Flew up last night from the Gulf on the latest 777-300 style refurbed 777, was pleasantly surprised by how good it looked, having used these 777-200 aircraft on many of BA’s Gulf routes it was prior to the makeover looking v old and dated, but with the new interiors in all 4 cabins clearly has some flying years left to go. Service was friendly and efficient on this overnight sector.20 Nov 2012
VK – They aren’t range restricted to the Middle East – they can often be found on the East Coast (BOS, EWR) too. And once they are refitted with the same new First (“Prime”) product as elsewhere on the fleet, they may operate to JFK.
The real shame – as Bucksnet mentions – is that the rest of the 777 fleet won’t get the updated WT/WT+ product and new IFE package.21 Nov 2012
These aircraft are were built in 1995 – very well maintained, and perfect for the routes BA currently uses them on.
Probably another 5 or more years left in them, and so well worth an internal refit.6 Dec 2012
I cant agree more that the new cabins both look incredibly smart and the new entertainment system is a huge improvement on the old loop system (i annoyingly experienced last night on the way home from Nairobi), however why on earth do the armrests not go all the way up in the new world traveler seats? i find this ridiculous! New seats should be going forward in time not backwards! if the person in front of you has there seat reclined, the aisle arm rest doesn’t go up so its rather ungraceful to get out for the loo! Come on BA such a fundamental thing to overlook!17 Jan 2013
Flew back from DXB to LHR on club world on a refurb 777-200.,the IFE was a vast improvment than on a 747. Far larger selection and much improved menu. Had a look in world trav plus which looked really smart.17 Jan 2013
