A good discussion. It depends on the stage in life. As one gets older an upgrade for work trips is nice given the work load pressures at the other end. But I try to balance it so some are saved for holiday upgrades as well.

It wont be the 777-9 it wil be the 777-8 modified that has the legs for this trip and BA hasn’t ordered it. It will be between a modified 777-8 or A350-1000
