My guess is some younger B772ERs could get the newest CW product, but this may not be before the B773 fleet has been completely competitively re-configured.

Sadly I don't see this happening. Think this way, the newest airplane will get the [[i]new new CW with doors] products, that would be including A350, B787 and B77W, plus A380. By the time all those aircraft is delivered and converted, the B772 mentioned in 16+10 LHR refit would be finished of current LGW reconfiguration and would be in the radar of being retired.


I am sure what you suspected could be plausible. But as things stand if all rumours are true, we might see B772 keep the current CW product until retired. Thus we may have 2-3 different CW products in LHR for ages to come...

Which B772ER routes from LHR would benefit the most from having newest CW and 10 abreast Y in terms of additional revenues. I can see this happening prior to B788s and B789s getting newest CW simply because there must be a better revenue opportunity, but only with the younger aircraft. Or perhaps none of them are young enough.

G-VIIV is on her way home to LGW, the first 4-class 10-breast refit in SIN. Due to land at 6.15pm approx.

Question: with new economy and premium economy seats fitted and newest Club World? (coffin style) seat fitted with the same white and grey shell and Panasonic TV....

Will F class get a seat spruce up? Or remain the same hard shell, tired hard product?

I believe, the only noticeable differences in F and J will be new IFE and a deep clean.

I'd be surprised if J wouldn't have he more modern finish on the seats, in line with the 787/a380, and as seen in the LGW 3 class config...

I thought the J cabin had replaced newer versions of the Club seat, like on the 787? Looks more grey, whereas the existing shells looked more cream? I'm sure I saw that in the photos taken and shown on FT of the LGW refitted aircraft.

  • It appears a new configuration is out for the YMMx (LGW 3-class) with crew rest.
  • Showing (32J 48W 256Y), a loss of 4 WTP but gain of 4 WT.
  • This is most likely due to crew rest? It is showing on the CPT/LAS routes in Dec 2019 at least. Presumably on YMMC routes from when it is configured in May.
  • As still 32J in the forward section so unsurprisingly it's likely to be normal CW (not new seats unless same density).

The slight difference could also be attributed to the position of toilets (and the related costs of relocating them) as they differ from the VIIx aircraft.

Also entirely possible, and more likely by the sounds of it, but definitely a different configuration nonetheless.

Can anyone confirm if the bassinet have moved on the 4 class refurbs in WTP from the side to the middle?
I was moved out of GJK to EFG overnight ...

After a short break in the re-configurations, G-VIIW is currently heading east over Germany as BA9179 to Singapore for her refurb. I know due to RR 787 issues etc. BA have had a long haul frame shortage however they really are taking their time to getting all the LGW planes done!

The current 12 B777-300ERs were confirmed to be the first planes to be refitted with new CW seats from 2020. (Might be longer now the deliveries for new builds are a year later than planned.

As for the 777-200s before then unlikely. Certainly not for Gatwick. Some of the newer LHR frames may do at some point but almost certainly not for another couple years.
