    Curious as I’m flying to MRU in September in J and the cabin (at least for seats) is pretty much full.

    If I’m not wrong the CS 777 has more J class than the old CW. Would this be a reason why BA might operationally move to a CS to allow for more capacity?

    I know it’s ages away but curious if that would be a factor. Here’s hoping.

    I’ve definitely seen flights at LGW on the CS bird that had more than 32 seats showing as occupied quite a few days out. So one would imagine they do try and target that config on flights that are busy up front and quieter in economy

    That said MRU is a night flight out of LGW so for aircraft rotation reasons I’d guess it isn’t the best flight vs a USA or Caribbean turn which all roughly leave and arrive back around the same time give or take

    lol, not likely, more like scheduled d check maintenance is taking a couple of the Lgw 777’s out

    252 in y on the Lgw birds vs 134 that’s a lot more revenue
