BA World Traveller Questions

Mon Apr 22, 2013 8:00 pm

Hey! I am traveling on BA this summer in World Traveller, My current routing is:
BA 98 from YYZ-LHR
BA 65 LHR-NBO
BA 60 NBO-LHR
BA 217 LHR-IAD

I have a couple questions about BA world traveller;
1. Have they installed AVOD systems on all of the longhaul fleet?
2. What is the progress being made in implementing the new World Traveller interior?

Thanks a bunch!!

1. Currently all 744s, 77Ws, 763s and RR powered 772s have AVOD, as well as rerfebished 772s. The only BA long haul aircraft that do not have AVOD are GE powered, non-referbished 772s (which have a 12 channel loop system)

2. The new product features on all 77Ws and 18 772s are currently being fitted with the new cabin ( of which 8 are in service with the new product). There are no plans to retrofit other aircraft.

All the GE powered B777s that are getting the refurb should have it complete by June so chances are you will be guaranteed some form of avod!!!

Thank god!! I flew them in 2008 and got stuck with the loop system. Very frustrating.
Thanks for the input!

They are being refurbished at approx one per month. I flew on one at the beginning of August last year. The interior is then to the same spec as the 77ER's
BA source shows that about 12 have now been completed, assuming that one will be in the hangars at CWL being worked on, that leaves a maximum of 5 non AVOD 772's in service.

According to the BA source another refurbished 772 has just emerged from CWL and its place taken by an non AVOD aircraft, leaving only three still operating. At this rate you'll be very uinlucky not to get AVOD.
