Reply To: BA Gatwick B777-200 fleet upgrade anytime?

Back to Forum


As Gatwick is used for long haul leisure destinations I’m afraid it comes a poor second to the Heathrow fleet in terms of investment in updates. I beleive the 4 class 777s had a refresh recently but I am not aware of any plans to upgrade the 3 class fleet.

As for retirement and replacement, the oldest 777 in the fleet is coming up to its 20th birthday and many are 15 or younger so I imagine BA will squeeze every mile they can out of them before starting to pension them off.
