I was checking the Airfax site and came across with this 77E available:

  • B777-200ER Aircraft available for sale and lease-back. RR Trent 892 engines. Manf. 1998. Contact information
  • B777-200ER Aircraft available for sale or lease. RR Trent 884 engines. Manf. 1998. MTOW=650Klb. Contact information
  • B777-200ER Aircraft available for sale or lease. GE90-90B engines. Manf. 1997. Contact information
  • B777-200ER Aircraft available for sale or lease. RR Trent 892B engines. Manf. 1998. Contact information
  • B777-200ER Aircraft available for immediate ACMI lease in all-economy or two-class pax configuration. PW4090 engines. Manf. 1997. MTOW=290.4t. Contact information


  • Do you happen to know what carrier is getting rid of she?

    Certainly this plane will be easily placed as several operators are looking for that type with GE engines. I can think of OS that is planning to add 4 or so. AM was also interested to add 1 or 2, etc.

    It might be Saudi Arabian. They are receiving 777-300ERs and if my search on airfleets.net went well, their 777-200ERs are the only ones manufactured that year which have that version of the GE90.

    It is China Southern, I believe. The aircraft in question will be B-2056, MSN 27525 which was delivered in March 1997. China Southern also has five 777-200 non-ER sister-ships for sale.

    I´d say China Southern as well, they are trying to get rid of their 772s for quite some time. I remember sale offers 2 or even 3 years ago.
    SV is a possible source also, but I thought the incoming 77Ws are replacing the 741s and 743s first, with 77Es replacement to follow later. The engine type in the ad is 90B, which points to China Southern however, as SV have 92Bs.
    I wonder who is trying to sell the 3 RR-powered ERS. SQ, EK, or both? EK have 892s, SQ 884s.

    This plane is probably too advanced in age for AUA as the 767s to be replaced are just a few years older. They have one 772 from 1997, but would they aquire another one for just half a dozen years before its due for the desert? I´d expect they look for some planes built in the 2000s.

    Interesting. Emirates currently have six 777-200ERs in the fleet. All of them were delivered 1997-1998 which is pretty old by Emirate's standards. I think these are going to be replaced by some of the 777-300ERs they have on order - but not sure of the intended time-frame.

    Singapore Airlines is (slowly) transferring some 777-200ERs to Scoot, but I believe that most of them will eventually be replaced by the A330-300s - they have 15 (or so) on order.

    Overall I'm not sure - could be either.

    Are these the same engines of the 2 new-builds that AM operates and the 2 ex-RG birds that AM operates? I know AM's triple sevens have GE engines, but I don't know if they are the exact same rating.

    It was reported elsewhere that an AM's evaluation team returned from China few days ago in order to check an older 777 available. It might be either:

  • 27524 55 777-21BER 28/02/1997 B-2055
  • 27525 66 777-21BER 18/04/1997 B-2056


  • The airline is interested in 2 T7s; apparently they come as replacements for current 762s and as interim solutions for the 787 delays.
