BA Load Request (288 PHX-LHR 24 Dec)

Mon Dec 21, 2009 2:09 am

Can anyone "in the know" with BA inform me about the loads on flt. 288 (PHX-LHR) on Christmas Eve (24 Dec)? I am hoping I can strech out, as I will only be in Y class.

Cheers

I don't know the exact number of passengers booked on this flight, but in GDS this flight is wide open in all fare classes. Although the seatmap is not necessarily indicative of the actual number of pax booked on a flight, on your flight it does show a lot of unallocated seats - you may be even able to snag a row of 4 seats for yourself.  Smile

Best of luck and enjoy the flight!

The number of seats for sale as of 7am 23 dec are much the same. Still about 50 seats for sale in world traveller, this doesn't include overbooking figures but reckon there will be a good few spare seats. Enjoy the flight. By the way since you are ariving into London on Christmas day there is very limited to no public transport, no tube i think. Hope someone is picking you up!
