BA to BA

Does anyone know if there any plans afoot to replace or upgrade the clapped-out 777s that BA uses to Buenos Aires? (Dirty cabins, panelling hanging off the wall, TV monitor too scratched to actually watch - both ways. The flights I took last week were the last straw.) Iíd rather not, but next time Iíll do Iberia on their new A350s.

Why is Buenos Aires an old 777 when Santiago is a newer 787?

Is there any link between the thread title and the content? I'm struggling to find one.

Oh, I got it. BA to Buenos Aires. It's a bit cryptic though.

An IB A346 is better than any BA777.

Isnít there a plan to refurbish/refit all of the 777-200ER over the next 2 years? 2 planes a month starting March?

theres a 777 refurb thread thatís worth taking a look at.

I'll be honest, whilst the decor was not falling apart like on the 777 to EZE I flew the 787 to and from Santiago last week and as the larger club cabin is over the wing and engines I found it very noisy.
A constant 77dB. I only have the figure since it was on my apple watch and haven't got other planes levels to compare to.

Or perhaps you could enjoy the gentle pun and try chilling out a little?

Well it is the only airline direct to EZE (the only other airline does it Norwegian with all sorts of issues and problems) so i do not think they will replace it any time soon.
