BA have served DEN for years with the 747, and I have flown BA DEN-LHR often, with the 747. With what type will BA serve DEN from now on?

Since BA have announced the immediate retirement of their entire 747 fleet, and BA have historically served DEN with the 747, with what type will BA serve DEN going forward? Could it be the 777, 787, or A350? All my BA flights (DEN and otherwise) have been on the 747 (I haven't flown on any other ty...Jump to post

A more detailed look at FWA's Project Gateway (as they now call the expansion project for the terminal, apron, parking, new solar farm, etc.), with videos, documents, and architectural impressions:
FWA is moving forward with its planned terminal expansion and other projects, now that the project has been awarded to Michael Kinder and Sons (MKS) and Flintco to plan, design, and build the expansion projects. https://fwairport.com/news/fort-wayne-international-airport-moves-forward-on-47.3-millio...Jump to post

And I’m surprised no one else has noticed this, but there’s a sterile connector from the future new Gate 1 to an FIS. Me thinks that G4 wants to start Mexico from FWA in addition to SBN.

To add to my previous post, I should note that the FWA terminal expansion is designed to increase the space between gates (along with the aforementioned addition of a gate to make a total 9 gate), or "stretch" the gates apart, to allow more ramp space for the larger aircraft that are now s...Jump to post
The Fort Wayne Journal-Gazette says construction on the planned FWA terminal expansion could begin in 2021.

Do BA use T5A for widebodies? I seem to recall only seeing narrow bodies there. T5A is normally used for narrowbodies (with a large number of jetbridges close to each other), and the satellites (B and C) serve widebodies and narrowbodies. There are also remote stands on the T5 property. SmithAir747Jump to post
That being said, I flew out of LHR last year back to the US, and there was no additional screening, just the same checkpoint in T3 that everyone else used, and nothing more at the gate.

I hope next time I fly to London from Denver that I get on one of the heritage 747s. I need to go to the UK and Netherlands between 11 and 22 June and will most likely take the BA 747 LHR-DEN return. My fingers are crossed that I end up on one of the retros.
I cannot find any connecting routings or schedules from DEN to HNL via any of the California gateways. I tried random dates for a DEN-xxx-HNL trip, but no dice.
