its usually a 3 class 777 (G-YMMA/C/D/E/R/S/T/U)

the 777-300's have new First (so some lucky CW passengers will have a good trip tonight)  

Not sure why its on the EZE tonight... but I think its a one off.. Tomorrow back to the 772.

Sadly, this must be a one off.

I hope that they change the 3 class to 4, however I fly GRU- LHR quite often in F and recently (including only 4 days ago), it is almost empty... so I really don't think the demand would be there to EZE.... although CW down to Buenos Aires is always almost full.

Out of interest- does anyone know why a 773 is being used tonight?

Edited to say:

I wonder if it is connected to this: http://www.thebasource.com/british-a...mb-ba2276-cardiff-wales-diversion/

Unlikely as YMMB is a Gatwick bird at the moment.

Don't forget it is Carnaval - which has clearly done strange things to demand from Brazil. I was on the 246 on Thursday night - First was reasonably full, all Club World pax were moved upstairs (the downstairs cabins were literally empty), WTP was about 1/4-1/3rd full and WT was probably about 40% full. Never seen it like that before...

Answer is probably who knows? EZE may have been heavily overbooked either outbound or on the return and STBA's scheduled route could be easily subbed with a 772.

Thanks for clarifying that!

We must of passed in mid air, I flew back on BA247, maybe it is carnaval, or demand for these routes down here dropping at the moment. I'm curious to know how the 'new' AA flight DFW-GRU is doing? I saw it in Sao Paulo as I was taking off later on Friday evening... (Livery looks better in the flesh than in photos btw)

Could be, although I did notice that it was delayed by an hour or so, maybe that it was a last min substitution... Guess we will have to wait for someone at BA to tell us!

Wonder if it could be connected to the Iberia Strikes, I have a friend whose direct IB flight to EZE from MAD has been cancelled and he has been offered to fly via LHR with BA...

Just a thought...

No it appears not as Iberia only appear to have cancelled selected short haul flights. Full details are on their website http://tinyurl.com/byaww8t

IB cancelled one of its daily flights MAD-EZE for the entire 5 day period.

As I also mentioned, a friend of mine has had his direct IB flight cancelled to EZE... so yes, IB have cancelled some Long Haul flights...
