The 777 flew LHR
only during pre-service 'shakedown' flights. I guess they didn't want it to venture too far from home.....
777s are configured with Club Europe/Euro Traveller seating. They've all got some form of longhaul configuration, either F/J/W/Y or J/W/Y.
The largest aircraft you'll see regularly scheduled on European routes is the 767-300, used most often on AB
) (FRA / FRF / EDDF), Germany">FRA, MXP
Of course, when extreme circumstances apply, this all goes out the window. I have flown Newcastle-LHR
on a 767-300 due to the Hatfield rail crash, during the Cabin Crew strike a few years ago BA
sent a 747-400 to CDG
to bring back stranded passengers and there is even a photo of a BA
777 in the db at a domestic Terminal 1-LHR
gate operating a 'Shuttle' flight.
