The RR powered 777s all have AVOD (G-YMM*)
The GE powered 777s mostly have GMIS (non-AVOD) (G-VII*), except G-VIIU, V, W, X, Y which do have AVOD
I believe all of the 777s now are fitted with the new club world cabin.
AUH and MCT usually sses the A series 777's, G-ZZZA, B, C. Otherwise it will most certainly be a GE powered bird as the RR ones are used on longer routes as they have a bit more range and also crew rest areas.
Hope that helps.

Quoting hotplane (Reply 5): YMME has been sitting outside for a week or so with both engine cowls missing with the engines wrapped in plastic. Can anyone confirm what the situation is with this aircraft?
The incident a few months ago when a BA B777 had a D duct damage and diverted to AMS has led to detailed D Duct inspoections on all the affected aircraft. A lot of D Ducts have been removed for repair, and this is the last one and is still waiting for a set of repaired ducts.

Thanks very much for the info!

Is G-RAES also in this category?
Also, I see that G-ZZZA is at Cardiff at the moment, what's the story there?
Quoting BA174 (Reply 4): AUH/MCT will almost defiantly be a straight 200 as apose to the VII or YMM ER series. The 200s get over to the states and Africa too
So what features do these have onboard - any upgraded IFE or First cabins?

In CW cabin they have no isle connection points at doors 2 so you have to go through the galley if you need to cross. All Y toilets are at doors 4 back of WTP and down the back is 100% galley which the crew love. F has 17 seats.
77As at the moment have the old 12 channel GMIS IFE. It could howver be as mentioned above a GE 777-200ER of which some have AVOD some don't. RR aircraft also make occasional outings to DXB too.

Quoting alitaliadc10 (Reply 7): I am flying LHR-DXB in November on a BA 777 - do they use the GE planes on this?
Currently BA operate two flights a day on the LHR-DXB route, BA107 and BA109. Both flights are nominally operated by 744s. However they are actually being operated by a mix of GE 772s, RR 772s, 744s and, in the case of BA107, twice a week with BA's only 77W.
Here is a listing of what operated BA107 over the last couple of weeks:
The only aircraft in the above list to be fitted with the new 'F' cabin is the 77W (G-STBA).
From the start of the Winter timetable BA will add a third flight. Then the timetable shows that BA107 and BA109 will be operated by 772s and the additional flight (BA105) by a 763. But who knows? You may just get lucky and get a 77W. But with three daily flights perhaps a 772 is more likely as BA's 77Ws - they will have doubled their operational fleet to 2 by November - have a few more seats than their 'Hi J' 744s.

The data site quoted tends not to be accurate for any flights which straddle midnight since it picks up the same aircraft departing Heathrow late night on (say) 1st September and can then also log it arriving in Dubai early on 2nd if it is receiving a Middle East feed. It therefore logs the same aircraft for both days and blocks the correct aircraft being identified for (in this example) the 2nd September flight since it only permits one rego per flight number per day. The tracker pages here seem not to be afflicted with this issue: http://thebasource.com/jettracker.html http://thebasource.com/flighttracker.html
