It was posted in this forum that BA's revenue B772's could be flying into Austin as early as this January as the company begins to MOD their fleet of B788's in California.
At that time, it was perported the B772's would be replaced by BA's B789's as soon as they become available. The B789's cargo hold is slightly larger than that of the B772/772ER (5400 cu.ft. vs. 5330 cu.ft.). And the difference in number of passengers (three classes) is roughly 20 between the B789 and B772 (B772 being the larger).
