RE: BA LGW Reduced Club Cabin On Leisure 777's

The average J fare to Orlando is not £2.5k. As most are holiday makers, many are sold at the leisure fares of around £1600.

I imagine the move is challenging enough without adding any further complexity such as significant schedule changes.

I also doubt being ten minutes closer to the station is sufficient to merit a change in strategy to target business pax and business destinations.

RE: British Airways - New Long Haul/B789 Routes

Why would the new crew need to build up hours and landings on a new VARIANT? from a licence perspective it's the same aircraft type. They'll just need to read a book on the slight differences. That's the beauty of variants. Practically seamless from a crew perspective.

It wasn't necessary when the 773 arrived - they just stuck a 'remember this is the longer one' notice around the place.

RE: British Airways - New Long Haul/B789 Routes

The 787 and a380 were new aircraft types and this is just a new variant. I imagine the lack of an announcement suggests initially it's more likely to be introduced on existing 787 routes as more of a soft launch at least until the winter schedule kicks in at the end of October.
