BA 777 World Traveler Seat Map Questions?

I am traveling MIA to DXB in a couple of weeks, I am Oneworld Saphire so I can choose my seats. I can't find an accurate seat map for the 777 anywhere. I have checked BA, Seat Guru and Seat Expert. I selected 22C, which the BA site says in an exit row, but all the other sites indicate that the exit row is row 26. Does this have to do with the NNCW, move behind WT+, or is that only on the 747?

Did I make the right choice?

Expertflyer is showing 26 as exit row and first row of WT. WT+ is always behind J on 777. There are several seating layouts on the 777 which day are you going on?

There's only a 22C in World Traveller on a 3 class 777 - but it ain't an exit row.

I depart on the Feb. 18th and return on March 2nd. I looked again and it still shows an exit row at row 22. In fact I have to check and accept exit row terms and conditions in order to get the seat at all. I can't find any version of any seat map that shows row 22 as an exit.

22C is an exit row on one of the three "A" class 777's. These aircraft mostly operate to the middle east, it make sense that it's a the aircraft on your DXB flight.

expertflyer shows the outbound exit row as 26 (WT 26-39) and the return as row 22 (WT 22-35) on the 106, 26 on the 104.

Hope this helps

I'm looking at my flights on ExpertFlyer at the mo and I'm confused. My flight to DXB on 22nd Oct shows a slightly different configuration in row 39 to my flight from DXB on 27th Oct, yet both are operated by a 777. Are there different seating plans for different 777's (apart from 3 and 4 class). FYI my flight on 22nd is at 1240pm, and my return on 27th is at 10am

With no vouching for the accuracy of the individual seat plans, the new site www.seatplans.com (see this thread) shows four different configurations of 777:-

I wouldn't lose sleep over it, they are not the dreaded A market aircraft, and even if they were, the only difference would be the screen size of the PTV. I took a look, and they're both 4 class ER's, one is going to be GE powered, the other RR.

Those links

I noticed that those links (above) aren't working, so perhaps this one will be more successful

The links in my previous post have now been fixed. Thanks for pointing that out! (Incompetence with UBB code.)

Interesting...

The seat map that expertflyer are showing for my flight to DXB with no seats down one one side in row 39 (A&B seats missing) isn't one of the above. Is this some new BA configuration or is the expertflyer map wrong?

IIRC they are in the process of removing the toilet in front of Door 4L from the 777s and adding in an extra couple of seats. I would guess that your outbound flight is on an aircraft yet to have the toilet removed.

You really don't want to be sitting that far back though, the back couple of rows of 3 by the windows are seem slightly narrower than the rest of the plane, I imagine to allow for the curvature of the fuselage.

That must be it because it has a big L there for lavatory. Interesting!
