We’re booked on this route for July 23. A 777 currently scheduled to operate on our dates.

Indeed, it seems BA have not rostered the A380 on the YVR route in 2023 so far! Obviously, that may or may not change.

I have a booking on BA84 in November. I’m not sure what plane it is but I think from the seat map it is a 777 as last time I flew on the A380 there were 16 seats to choose from here only 8. Can anyone confirm?

That would probably be a 777 but without a date obviously we can't look this up. But the way you can find out is to make a dummy booking in say WTP, look at the seat selection map, then look at Aerolopa to find out what WTP cabin fits in terms of first and last row number.

Ah, thank you so much. I am hoping they may release a Business Class seat, fingers crossed.
