Because the A343 & B744 have now only J/Y Class, while the B772 are still fitted with a First and a bigger Business class cabin (30 or 36J on A343, 40J on B744, 56J on a B772ER).
And there is a big demand for Premium Class on these routes.

AF always downgrades DEL from a 744 to a smaller plane for the (lighter) summer season, last few years it was a 343, it would be nice to see the AF772 in DEL too. This means that DEL will now see loads of 772 operators - Alitalia, Air France, Air India, JAL, Korean, Asiana, KLM. The more the merrier.
Isn't BOM already a AF 777? I saw one at the terminal the other day.
