Very happy for you!

But how so - are you full fare (as suggested by Lobengula - I forgot about that!) or do you have status you've been hiding until now?

Or if I shoud wait for OLCI since I'm flying CPH-LHR and can do the OLCI 28 hrs before the rest on the LHR-LAX flight?

Good morning.

Yes I paid for the ticket So have understood thats why I could do the reservation 72 hours before and pay extra. But soon silver after my next trip to Colorado in jun.

seating question

Am I right in thinking that 4E&F in a 3 class LGW 777 (that look like they're up against the bulkhead) have direct access to the aisle without climbing over anyone's feet? Mrs pfd has short legs and doesn't want to get trapped!!

Yes they may have. Before you pay to reserve them though you should be aware that the aircraft config may change at T-24 and a row 5 may appear .

LGW has two 3 class 777's with row 5, one is always on the MLE route and the other one could turn up on any of the other 3 class routes. You will not know this until OLCI opens.

And even on this route Expertflyer (and I assume BA's seat map) shows it with only rows 1-4. Does that mean that row 5 will always be available for free at T-24 and that anyone who has paid for row 4 on the assumption that it will be "easy access" is in for a nasty shock.

Think if you're seeing 4E&F it must be one of the YMM* aircraft (ie. one of the ones with row 5). On the VII* aircraft there are no centre seats in row 4, row 3 is the last row of the forward CW cabin.

Where are you travelling to? MLE or SSH?
Of the other routes that get the YMM* aircraft, it tends to be TPA, KIN, MBJ, ANU and PUY (on Sundays and Mondays)

MLE but managed to snaffle a window pair when OLCI opened.

UVF saw quite a lot of YMM* in February. The 20 round trips were as follows:

40J 13
48J 6
4-class(!) 1

How do revenue management cope when they don't know until T-24 how many J seats there are?

Welcome to FT. jmw2323 !
I would check seatguru.com and see but for myself i really prefere the 744 since you DO have the upstairs seating.
