Hi All...
Was just wondering if any fellow A.netters were fortunate enough to be on the recent LHR-BOM (BA139) or BOM-LHR(BA138) flights??
With new WT, WT+ and First seats, plus the new Thales IFE system....I'm curious to hear how it went!

The first flight already took off on the 1st September 2010 at 2.45 am from BOM. I was myself shocked to see it over the western express highway. When I went home, I saw the flight on the GDS. It was a last minute change and truly a hush hush affair.

Besides, many UK spotters have already captured this plane en route to BOM on the 31st August 2010 morning.

You're welcome. Have a look at this website. Just plug in any registration or flight and you'll see where the aircraft are and where they have been recently.

I'm not sure about DXB, but I think that it's only supposed to fly to ORD on Wednesdays.

Have BA only ordered the 77W and not the 773?? or have they ordered both types??

I don't think anyone is ordering the 773 these days, not when the 777-300ER is so much more versatile and presumably fuel efficient.

6 x 77W only (2 owned, 4 leased).

Are Boeing even still making 773s?

It is due back from DEL as BA142 on Wednesday morning (scheduled 06.45 am) after its maiden revenue flight LHR-DEL (BA143) from LHR on Tuesday 21 September. G-STBA appears to be having its first day off since it first entered service three weeks ago.
