BA 77W Summer 2012 Schedule

Sun Dec 04, 2011 11:12 am

What routes are BA's 777-300's flying Summer 2012? I'm heading to BOM and back from DEL in April and would love to know if they are going to be kept on those routes!

Why is that route being down-graded to 77W?
I'm pretty sure BA does good at LAX!

BA does great at LAX. The 77W carries a similar number of passengers and haul lots of freight and is much better on fuel.

Highly doubtful. They don't have very many yet.

Get used to it.....the age of the 747 is about to start its death at BA. A number of 744s are already on the scrap heap and at present very little interest has been shown by the airline for the 748. So the days of the intimiate First cabin in the nose and the quiet and exclusive upper deck club are to be done away with as I can assure you the A380 is just another big jet which will lack any of these features!
My views are my own and do not reflect any other person or organisation.

The death of the 747 at BA started ages ago.

The Upper Deck on the A380 is much nicer than the 777 cabin though. Its narrower so feels much better than the flying dormitory that is the 777. Its also quieter too as you are not next to those massive 777 engines. Sitting upstairs on anything just seems so much more lovely

Currently I believe BA are virtually dedicating their 77Ws to flights to HKG (BA027), JFK (BA177) and NRT (BA005). There has also been an occasional flight to ORD (BA297).

The A net myth of the 773 having the same capacity as a 744 rears its head yet again. It all depends on the mix of seats, yes the BA 773's have more seats than the Hi J 744's but this is due to having rather fewer clubworld seats. They seat less pax than the Mid J 744's. I believe that the 773 has a slightly smaller cabin area than the 744, and will always seat fewer passengers if the seat classes are equal.

BA probably need slightly less capacity now on LHR-LAX than they did previously as they now have direct daily flights from both Vegas and San Diego.

I wonder whether BA may go for either DXB, SIN or JNB as the final destination ?

It seems like BA are quite interested in having the 77Ws on flagship routes right now, excepting NRT, all the other routes are operated at least 2/3x daily during that period.

I dont think flagship routes have anything to do with it. Its the mix of routes which offers the best utilisation for what is a scarce resource. The next destination will be the one which fits best

DXB is the most likely out of these, Due to the fact that the aircraft spends far to much time on the ground in JNB, SIN wouldn't fit with the current 6 aircraft planned operation based on the routes that have already been selected.

Routes rumoured to be possibles for the final 77W rotation are ATL, BAH/DOH, BOM, DEL DFW, IAH, KWI, LOS, SEA, SFO, YVR & YYZ

LAX is not a downgrade. It is the third daily flight (which is a seasonal flight) being changed to 777-300ER. The remaining two daily flights are 747-400.
