Seat map Boeing 777-200 “British Airways”. Best seats in the plane
British Airways operates 3 versions of Boeing 777-200 airplanes.
First cabin version of the Boeing 777-200 (772) Four Class
First version of Boeing 777-200 may transport 224 passengers in four classes.
First class includes 14 open suites. All these seats are standard. Only seats of the 1st row and the seats 4A and 4K have such a disadvantage as proximity of the lavatories and galley.
Club World class has 48 flat bed seats located in 6 rows per 8 seats in each.
The main disadvantage of the seats 10AB and 10JK is close location of the lavatories.
The seats 12A and 12K have misaligned windows.
The seats 15A and 15K have several advantages: in lying flat position these seats have a little more legroom and these seats have easier access to the aisle. These seats are reserved for passengers with infants as they have bassinet location. If these seats are not reserved they are released for other passengers 24 hours prior the flight. The only insignificant disadvantage of these seats are misaligned windows, but these seats have more than one window.
All E and F seats are ideal for those passengers who travel with partners.
The seats 15 E and 15F have bassinet location. Passengers with babies are often seated here. However, high-traffic area may be a problem.
World Traveller Plus has 40 seats located in 5 rows and have 2-4-2 configuration.
The seats of the 21st row are considered best seats on the airplane. Passengers of these seats will feel comfortable thanks to a lot of extra space for their legs. Plus the footrest is attached to these seats. As the tray tables are in the armrests, the width of these seats is reduced. Also there is no floor storage for these seats during takeoff and landing.
The only disadvantage of the seats of the 25th row is proximity of the lavatories. Entertainment equipment stored under the seats 25DEF limits the under-seat leg and storage space.
World Traveller section includes 122 standard seats.
The seats 26A and 26K are bad seats as they have restricted space for passengers’ legs because of the exit door protrusion. These seats have no windows. Among other disadvantages: lack of overhead storage and of floor storage during take-off and landing, reduced width of the seats and proximity of the lavatories.
All other seats of the 26th row, i.e. the seats 26DC, 26DEF and 26HJ have extra legroom but at the same time have the same disadvantages as seats 26A and 26K, namely: lack of floor storage during take-off and landing, reduced width of the seats. Also other passengers tend to gather here in order to visit lavatories.
The width of the seats 36A and 36K, 37A and 37K and 38A is reduced.
The seats 38ABC are considered bad seats as they do not recline and are located close to the lavatories.
The seats 38D and 39DEF have movable armrests. However, as under these seats is stored entertainment equipment these room is restricted for passengers’ legs and storage of personal items. Proximity of the lavatory and galleys may be bothersome.
Other passengers tend to bump into seat 38H.
The only disadvantage of the seats 39J and 39K is close location of the lavatories and galleys.

Passengers of these seats will feel comfortable thanks to the extra legroom. The seats 5A and 5K are considered bad seats as they do not have windows. Close location of the seats 5B and 5J to the galley and lavatories may represent a problem.
The second section has 2 rows of seats per 8 in each. The seats 10BD and 10GJ have extra space for passenger’ legs but proximity of the lavatories may be bothersome.

Passengers who are travelling with infants are often seated on the seats of the 15th row as they are equipped with Britax’s infant seats.
The seats 16C and 16H have extra legroom due to the missing seat in front. But the width of these seats is reduced a little as the armrests are immovable. Also these seats have no floor storage during takeoff and landing.
The seats 17A and 17K are missing windows.
The main disadvantage of the seats of the 23rd row is proximity of the lavatories.
The seats 26A and 26K have restricted space for passengers’ legs as the exit doors are thrusting out in this area. Among other disadvantages are: lack of floor storage during takeoff and landing and close location of the lavatories.
The other seats of the 26th row, namely 26 BC, 26DEF and 26HJ on the contrary have extra space for passengers legs but the disadvantages are the same: proximity of the lavatories and lack of floor storage during takeoff and landing.
