Not that it's a huge thing, but some users were wondering if and when Delta would bump the MTOW on the B777s up from 648,000 lbs to 656,000 lbs. Effective 9/13/06, all eight aircraft are certified for the higher weight in preparation for the nonstop India services beginning in November.


It's a new day. Every moment matters. Now, more than ever.

What were the criteria for recertifying the aircraft? Were there modifications made?

All that happened is they paid Boeing for the higher certification.

it is necessary for JFKBOM but will increase capabilities on all 777 routes which will increasingly be to/from Asia.

I love how Delta JFK to Asia route is to Mumbai, not accross the Pacific. Would love to see JFK to NRT, again.

Will this mean no weight restrictions on JFK-BOM?


The proper term is "on final" not "on finals" bud...

Not "no" weight restrictions, as the max payload range of a 777 is far less than the 6800ish nms of this route.

But it will likely fly fairly full of pax and with their bags. Not a lot of cargo but possibly some going east...

No, just less restrictions. Going JFK-BOM, it's probably not that much of an issue thanks to the prevailing tail winds, whereas for BOM-JFK, the increase is more than welcome.

I am guessing the increased MTOW is for the fuel weight. Am I right?

no, MTOW mean the aircraft's MAXIMUM TAKE-OFF WEIGHT meaning it's weight with pax, baggage, fuel etc,

I think he was trying to say "the increase in MTOW is due to having to carry more fuel for this long flight."

I would hazard the guess that that is the case.

Correct so for example if the plane would need to carry 240Lbs of fuel and only 80,000 of payload (including cargo, pax etc.)

And now it can do with 90,000 of payload

All the figures are fake, only to give you an example
