Details of an aircraft

Hello, where can I find details of a 777 aircraft I flew on recently?
Details such as the model variant, tail number, date built, date first flown, number of seats by cabin/class etc
All I have is the flight number and date: BA172, departed JFK on 2nd Jan; landed LHR 3rd Jan.

Thanks.

That service was flown by G-VIIS, but for more detailed analysis I would suggest either looking at Flightradar24 or using the Plane Finder app which provides good detail on the aircraft history.

FlightRadar24 should be able to give you most of the details.

I use Flight Radar, which is normally one of the first results on Google too

Once you have the registration (which you now have), for some of the other detail you may need to go to sites like www.airfleets.net or www.planespotters.net (or others).

For future reference, if a flight is too long ago to show on FR24, then London Heathrow & Gatwick Airports has a good archive of movements at LHR and LGW.

There's also lots of information on the UK Civil Aviation Authority's aircraft register 'G-INFO'. Just scroll down, pop the registration, 'VIIS', in the appropriate box, tell the site you are not a robot and you're away!
Search the G-INFO aircraft register | Civil Aviation Authority (caa.co.uk)

Flighty app is really nice has a sleek interface and also a convenient feature to show you where your incoming aircraft is coming from.

How have you found airfleets vs planestoppers to be?

I'm not a regular user of either, so I can't say anything useful.
