The seat plan matches the 787-10. See https://www.aerolopa.com/ba-type-781 or Seating guide: Boeing 787 Dreamliner

Can anyone offer an explanation on why the seat assignments of my wife and I keep changing?

We're flying BA112 JFK > LHR and our allocated seats were Club Suites 8E and 8F.

We're travelling with an infant so wanted to switch to 8F and 8K (the bassinet position).

For the past few days I've been switching us over to 8F and 8K only to log back in the following morning to find us back in 8E and 8F and then the process repeats..

As a result of a flight cancellation hubby and I are now flying BA204 from MCO to LHR on 21/01. Manage my booking shows a 777 but the seating has me confused. It shows rows 2,5,6 and 7 then rows 10 to 14 in respect of club world (no mention of rows 1,3 or 4) We generally like to be as far forward as possible with hubby facing forward however I’m reluctant to select rows 2 and 5 (which are available) in case there are rows 3 and 4 and we end up 3 rows apart if that makes sense. I’m pretty sure all seats are facing forward so happy for us to be in front/behind each other rather than in the centre.

Club suites. White seats are empty If youre having issues with seating plan on ba.com then Ive found a good fix is to move into empty seats using your booking ref on rj.com and these seat selections will then stick in the BA system

Hi, I have 2 twin seats booked in WT to JFK next month. If I was to change to the last row of twin seats at the very rear of the plane, would these seats still be able to recline or not?

Thank you!

Thank you! Maybe a daft question but would these seats also have a window with being at the very rear?

Your best bet is probably to go to aerolopa.com, identify the configuration currently planned to operate your specific flight, and check the window situation on the relevant plan.

Of course, configurations can change, sometimes very shortly before the flight.

Just booked some flights for next week LHR-NBO. The flight is pencilled in to be operated by a 77M airframe. Have looked on Aerolopa but a bit unsure if 5K (CS) has any windows going by the diagram. Could someone confirm please?

Many thanks

It does, but it's a reduced number compared to, say, 6K - it has one fewer (I can't remember if that means it has one of two though!)

5K is a great seat. While there is only one full window to look out from, it is well positioned relative to the seat.

Happy to help. One other plus i noticed is 5K had barely any foot traffic. You really are in your own little world.
