Doing a quick trip to BA this weekend and just got alert of an aircraft swap for the return on Sunday night. Although app says 772, seat map is 773 and it looks like the Saturday flight down from IAH is indeed 773 (prior segments are SEA-SFO and SFO-IAH). Business saver available on both IAH-EZE and EZE-IAH for anyone with miles to burn who wants to try the new seats. 😎

I just noticed the SEA-SFO and SFO-IAH legs are empty so is this a new delivery with the inaugural passenger flight being IAH-EZE?

does the seat map indicate whether all seats have been installed? maybe this plane is being test-run with just the seats the contractor has been able to deliver so far...

UA 2770, SEA-SFO, delayed due to aircraft maintenance, arrived gate 4 h 37 min late. It was an empty flight; no one was impacted by the delay.

Looks like it's going to Hawaii before the SFO - IAH - EZE turn. Some lucky J passengers on UA 300/396 today / tonight

Would love them to put this bird on this route. Hoping my IAH-EZE in August gets this equipment change. A guy can hope right?

I'm hoping the 77W makes it to the GRU routes!

Latin America seems to get the shaft when it comes to new equipment or will be the last to get it. But would be nice to run the 77W on ORD to GRU as IIRC is the longest routing to GRU on UA metal?

Hmm, link does not show any HI flight in there; maybe a last minute change last night?

Interesting yeah looks like a last minute change. Should've posted a screenshot!

Oddly FlightAware does list it as a 77W for UA 300 yesterday but with a huge delay. Maybe they swapped 77W frames due to the delays to prevent this one from being swapped out.

On my phone so can't really dig further at the moment

7.5 hours late ... I'm not sure "lucky" is the word those passengers would be using.

That turn operated with ship 2131, not the new 2139. Ship 2139 is still on the schedule to fly IAH-EZE tonight.
