I know that for the people who love aviation this would not be an issue.....
But my question her is that for all you pilots... do you think that it's an upgrade from a 747 to a 777 or a downgrade ??? And are you happy if shifting into a 777 from a 747, or vis-a-vi ??

IMO: It would be a downgrade if only pertaining to the # of engines, but as we all know that the 777 is the technologically most advanced airplane.... it would be considered as an upgrade..... So just want to know your views....

I know quite a few pilots, and they have had this (sort of) question rammed down their throats quite a bit. Basically, if I have understood them right, then it isn't really the type they fly, but the routes they're on. One particular pilot at BAW, flying 747s, had the opportunity to go Concorde, but as the routings were extremely limited, he chose to stay on the lump. Sounds bizarre, but apparently that's quite normal. Having said that, had they given a 737 pilot the same option, I doubt he would've turned it down!! Again, another BAW driver was given his Captaincy if he went ATR42/72, but that would have meant ditching the Triple, which he really didn't, and understandibly, wanna do! As to your question though, it could be akinned to what car would Sir like today, the Aston or the Maranello!?

Yeah, sure you can. You can get a TR for both, if you have that kinda money!
Perhaps that's what some of those SVA VIPs do?!!!

I mean if a company has pilots with a 747 licence and newly induct the 777 (eventually as 747 replacement), someone needs to be trained to fly them... the question was: if a 747 pilot gets training for a 777, does he loose his old 747 licence??

referring to the original question: there might be some difference if a pilot flies the 742 or 744 when he would considered to be retrained for the 777...! Here, the technical discrepancy is muc bigger
