I'm thinking Varig, maybe they migght send one of their 777's into ORD or JFK. Pre speculation though.

Not much to say about new 777s to those airports. SFO gets SU, OZ, BA, UA and NH 777s. KE will resume 777 service their in Sep and AF may resume in Nov with 777 (now a 744). SQ will start 777s there 1Sep02 via ICN so that will be a new flight. LAX gets AA, CZ, LY, AF and UA 777s and probably won't get any more 777 carriers for a while. Perhaps MS will restart service there again or KE switch the ICN-NRT-LAX flight to a 772 for the winter? ORD gets KE, SQ, UA and AA 777s and BA in the winter. Possibility of OZ flying there with 777s since they will join Star Alliance and NH may return there with 777s as well ? Thinking of going there, Jan ? The777Man

Arsenal@LHR, Varig does not fly to ORD. Thier US route network includes LAX to/from GRU/NRT/NGO; JFK to/from GRU/GIG; MIA to/from GRU/GIG/SSA; and MIA-MAO-BEL-MIA. Varig's first 777s to the US would probably be used to LAX on the Asia routes.

Alitalia's first 777s will go to Tokyo and Buenos Aires. As more come to Alitalia, I would expect JFK to get them first in the US; then ORD and then MIA, followed by BOS and EWR. That's just would I expect.

UA's LAX-AKL route is now a 772, it was a 744! Not a new route but an extra 777 service!

Singapore Airlines is to operate its two-class 777-212ER aircraft to San Francisco via Seoul-Incheon from September I guess.

SIA already operates the 772ER to ORD thrice weekly.
