I was thinking of going out to JFK to catch another look at the AF 777-300ER. However, the flight trackers are saying it's a 772 today. Are they just not updated yet to have the 773, or is it a 772 flying the route today?
AF Flight # 6 and 7. 6 is due into JFK in about two hours. Any help is appreciated.

I just asked that question earlier this week. Apparently, new aircraft are used on shorter, more familiar routes at first to allow the crew to familiarize themselves with the aircraft. Also, during the "introductory period" the plane will likely have some glitches to be worked out and the airline would prefer that these are worked out during shorter routes.

I have a friend who had the pleasure of flying in J on the first return back to CDG on 10MAY04 ... with the exception of the cabin crew, he had a good flight and was pleased with the new J class seat. He said the whole plane looks very nice inside and is just immense.
