But I guess you mean are 4 Class LHR running upgraded cabin?
All 3 777-200's (4 Class) have new cabins
15 GE powered 777-200ER's (4 Class) have new cabins

9 RR powered 777-200ER (4 Class) do not.

And 7 GE powered 777-200ER's (4 Class) do not, but they are LGW based.

For a couple on a 777 (most likely to be a 777-200 with the toilets in the front): Would 1EF be better (maybe noise from the toilets) or 4EF (galley noise)? 2EF are already taken.

Which are the best seats for couple on a 77F daytime flight (LHR->GIG)?
Currently have 10A and 10B.
Best to switch for the honeymoon seats (e.g. 11E and 11F)?

Do you want a window and aisle and be looking at each other or sitting side by side, only you can decide?

What is the reason for the 77F config? I've flown it 3-4 times in F recently and I'm always perplexed by the huge empty space behind 2K ... surely there's space for an additional F seat there? It strikes me as an extraordinarily poor use of space to have almost 30 sq ft of dead space on a 777...

Moscow - London 9th December

I have booked on this flight from Moscow to London on 9th December (BA0232) in World Traveller. Is it possible to know if this would be a refurbished plane with the larger screens on would this be an older style plane.

Also on the outbound flight, I'm booked on an A321 to Moscow. Does anyone know how the entertainment/seat compares to the 777 service on this route?

thanks

The A321 has a similar sized screen and the same content as the new 777 IFE.

Flying LHR-SIN on the BA15 in WTP. 23 J+K.

22 A+B are available too. Is that better?
It is behind a door, could be cold or maybe no window at A?
But then there seems to be a lot of legroom.

Wife and I flying home from our honeymoon 7/13 LGW-JFK BA 2273 in CW on 77A, and I have no idea what seats to choose for us both. It looks like the middle two seats are all taken, or not both open. What do you all recommend we choose? Plenty of dual window/aisle seats open in both cabin sections, though my preference (sheepishly) is to always turn left after boarding. We've defaulted into 2J/K, but I'm wondering if 4J/K would be better? Thanks for the insight!

Usually fly J on AA B777 or A330, so I'm not used to these cramped quarters....

On the 77W, those exit row seats (22AB and 22JK) seem to be in high demand. No window, and it can be cold by the door (which has been mentioned to me by more than one crew member - so it must be a well-known thing). I found that the window seat can seem a little claustrophobic if there's someone in the aisle seat, but this is actually all psychological because of the shape of the cabin sidewall and the door.

What are they running to EZE these days? Flying J but need to get off the plane sharp to make it across good airs to meet a very very tight schedule.

Seat 5B 10B??

Either, they are both next to the door we use for boarding and disembarkation, 5A or 5K would be my choice.

Don't worry, the randomness of EZE will more than even out any seating queries. The IFE is miserable though... CIHY has given you the right seats to go for

Is it one of the older IFE systems? tbh On a night flight like that it doesn't bother me too much. Have my iPad and earphone to drown out the noise.
