A little update for all you fellow CDNs out there… I was just out to see over some work on the 777 final line and realized that it was Air Canada's first 777-300ER. Should be out for delivery for Feb 13 if we can get all the NCR completed on time. But so far no major issues… She's looking fine all in prime !!!
I hope to get some pics when they finally paint her next week.

I think you confused the tail colors Dekx

According to RobK's website, the line number for AC first 777 is 620. The latest line number that has rolled out of the factory I think is 612 (B-16706 of BR which is a 777-300ER), though I may be wrong. So it seems it's still a while til AC first 777 rolls out, but I believe you since you went to see the final Boeing 777 production line in person. We'll see.

Airplane Fan... 617 (Continental 2ER) is coming out tomorrow and Singapores 618 is awaiting engine install. We have Emirates whos getting fwd and aft barrels and is already on the line. AC620 is right behind them.
Both AF and 616 and 617 are completed. AF is in the 67 hanger currently. Both are not painted.
Should see AC end of the week.

Sorry for this slight hijack. Is AC still planning to start flying her in March/April, or would she start flying earlier?

No chance. Would be surprised if it delivers for March 13.

Just Curious,

Does anyone know what tail numbers Air Canada will be using for the 777s?

A340's are 900 series and 767s are 600 series etc..

Definitely looking forward to the replacement of the good looking but runway length hungry A340-300s.

PIA flys YYZ nonstop to Pakistan with their 777s and has yet to ask for a longer runway - great performer!!!!

How exactly are you contradicting me? Where exactly am I contradicting myself? Are you seriously trying to tell me that 620 will roll out, test fly and deliver for 13 Feb?  rotfl 

From roll out to delivery of a 777 you've a time scale of 3 weeks minimum (typically more like a month to 5 weeks) so for ACA to deliver on 13 Feb it would have needed to have rolled out on 23 Jan at the latest and it hasn't even been made yet!

I am sure that Nick (Beech19) will back me up that ACA won't be taking their first 777 on 13 Feb! Try more like 13 March and I might start to believe you.

AC's first 777 is to be delivered March 23rd.

Original date of Feb 13 was pushed back over a month ago.

This comes from 777 Management pilot in YZ.

As for the question as to when AC will start flying the 777.

First routes to be flown will be rapidairs between YYZ-YUL-YOW and Londons to get the crews line indoc'd and transition checked. Once the initial cadre of pilots are checked out she should see HKG/PEK/NRT and other runs commensurate with it's range.

First crews are in Seattle now, with another course starting in Miami a couple of days ago after the sim their got the EFB certified. Most FA's have already done their training. I heard 355 seats with a J, premium economy and economy seats.
