LIDO 65/7 Minima

Just out of curiously sake, that really doesn't have any bearing on day to day operations, but
Some lido charts have a 65/7 minima, which is for aircraft with less than 65 m wingspan and less than 7m difference between the flight path of the wheels and gs receiver.

So the b777-300 ER has just under 65 m wingspan, but it's not in any manual regarding the wheels/gp difference.....who can be a clever clogs and tell me how to figure out if you can use this minima or not?

Basically, if you are not in an A380, you can use those minima!

I'm digging up this three-year-old thread because I was talking about this subject to some colleagues the other day. I'm flying the A332 and our FCOM clearly states that the vertical difference in flight path between the GS antenna and the MLG is 23', which equals just over 7m. I know it's just bean counting, but was wondering how this is dealt with in other companies.

As far as i know in my former, now defunct airline, the A330 couldn’t use the 65/7 minima.
