Old BA LHR 777

Mon May 14, 2018 7:06 pm

Does anybody know how many of the unconfigured B777 BA has at Heathrow. I know they're used on the Nassau/Grand Caymen route, is that it? How many are there, does anybody know?

I think he may mean the old seating from the early 2000s? Compared to the newer seating on the G-VIIx fleet.

I think there's 30 ish give or take, some now have the new 10Y or are in the process of getting it.

All of the G-YMMx aircraft and a handful of G-VIIx (maybe V, W and Y) have the old economy and premium economy seating, and old Rockwell IFE. The G-YMMx at least are being fully refurbished next year with new seating in Club, Premium and Economy.

The older configured G-VII* aircraft were sent to LGW

None of the LHR 777 fleet have the 10-abreast Y configuration which is the most recent upgrade.
All B777-300s and all the B777-200s with GE engines have the B787/380 style seating with Thales IFE systems.
All remaining RR powered 777-200s still have the older style seating and small Rockwell Collins IFE. If you are on a long range flight on a 777-200 such as BKK, GRU, EZE etc you can assume you will be on one of the latter. Also if you are on a 3class 777 ex LHR (aircraft with no FIRST) cabin you can also take it as a given. However these aircraft also feature on shorter routes too!

I'm sure the refurbished G-VIIx fleet are the short range 777 without crew rest. Similar to how Emirates have A380's without crew rest. That's why the YMM's are always on long haul as they have crew rest.
