Sorry, looks like this is an exclusive 742 service until 28sep. Were you hoping for the 777? Check their schedules page to see for yourself.

Rgds,

Yeah i know i will be flying on a 742. but i know they are remodeling all there planes. i wrote to them asking if they were remodeling the 742 and they said no because the were replacing them with the 777-200. i assume because they are not remodeling the 742 they would not be painting them in the new livery. i just wonder if my 742 will be remodeled like the one in the picture?

Just as a matter of interest, did you explain what you meant by remodelling. The reason why the BA B742's are painted in the World Schemes colours is because the scheme is 3 years old, quite a bit of the fleet has been repainted, however they may not install the new economy and business class seats into the classics because they will be gone by next year.
So maybe thats what they thought you meant by remodelling, refitting the interior, which is too expensive for a plane which will only serve the airline for another year.
