B777 Variant

Is there any way of determining which B777 variant (e.g. 77M) we are currently due to fly on for a booking in July?

A fairly rudimentary way to do it, but I'm not aware of another, is to look at the seat map for the flight you're on (select/change/purchase a seat) and then match this to the variants listed on this website in the Wiki or use a site such as The BA Source. ExpertFlyer is also very handy for seat maps, do you have a subscription?

Here's the link in question. Should be fairly easy for you to figure out for yourself which variant you're booked on by the seat map in MMB.

Just be mindful of aircraft changes which seem to be legion these days judging on my OH's roster. Half her trips in March and Feb moved from 787-10 to 787-9 and from 77E to 77W and viceversa, plus config changes between 77Es.

As 1Aturnleft has noted, if you go into MMB and into the seat selection, you should see the info as shown below

In this case, 77W equates to the 777-300ER which has been refitted with the new Club Suites (which on the link 1Aturnleft provided, would match the layout of the 77H, so i'm not sure if they are actually the same variant).

Frankly, an indication of what plane you might fly on in July should be taken with several pinches of salt, it only being late March at present.

Thanks to everyone who replied. Of course I realise that there could be an Aircraft change in the next 4 months and I could do a dummy booking to see what the current configuration is. We are booked in F and it is a 777 with 8 seats so, a 200ER or a 300ER with the new first seat. I was just curious if it was possible to see which it is.

You could do a dummy booking for your flights in club world. When you get to the part about selecting seats, if the front club world cabin has 3 rows of seats, rows 5-7, itís a 777-300, and if it has rows 5-7 plus a lone 8K in the front club world cabin itís a 777-200 model.
