Reply To: BA Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner on sale to Delhi

Back to Forum


Advice please.

I have a return LHR-MUMBAI in January Avios Booking in First for 2. Back in July the return on a Sunday was downgraded from 4 class 777 to 3 class 777 and our seats in First were downgraded to Club.

This week the outbound has now also been downgraded the same way (was thinking maybe the 777 was needed at Gatwick).

I was looking to switch to LHR-DEL instead to try First on the 787-9. Some days there is only 1 Avios seat. I have put in the normal (cash booking) engine to see how many seats are available in total. If you do so e.g. Delhi to London 31 Jan on 787-9 it lets you book 9 seats in First. I thought there were only 8? Am I losing it or have BA got the number of seats on the 787-9 wrong on their website as the seat map shows 8?
