Since we are few weeks away from the entry into commercial service of British airways latest baby, the Boeing 777-300ER. I would like to know if anyone has any idea of what the new World Traveller Plus and World traveller seats will look like? I also heard that they will be a flight in 2 weeks out of LHR to test all the onboard system with about 200 staff acting as passengers for about 3 to 4 hours.12 Aug 2010
Just an update to say that there will be a test flight tomorrow with about 200 staff to test the aircraft equipments. Also internal communications to the crew state that the new seats will equip all the future A380, B787 and all the 18 B777 with the General Electric engines (might be the reason why they have not updated the IFE for a long time). There is no plan to convert the B767, B747 and the B777 (Rolls Royce). First commercial flight should happen next week if tomorrow’s flight is OK.25 Aug 2010
Perhaps in stead of just replacing the engines BA should think of changing the engine oils that exclude the additive organ phosphate TCP (tricresyl phosphate) so that the cabin air does not potentially poison the passengers and crew !!
That would be progress indeed!!26 Aug 2010
