BA BNA-LHR load factors

It has been about a month since the BA service from Nashville to London has begun. Does anyone know how full the flight has been overall? Have there been significant issues at any point? It seems like the flight is on time on most days. We are planning to be on this flight in a few weeks in Club Wor...

I hear the seat is similar to the one on old US Air A330s, but much better... I liked the one on the A330 especially being on the window, but it seemed like it could be better than that... I guess that is what the 77W should be like :-)
