Thanks, neither of those so should be fine ^

Which plane do I have as BA Source doesn't seem to be telling me.

CW rows 10-15 so a 777-200 variant.

It'll be one of these, won't it?

Why don't you look at the seat map for one of the other cabins to work out which?

I am booked in CW on a 4 class plane but on a flight which has no F service (ex LHR). The front cabin is not showing as CW seating in MMB. Is there any likelihood that will change (presumably it''s load dependent ?) and if it might when is it likely to happen? Is availability then a free for all, or will status asist ?

I believe the norm is that the F cabin, with a CW service, will only be used when there are more CW passengers than seats otherwise it will remain closed. Can I help you has stated this numerous times but I am sure IIRC that status then plays a part. (perhaps a staffer can comment more here?)

It could of course change as always if there is an aircraft substitution.

What route are you on and when is your flight?

How good/bad are the window seats in the final row of economy (40A/40K) on a 77X?

LHR-GIG BA0249 on 7/11 in CW, App shows a 3-class 777, I've currently got 1A and 1B selected.

Basource shows that flight is usually 12F/48J/32W/127Y.

Any ideas?

Are 1A & 1B a good choice? Most of the front CW cabin has gone, but the second 2 row cabin seems virtually empty - can't decide if that means it would be a good choice or best avoided.

That’s the wrong aircraft type, what date are you travelling?

The LHR-GIG service will switch to 787 this coming Sunday until March. Count yourself very lucky as the old 772 are very dated. Service is from the front so seats in the rear cabin may not get their first choice, depending on loads. I think the front row is your best bet.

Morning

I’m hoping someone can help, I’m flying to ANU in January on a “high J” LGW 777-200 and wanted to book the bassinet seats in the forward CW cabin (row 4, seats E/F) - obviously by waiting for check in to open.

However, according to EF, 4F has now been taken.
2 questions
  1. should I pay & book my seats now or sit tight and wait for check in to open. The chances of getting 2 seats together is slowly diminishing.
  2. Do the crew start the bar/meal service from row 1 or from row 1 and row 10 where the galley is? I.e if I book row 10 will I be first to be served or one of the last, or shall I book seats in the forward cabin to be one of the first served.

Generally bassinet seats won't open until 3 days out if they are available. The 'High-J' phrase is commonly referred to as the 747's which have 86 J seats, and of course LHR based as there are no BA 747's at LGW. I see from your previous posts it's a 3 class 777 on the way out and a 4 class 777 on the way back. If that is the case then:

1) If you want to sit together and you feel your chances are diminishing then it really is your call whether to pay or not or take a chance at online check in which may not have much left. Given ANU and the Caribbean is in high demand in January then that may be something to consider?

2) As for the service order I have no idea but if you post on the thread below then I am very sure you will get a fairly quick answer by one of the helpful cabin crew members who post here and who can clarify the way it should be done.

Thanks for the reply.
I wasn’t sure how to differentiate between a high WT 3 class and a high CW 3 class - so I just called it a “high J”.

I think for the time being i’ll sit tight and hope for the best.

What’s the general consensus though - window seats or middle seats?
Is there a thread for CW 777 seats?

It's really a personal choice. Middle pairs face backwards and your right next to each other whereas the windows you will be in the ying yang position and facing each other. The latter would be my personal preference and of course nothing beats looking out of the window at 35,000 feet! (although I appreciate you will be across water for most of your flight)

There is lots of info in the BA Forum Dashboard on Club World and even a raw google search will throw up lots of pictures, trip reports etc.
