Hi all, I see that BA's 777-300's are all meant to be upgraded premium economy seats by now but Seatguru is showing BA15/16 as a 777-200 (even though the BA website says that the former services the SYD-SIN-LHR route). Does anyone know whether this route has the upgraded premium economy seats yet? I am asking for family visiting over Christmas. Thanks!

BA15/16 is operated by B777-300ER (B77W),  with the "upgraded" PE (World Traveller Plus) seats. I wouldn't trust Seatguru. It has been known not to be accurate.

@RBT is Expert Flyer more up to date or is it relying on Seat Guru in the background?

I would say Expertlyer is more accurate. It shows the seat map of the aircraft operating the flight, including seats that have been taken. From the seat map (row numbers/lay out) you can identify the type of aircraft, by comparing with seat guru.
