A Kept BA Promise – New First from LGWBack to Forum
Anonymous28 Apr 2012
So BA has kept their promise to launch new First flights from LGW in April. G-VIIU has been transferred to LGW and has already flown to Bermuda and Barbados this week. G-VIIA has gone to Cardiff for maintenance which hopefully includes the new WT, WT+ and First. This is great news, especially since G-VIIA flies to Barbados more than any other destination from LGW as it’s a 4-class 777-200ER.28 Apr 2012
Well, we’ll see what happens. But seeing how profitable BGI and BDA in particular are to BA, it would be prudent to get the latest products on these routes quickly.28 Apr 2012
This was from an earlier thread on the same subject:-
“The aircraft with NF is arriving into LGW on 25/04/12 and will be initially flown on the Bermuda and Barbados routes.
Aircrafts VIIA, VIIB and VIIF will be replaced by VIIU, VIIV and VIIW with all three having NF”28 Apr 2012
