BA 77W Routes Summer 14 / Winter 14-15

Thu Apr 17, 2014 12:40 am

Does anyone have a list of where BA will send their 77Ws this summer (north America) and upcoming winter?

GIG, SIN/SYD, NRT, JFK BA175, BOM BA199, PVG

They are the ones I know off the top of my head.

My August BA207 flight to MIA has been changed from 744 to 77W.

Slight tangent, but my Sept return from SEA has also been changed from 744 to 772

For the upcoming winter the 77W will be used on BA283/282 (LHR-LAX) on TUE/THU.

I recently checked a Monday in June (June 16th) and found 77Ws on the following:

LHR-SEA
LHR-ORD
LHR-GIG
LHR-BOM
LHR-NRT
LHR-PVG
LHR-HKG
LHR-SIN-SYD
This is my signature until I think of a better one.

Has anyone at BA heard anything about LHR-SCL? I heard there were plans a while back but then all went silent... Thanks if anyone knows...

To my knowledge, it's a 744 and 772.

Anyone know the likelihood of BA294 from ORD switching from 744 to 77W? I'm taking the flight on July 26. I was hoping it'd stay 744, as this would be my first trip on the upper deck of the 744. Thanks for your help.

The 77Ws have been seen on both 296/297 and 295/294 rotations in the last few weeks, but at the moment it is still showing as a B744.

One thing I will bet is that ain't gonna be a 77W if it starts on BA metal.  
Although personally, I was suspecting that LAN may use TAM's former GIG slots to start it themselves if they have 787s to spare.

It would be nice to see a BA 77W in PHL. Can it happen; will it happen?

What does BA's 744 retirement plan look like? When will it start? I wonder if BA will send 77Ws to MEX once the 744s are retired.
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

The retirement of members of the G-BNL- series has already commenced

However a few will remain along with the later G-CIV- and G-BYG- registered series aircraft for a number of years yet and probably few will still be around next decade !

Scheduled withdrawn dates may be viewed here:-

This is the current planned retirement programme:


May 2014: G-BNLS

August 2014: G-BNLI

September 2014: GBNLF

October 2014: G-BNLW

July 2015: G-BNLG

October 2015: G-BNLU

November 2015: G-BNLV

November 2015: G-BNLX

January 2016: G-BNLZ


With the demise of G-BNLL at JNB the above programme could well be amended.

Quoting EddieDude (Reply 14):
When will it start?

Back in October 2008 when G-BNLC was withdrawn from use. Currently BA still operate 49 of the 57 744s delivered to them. G-BNLB and 'LC have been broken up at CWL. G-BNLA, 'LD, 'LH, 'LM and 'LR are stored in the desert at VCV. These five aircraft are still on the British register even though three have been parked for some time. G-BNLT was withdrawn from service earlier this month.

LHR-HKG

Normally BA dispatches 1 daily A380 and 1 daily B77E for HKG.
Perhaps that's a one-time last-min change?

How many freqs does BA have to NRT and are there any plans to add more, given HND?

BA currently operates a daily NRT service, as does VS. No Japanese carriers operate to NRT (from LHR), which is amazing!

I believe BA has the right to increase its NRT service, but they will be looking closely to see what effect the HND service has on NRT numbers; I would expect them to maintain a daily service but downgrade to a 789 (or even 788, depending on J Class demand) and then, upgrade HND.

Has LAN indicated a wish to fly to LHR? It would not surprise me if they did, because the two countries have traditionally good relations, with good trading links.

Don't forget, BA also has two more 77Ws coming soon; 'STBK (LN 1204 - just about to be rolled out at PAE, according to Matt Cawby) and 'STBL (LN 1221).
