Hi all,

Just heard news that GA has wet leased F-OSYD from UU, a Boeing 777-300ER for crew training purposes.
This frame has landed in CGK today.

May 2013 - does that sound about right for GA to receive it's first B77W? Any idea on which routing it will operate?

The aircraft is leased with UU cockpit crews for the Umroh Operation between the end of March and the end of June. There are no crew training purposes involved. The aircraft will just fly a number of CGK JED roundtrips per week to reinforce Garuda's own 12 weekly B744 roundtrips on that route during this busy period.

Good to know. Makes sense. Wish it would stick around a bit longer, seeing I'll be in Jakarta in July. Any plans in amending the paint scheme, or are they leaving it as is?

Just noting, the information in the first post was only reflecting what was discussed in the forum circle.

Regards,
Hendra

What's the update with the delivery schedule ? The last thread on this matter in 2011 said they were due in 2012.

Quoting TC957 (Reply 3):

Garuda will take delivery of 4 B77Ws this year, the first two in June, and then one each in September and October. The first two aircraft will be used for twice daily CGK JED service, although they will redeploy to Japan for about a month in August - September. Frames 3 and 4 will operate 6 weekly nonstop CGK LGW services from the end of October onwards.

OK, thanks for that. I guess the first two will be around the l/n 1110 - 1115 region then.
