British Airways Boeing 747-436 G-BNLF was withdrawn from service at London Heathrow this morning after arriving as BA78 from Accra. This aircraft was the last to fly with an “Old First” cabin meaning this cabin is now obsolete and had twice had its service life extended following the B747-400 incident at Johannesburg and the B777-200ER incident at Las Vegas. The aircraft positioned London Heathrow – Cardiff-Wales for component recovery early in the afternoon as BA9170. This reduces the active Boeing 747-400 fleet to 39 aircraft.
