Also I suppose I might as well throw in the new F although it's not 77W exclusive-

Wolrd Traveller Plus looks amazing, nice seats, the TV's still look on the small side compared to economy seats on airlines like
EK,EY,QR and SQ to name afew.

Yes, I want to see actual pics from inside the plane. The pics that are shown on here are not very good. Maybe someone works as an F/A for BA and can take some pics of the inside of this aircraft and post them on here.

In person the seats look MUCH better then in the pics shown already.

I got on board STBB the other day but she was halfway thru being cleaned and looked a state so did not take any pictures.

If I get another chance to hop on board I will see if I cant get a pic or 2.

I can't believe I never twigged that about the 777. 3 - 3 - 3 in Y but 2 - 4 - 2 in W.

Somewhat more spacious that EK's 777 3-4-3 in Y then.

Are the new WT and WT+ seats going to be fitted out on all of BA's long-haul aircraft? B767, B777 and B747?

It is confirmed that the GE 777s will get the new WT/WTP and the RRs may also get it later on. The 767s and 744s will get a refreshment of new seat covers, blankets and carpets e.g. like QFs 744s did.

This is what BA say in the links provided in Reply 1:

"The new World Traveller Plus experience is available right now on the latest addition to our fleet, the state-of-the-art Boeing 777-300ER, operating on selected flights to and from Mumbai, Chicago, Delhi and Dubai.

"Two more fully fitted brand-new 777-300ERs will enter service by the end of 2010, with further additions to the fleet scheduled throughout 2011 and 2012."

BA have also announced that they will be fitted to their 787s and 380s when they are delivered.

I take this to mean that they have no plans at present to retrofit the new WT+ and WT cabins to the existing fleet of 744s or 772s. But I may be wrong.

As posted above GMIS 777s will get the new interiors and talks say that all 777s might get it eventually. 747s and 767s will get a refreshment which involves basically changing the seat covers and blankets.

I must say there doesn't seem to be much interest from airline enthusiasts in BA's new seats. So far no one is able to find cabin photos taken inflight. Would be nice to see these new seats "in action" rather than the promotion photos.

Well they look pretty ordinary to me. Nothing ground breaking - just catching up to what their competitors have done. IMHO VS still have a better PE product - hard and soft than the new BA offering.

Both aircraft have only just started flying, and are mainly only doing 2 routes to India, with the odd DXB/ORD. Not every netter is flying on those routes so it will take some time.

The new WTP I think is better then the VS hard product, but I do agree the service offering on BA really needs to be changed to make it worthwhile.

How many GE 777s does BA have versus RRs? Have they retired the non-E.R. 777s yet?

Also:
What exactly are the changes in the new world traveller and world traveller plus cabins? And when will they be rolled onto the rest of the fleet?

Also, what is the status of Club World and First upgrades on the rest of the longhaul fleet?

BA originally had 5 772As in service but two were returned to Boeing and went to VASP. The three still in service are G-ZZZA to 'ZC. (ZZZ looks like 777!)

BA has 24 GE powered 772ERs. They are registered G-VIIA to G-VIIH, G-RAES, G-VIIJ to 'IP and G-VIIR to 'IY. (VII is Roman numeral 7. No VIII as that is Roman numeral 8. 'RAES' is tribute to Royal Aeronautical Society. The letter 'Q' is never used in British registrations to avoid possible visual confusion with 'O'.)

BA has 19 RR powered 772s. They are registered G-YMMA to 'ML, G-YMMN to 'MP and G-YMMR to 'MU. (First delivered in year 2000 where Y=year and MM is Roman numeral for 2000. G-YMMM written off in short landing at LHR.)

Quoting washingtonian (Reply 18):

All 744s and 772s have 2nd generation Club World seats. 5 GE 772s (G-VIIU to 'IY) and a 744 are in service with the new 'F' cabins. 13 RR 772s do not have any F seats (G-YMMA to 'MF, G-YMMO and 'MP and G-YMMR to 'MU..

Long haul 773s are all cvonfigured with ist generation 'J' Class lie-flat seats and will not be reconfigured with the 2nd generation seats.

BA has two 77Ws in service (G-STBA and 'BB) both of which have the new 'F' cabin, 2nd generation 'J' lie-flat seats and the new 'W' and 'M' cabins. A third (to be G-STBC) is due to be rolled out at PAE in the coming weeks.

I think you mean VARIG. I can't find any evidence that VASP ever operated the 777 but VARIG had 2 ex-BA 772s.

Actually, three are in service with new First, CIVF CIVG and CIVM.
On a side note, a couple of months ago BNLV returned from the desert to reenter service and is now waiting a maintenance slot. I am seeing reports that BNLU has also come back recently (still have no confirmation). Wonder if those two will be getting the new cabin as well.
