BA193 - What 747s to look out for

Mon Jun 26, 2017 12:27 pm

I'm due to fly BA193 in J class upper deck at the end of August. Currently the route is being flown by 744s. As opposed to 77Ws for the last 4 times I've flown it.
BA's fleet seems somewhat chaotic to me, so I am appealing to anyone whose up to speed with them.

What ships have the newer, more modern IFE systems? I know the CIV* fleet have been operating the majority of the flights with the odd BNL* thrown in.
Is is the CIV* fleet that has the upraded IFE?

The one I got last year from MIA to LHR had the older IFE and was not so enjoyable.

Cheers.

Better asked over on the other forum I suspect where the IFE geeks hang out.
