BA B777 Seating Question

Wed Nov 30, 2011 4:50 pm

Am I correct in thinking that the current three class / non First situation is as follows :

G-VIIO / P / R / T at Gatwick
G-YMMA / B / C / D / E / F / R / S / T / U at Heathrow

My question is, have any of the other B777s ever has the non First config?

Cheers

Gatwick:

G-VIIO/P/R/T G-YMMB/F

Worth noting, in case of equipment swap, the F cabin is usually left empty or used as overflow J seating (F seat, J service).

Can I have a mojito on this flight?

G-YMMA and 'MF are configured for 275 passengers (J36 / W24 / M215). They also have an overhead crew rest area. So they are primarily (but not exclusively) operated on the LGW-MAU and LGW-MLE routes because of this rest facility and a similar flight crew facility in the J Class cabin.

The other four BA LGW based 3-class 772s, G-VIIO, 'IP, 'IR and 'IT are configured for 280 passengers (J40 / W24 / M216). They have no crew rest areas and hence are primarily used on the shorter long haul routes to holiday destinations in the Caribbean and Florida.

Additionally there are three four-class 772s currently based atLGW. G-VIIA, 'IB and 'IF are configured for 226 passengers (F14 / J48 / W40 / M124). They are primarily dedicated to flights to BDA, BGI and UFV and the extensions there of.

Thanks guys, I just have at the back of my mind that G-YMMG was delivered with no F. Can anyone recall?

Nope G-YMMG has always had F Class. G-YMMA-F were delivered with First but then converted to three class after a couple of years.

Ah now that's what I thought! So with the exception of the AML delivered LGW B777s and G-YMMR onwards, they had F on delivery and were re-fitted. That makes sense, thanks.

Yep, except for G-VIIT was originally delivered as a standard BA plane and later converted to LGW three class config. AML only originally had VIIO, P and R.

I think they have 48J seats do they not?

You are correct, all 777-200s regardless of whether they have F fitted all have 48J seats. With the exception of LGW based G-VIIO, 'IP, 'IR and 'IS which are configured with 40J

Yes. Thanks. The configuration of 'MA is now for 275 passengers (J48 / W24 /M203). The same applies to 'MF.

The figures I mistakenly used before were those prior to the fitting of the 2nd generation lie-flat J Class seats. At that time three lavoratories were removed and the wardrobe close to door #2 was converted to a new J Class kitchen to help increase the size of the J Class cabin..
