually put a notice on their website to say that the seats in the video were not theirs. The video was mix of footage of 777 construction with shots of the new BA jet

Very nice. Love the headrests and tasteful overall design.
Being a former Chicagoan, I'm also pleasantly surprised that the 773ER is flying to ORD as the first North American destination for the type. I thought that JFK would get top priority over ORD in BA for the 773ER like JFK normally does in other product/aircraft rollouts. But now with AA/BA/IB ATI, I guess ORD has more importance than ever.

They look similar to the qantas seats, although qantas have the panasonic IFE, whereas BA have gone for thales, which is a bit of an odd choice cos the industry (both long and short haul) seems set on panasonic being the best choice. At least there are widescreen tvs in economy, instead of 4:3, and I hope they get rid of the airshow version they currently have and replace it with a better flight map.
This cabin upgrade is a bit overdue. Its fine for westbound, because american airlines are stuck in the 90s when it comes to economy (even the new continental seats look crap), only delta seems to be a bit ahead with their leather seats. But for east bound, and competing with virgin, it's pretty dated in comparison to singapore and emirates. Still, it's nice to see someone care about economy passengers, even if it's still just a seat, and nothing revolutionary like the thompson product or the air new zealand (although calling that revolutionary is a bit far)
