The very first BA 77W is about to land after its very first flight. Big thank you to Bill and Krisz, my friends who made this shot possible.

Great bird and the livery look good on it, just think that the edge of the door cutting through the ITI of BRITISH makes it hard to read.

Not sure where but they should shift it a bit.

BA should put their name over door 2. So why is it called a 77"W"? What's the "W" mean?

Great photo. I can now see why this registration was chosen. (BA at the top of the fin is unique)
I do think this new a/c would have given an opportunity for BA to put some branding on the underside of the fuselage. The BA apeedwing maybe ?

Simply gorgeous.

I like the long fuselage of the 777, with its clean lines, giving it a sleek look. The BA livery is elegant & regal looking.
The close proximity to the threshhold gives the impression of the 777 hovering.

Wow...I was standing behind you taking the same pictures that day. Were you the guy talking to the other guy in the Porsche? My wife and I took the Boeing tour and grabbed a few shots of the planes landing. Small world that I came upon your great picture today on this site.

Someone asked about the seating.... This aircraft will be the first to have the new World Traveler (Economy), World Traveler Plus (Premium Economy) installed. It will have the current Next Generation Club World seating, and the New First product. It will be delivered to BA with the WT and WT+ seating already installed as factory fit, then go to CWL (Cardiff) to have Club and First installed.

I'm surprised there are no winglets on this new aircraft.

The BA titles were exactly on the same place on the 777-200, and I never heard anyone about it then... Obviously it has no winglets,like any 777, but it has the raked wingtips of the 200LR and 300ER (and 777F) which I find more beautiful anyway.
Finally, I want to repeat the question: what does the 'W' in '77W' stand for?

To my fellow dutch man below, I also checked the BA 772 pictures to see if the position of the words was any different, but obvious also saw it is almost exactly the same.

So I guess that because of the length of the aicraft the picture will be from a little further away and so will make the door edge more apparent in the 't' of British.

It seems that some of the others here noticed the same thing.

"W" stands for WOW, the reaction when you're close to it and realise how long it really is

Great shot. Anyone know when this is due to be delivered? Has British Airways gone for Rolls Royce Trent or GE engines? And what routes are they likely to use this a/c on, I presume maybe the LHR - SIN type route, which they currently use a 777 for one of the two daily flights.

I'd always wondered how would a 777-300 look in BA livery. Thank you for posting such shot :) Mohammad

The 77W is the code used for 777-300ER planes. ER stands for extended range. The plane is a little bit different then the 777-300, like longer wingspan for example and of course range.

To my fellow Jordanian man; perhaps, but I myself found the distance to hardly matter, and in fact, if anything, make the effect worse from shorter distances.
And then: of course 77W means a 773ER, I wanted to know: why a 'W'? What does that mean? 'Wordliner' maybe?

I'm an Airbus A320/330 man myself, but that is one very pretty looking aircraft. Hopefully I get to fly aboard this beauty one day...

The 'W' in 77W stands for ER as in
E = 5th letter of alphabet
R = 18th letter of alphabet

5+18 = 23 = W

Okay. Being a nitpicker I'd say a new problem arises: 77W then stands for 77(7)ER, and not necessarily a 77-3-ER. But the little sum makes sense, so thanks anyway.
