Aircraft Registration [BA2039 LGW-MCO, 23 May 2022]

Hi,

does anyone know if thereís a way to find out which aircraft registration is operating your flight? I know you can check flight radar, but that only generally shows the specific aircraft a day or two in advance.

thanks

You would more than likely be on an LGW configured 777. You can narrow this down by seeing how many seats are in the Premium Economy cabin. The Rolls Royce powered aircraft have 48 seats (5 aircraft) and the GE powered aircraft have 52 seats (6 aircraft).

Thanks, we are in WTP+ which has rows 10-15 so I think itís going to be a 77S, but intrigued to find out the registration?

How is best to find out the registration?

also concerned that G-YMMR has positioned into LGW today and really hoping we donít get an aircraft that has been refurbished.

G-YMMR seems to position to LGW most Fridays and tends to operate the Islamabad route for the weekend before heading back.

In that case its planned to be one of the RR versions. But this can change anytime and without warning.

Regarding YMMR, I imagine it positioned over to LGW due to YMME overnighting in KIN due to the ATC strike that occurred across Jamaica yesterday. Swaps with LHR based 777s do happen (and can be on reconfigured Club Suite aircraft as well) but I wouldn't worry too much about it at this point.

Yes, looking back a bit further, it has done MCO/TPA a couple of times.

One of the un-refurbed 5 has now been completed (G-YMMT) if another goes in soon, you'll have a very slim chance of having a non-refurbed plane subbed onto your flight.

Don’t focus on this as you will be disappointed, as advised check back the day before.
No, there are other ways for people with contacts in BA.

if you are on a 777 with WTP 10-15 it is a 77J and itíll be one of YMMB/C/D/E/F. They are all ĎLGW densifiedí aircraft so have seen some refurb work.

The 77S only was 3 rows of WTP.

We typically only see an aircraft reg on our rosters about 3 days out. So much can change and it isnít rare to see the reg change between allocation and report.

Oh thanks; thatís really helpful! I thought 77S covered YMMB/C/D/E/F and that 77J was YMMR/R/T/U?
