I was just searching the 777 Worldliner, and the only Livery I saw was PIA. What airlines currently have contracts with Boeing to put into service the new 777?

How many have been built and are flying?

I did a search and couldn't find exactly waht I was looking for.

Thanks in advance

Pakistan Int'l ordered 2 x 777-200LR on 14-Nov-2002 and took delivery of the first one on Feb 24th and the second one on March 22nd of this year.

For a Total of 40 777-200LR's so far.

Only 2... both are owned by PIA.

Use the http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm website and do a "User Defined Search" you can find a whole world of good stuff.

I'm still hopeful qantas and BA will order the 777LR for Aussie to LHR service. hey it will at least do Perth to LHR. Couldn't Qantas find 200 passengers daily for a flight to LHR from Perth? With Emirates, SIA and all the other plucking its Aussie feathers I sometimes think Qantas doesn't do all it can to carry the natives to England from Western Australia. Eastern Australia is very well served by QF to the UK.

Qantas operates flights from Perth to Singapore, from where passangers have an option of 4 flights to London (2 on BA, 2 on QF). As for direct flights from PER to LHR, I just don't think QF could get the premium pax they'd need to make the route work. The East Coast (SYD, MEL, BNE) is well served for a reason: that's where the money is.

Yes, but that is the only route that BA could potentially use the a/c on effectively. I doubt very much that there would be a sustainable profitable load factor for LHR-PER, especially in the premium cabins. Furthermore, to sustain a daily service, you would probably need 4 a/c, one outbound, one inbound, one in MX, and a spare. This would be uneconomic to support only one route.

My money would be that the 10 reserved delivery positions that BA hold will become -300ERs in the fullness of time. This would be a very useful a/c for many of the current routes that the airline operates, and would be a -400 replacement for some of them, and a capacity growth a/c for other routes.

Just for fun I will add AA to possiblities that so they can start long-haul non-stop service from MIA to many many places. Maybe DFW to Africa or Australia someday.
More Fun...JL so they can start non-stop service to MIA to connect to AA's South American Network.

Actualy, why is LHR-SYD/MEL nonstop not an option - the Worldliner flew 21.600 km from Hong Kong to London, from London to Sydney is 17.000 km. The HKG-LHR flight was of course without cargo and with few pax onboard, but still, isn't there enough margin here to reach SYD/MEL (or LHR)?

Also, if it were the case that a very small number of the flights would run out of fuel before reaching LHR or SYD/MEL (like 320s can have problems crossing the US in adverse wind conditions), it would not be a problem; planes could make a fuel stop in Europe or BNE or something... What do you guys say..???? It would definitely be a punch in the face to EK!.....

Whils't the a/c may be capable of LHR-SYD, it would be with so little payload as to be non-commercial. Qantas looked at LHR-PER, and were very concerned about operating PER-LHR with a viable payload, so SYD-LHR non-stop would be a non starter.

That's as maybe, but you still have to make it pay!

Nope, not according to Boeing's order books. I guess that was only a rumour. But IIRC, they converted some 77Ls into 77W.

I cant tell whether or not your poking fun at me, but I'm a good sport so it doesn't matter to me.:D
