    We have an upcoming flight LHR – SAN with BA, originally this was an A350 out and 777 home, no F being sold so CW it was.
    Subsequently BA changed the aircraft to a 777 (how it always was in the before times before they stuck the 747 on the route) thinking F may be available now I checked on the BA site to see this………..

    Club world – Front cabinYou are selecting a flatbed seat at the front of the aircraft which was previously our First cabin and is now sold as Club World. Some elements of the product and service may differ between the First and Club World cabins.

    The front 2 rows are F configured ie 1 – 2 – 1

    Are they the big old F chairs still or have they fitted the entire cabin with CW seats?

    Thanks

    This is the new BA F with only 2 rows of seats, 1-2-1 – they are F seats not CW but obviously you only get CW service.

    Looking at random dates in October the 777 looks like a 3 class with no F on the dates I’m looking at with all seats in new CW Suites cabin

    From November plane switches to a 4 class 787 sold as 3 class so first 2 rows would be the “F” seat.

    Worth bearing in mind that these are unusual times in aviation and nothing can be considered definite so far in advance.

    In particular you would be travelling out in the winter 9i.e. using winter schedules) and returning in April when airlines introduce their summer schedules.

    So yes a 4 class 787 outbound at the moment with 8 F seats blocked out (might allocate seats depending on loads) and 777 on the return with 14 F seats but sold as 3 class. This far out a lot could change and different aircraft be put on or might even sell F seats on it again. The 777 could easily be switched back to a plane with the Club Suite product.

    I’m guessing they’ve got the First cabin not bookable as First so that should they change the type operating it again to one without First they don’t have downgrade compo issues to deal with.

    A couple of years ago I travelled on a club europe Avios ticket to Madrid and ended up in F on a 777!

    You might encounter the same if flying to Madrid next month with BA’s A380 (which will also be operating to Frankfurt).
