Just done a dummy booking for 4 Oct to YYZ - the flight details give the aircraft type as BA00093 but the seat map is 1-2-1 so presumably A350.

I appreciate that at the moment we donít know what MAD service the A350 will operate, but, does anyone have an idea when it will be confirmed? Or is there any Ďinsideí information on this?

Thanks

Just loaded in MMB and we are seated in 1E,F. Middle two: I was about to switch to two windows 1 & 2 A and Mrs ACS insists we sit together so we can chat...
ill keep any eye on things and perhaps she will change her mind once some reviews come out but at this point it looks like Iíll be ďchattingĒ or rather yelling with Mrs ACS in the middle SMH

Delivery date from Airbus are confirmed with a 30 days notice. MAD flights dates will then be confirmed. So at worst expect mid July.

The LHR-MAD BA460/461 flight numbers conflict with what the blogs are reporting, which is the first rotation of the day...
