For BA Mainline: All 744s have New Club World (NCW) flatbeds and WT+ fitted. All ex-LHR 777s do too. There are still a few (3 if memory serves) 777s ex-LGW with the Old Club World (OCW) crade seats and no WT+. As above, the 767 fleet has not yet been 'dusked' either so contains OCW (and no WT+).
If your flight to YYZ is showing cradle seats, maybe it has been substituted for a 767 for some reason. However, be careful - it may just be one of the 3-class 777s with no FIRST; only Club World (flat beds), WT+ and WT-. You can tell if the seatmap is OCW or NCW by the layout. If it's showing 2-4-2 in J on a 777 (not 2-3-2 as the pic above shows for OCW) then it's NCW.

There is a special 777 version just with the new Club World an the World Traveller class. This seat layout is not shown on the BA page and not at seatguru.com. That is why I was confused.
I think something odd is going on. This 777 is the type they typically operate on the 'bucket and spade' routes ex-LGW where premium demand is low. I would be very, very surprised if it was operating LHR-YYZ...
