With only three major US airlines, the need to offer plenty of seats up front has declined. However, AA still has twenty 77Ws to spread to around to capture as much premium traffic as possible throughout their network. With the Brazilian economy is the gutter, AA has taken some 77W out of the market and will use it on MIA-EZE. (Rather interesting choice due to the Argentinian economy.) But this management is a bit more flexible than I think most of us thought. Originally all 772s would be converted to a 37J/252Y configuration but AA changed plans and will keep 13 772s in a 45J/225Y configuration. I expect these 13 will primarily be flying to LHR where AA can balance out the need for F on MIA/JFK/ORD/DFW/LAX-LHR. (W will be added later.) The introduction of W is going to have an impact on J sales and pretty much makes up for the loss of premium seats.

Pretty interesting recent article in Skift about what type of plane configuration would be optimal in different scenarios for an airline, and the example being used is a 777-300:

I've recently noticed that starting the day before my DFW-GRU flight (award ticket in J) in early November, all DFW-GRU flights have been zeroed out in F, A, and P. Would you agree that this a sign of an impending equipment change for the route?

While unsurprising, given the state of Brazil's economy, the change, presumably to a 77D or a 788, given the zeroed F inventory, would be disappointing. I was looking forward to trying the 77W J product, which I prefer over the 77D or 788 product (based on my experiences on the 788 and on CX J). Do you think this equipment change gives me leverage to ask AA to open up U space on either the JFK or MIA flights, which are still being shown as 77W? If not, I guess one can hope that DFW-GRU will be the launch route for the new 789, as it was for the 77W a few years ago!

I'd be surprised if DFW-GRU saw the 787-9 due to the planned configuration of 28J/21W/228Y. With the current state of the Brazilian economy, I'd say the "low J" 772 is more likely. The 787-9 is better before routes longer than 12 hours. If GRU sees the 787-9, it'll be on LAX-GRU.

Whoops I got this wrong. DFW-GRU must be doing very poorly up front and the 77W is there for the lift in the rear. This being said, I expect once the 777 CIP is complete, the 289 seat 772 will take over most routes under 12 hours with the 787-9 operating predominately to Asia, along with the A350-900.

Booked my daughter and her fiance on ORD-FCO AAnytime business award for their honeymoon. But it is the old 777 configuration. What are the odds that this route would be getting the new config prior to October this year?

If slim to none - is F far superior to business on this plane? I have read negative reviews on the current business seat they have...of course I'm sure it is better than coach! But if I pay extra miles for F at this point and the new config happens - then couldn't they possibly be downgraded back to business as there aren't as many F seats? Ugh

Thank you!

Sorry, but you are in the wrong thread. You are referring to the 777-200 reconfiguration. This thread is for the 777-300 (77W) equipment/routes.

There is no F on the refurb 777-200.

Thanks - I thought AA was showing me the 777-300. I will repost correctly.

Sept 6 Positioning Flights

In order to position the 77W for the LAX-HKG service commencing on Sept 6, AA will be running equipment from the DFW-LHR run on Sept 5 to LHR. The Equipment will then route on a one-time basis as follows on Sept 6:

AA101: LHR-JFK
AA131: JFK-ORD

Anyone know where the 77Ws are going this winter? With the intro of 789 on DFW-GRU and removal of 2nd LAX-LHR, it feels like there is some slack compared to the current schedule?

Likely maintenance.

AA pulled the 77W from the GRU-MIA early run on Wednesday night (8/31) and replaced it with the legacy 200 (no lie flats for you !) The Brasileiros expecting lie flats in J were not too happy since the replacement was short in notice.

JFK-LHR flights: which 77W? (to merge)

Hello

First time poster on the AA forum. Basic question for you guys...
Which of the JFK-LHR flights are on the 77w or updated 772?
Looking at an ex dub return to JFK which would be our first business flight ever! Trying to find the best combination and reading all the negativity on the BA club product (I have zero status to select the coveted upper deck) I am thinking that AA may be the better choice. All advice appreciated
Cheers

They all are. You can easily see it when booking. The one that says "77W" is the 77W, the refurbished 777-200 is coded "772."

Note that there is a chance that the refurbished 772 has a chance of being subbed to a non-refurbished one. It's not necessarily likely, but it can happen.

The 77W is on AA100/107, the rest are 772.

Even when compared to the upper deck, the AA seats are far better (and so is the food). So, enjoy!

There are not infrequent substitutions of "777" ("next generation business class" angled flat seats 2-3-2 business seats, because of the fleet of 47 777-200ERs, less than half have been refurbished to "772" (currently mostly Zodiac "Concept D" all aisle access Business Suites with malfunctioning privacy dividers and some "motion over the ocean" instability of seat pairs "joined at the head", and only one B/E Aerospace Super Diamond Solo converted hull - the fleet will presumably end up half and half).

The Cirrus equipped "77W" 777-300ER is superior.

(They are both superior to the BA Club World seat, even the Stretched Upper Deck or A380 seats. I use BA when it's significantly cheaper.)

Currently, JFK-LHR (100), LHR-JFK (107) are 77W.
