Europe is blessed with great geographical location: right in the middle of everything and a destination in its own right. However countries of Asia and the Pacific can use or do need the capabilities of this aircraft.
Interesting to see that the single longest stay is in London.

It is visiting Australia, India, Singapore and Taiwan, etc, but not Japan? That seems odd. Either they have written off the country, or they know that JAL/ANA will order eventually! Otherwise, strange to me if you don't take care of your best customers.

Hmmm, TSA, I'm surprised to see a B772LR lands at TSA since Taipei SungShan is now only a domestic airport handling I guess the biggest B767 which they used to have when TSA was still an international airport and A321 by Transasia. is the runway long enough for B772LR to take off? Taipei CKS /TPE to to Taipei SungShan /TSA, must be a FUN leg!

Quoting Theredbaron (Reply 4): From Mexico down to Argentina, I dont see any dates-places....mmmm tipical...
Don't worry Theredbaron! The Dreamliner will be here at MEX next week before touring Middle East/Asia. But I'm not sure if it's going south. Perhaps only Chile for LA and Colombia (now that they have a rich owner) other than that I don't see B interested in Brazil (considering JJ going A and RG having hard times) or Argentina with no fleet renewal plans at the moment.

I would have thought the reason for that was obvious. There are at least two potential 777 buyers I could point to, possibly even 3, in Britain. All three would want to keep themself appraised of Boeing's offering, even if not on a ready-to-buy basis.
The engineering side of it is also of interest due to commonality with the 773ER.
I'm told BD are going to be having a look at it too as they are contemplating new fleet orders and are by no means wedded to Airbus if there is a better deal on offer.

Quoting LHR27C (Reply 22): It isn't even scheduled to go to LHR, EGKK is Gatwick in ICAO speak. Too bad it isn't LHR though, I am doing work experience there the week the 772LR is scheduled to visit LGW.
OOPS I thought EGKK was heathrow. I am still suprised it is not coming to heathrow considering it is the UK's busiest airport....and bigger than gatwick.
