Which BA B777 Tends To Fly To Nairobi?

Thu Apr 14, 2011 2:32 pm

Does anyone know which B777's normally fly to Nairobi from Heathrow? Is it the ones with the 12 channel loop entertainment?

I'm not sure whether it is regularly, but the last time i operated that sector (last month), it was indeed the old 12 channel loop 'GMIS' system.

When are you going to NBO?

10th October of this year. I can't stand the old 12 channel loop system. It's not so bad on an overnight flight because you just tend to eat and then sleep, but the flight leaves at 10:20am and gets into Nairobi at 8:55pm - that's a long 8/9 hour flight waiting for the film you want to watch!!

According to thebasource flights this month have been exclusively with GE engined 777s.
Only 2 flights this month have featured aircraft with New First and AVOD. All other flights have
been on aircraft with the loop system.

All of these flighs are AVOD aren't they? According to the basource, so still quite a high chance of getting AVOD over GMIS?

Hello 8herveg,

First of all, I hope you enjoy your stay in Nairobi - it's my home city and you are going during the brilliant time when the weather is becoming warmer - and everything is in bloom - flowers, fruit and women!

Back to the flights, I totally agree that whilst I love look out over the African lanbdscape at 30000ft+, but the 12 bog standard channels are annoying, I am not up to speed about any update plans to the 772s.

I would love for the 77W to go down to Nairobi one day - It'll be the first of it's kind there - but that is a dream.
There's Method in the Madness ...

A significant number of the 777s have the old IFE (mostly four class GE aircraft I believe), with channels operating a loop system. I believe most of the RR aircraft have the new IFE, but I could be wrong.

If the aircraft has new First, then it also has the AVOD IFE.
Next flights: LGW-LBA-LGW, LHR-SIN-SYD, SYD-BKK-LHR, LGW-GRO, GRO-CIA, CIA-MAD, MAD-LGW

No none of the GE powered 777s from G-ZZZA through to and including G-VIIN have AVOD. All 777s RR and GE powered from G-VIIO onwards have AVOD.
