I have a couple of questions regarding AI and their ongoing "projects"...
1) I was wondering if anyone had any new information as to when AI will be receiving the first of their 777-300ERs? I know they have 10 on order with options for 5 more IIRC, unless I'm mistaken. Several of the articles I have read have quoted AI management saying the 77W's will be replacing the 742 fleet, but does anybody know what routes the frames will initially be deployed on?
and 2) 744 cabin refurbishment, status update anyone?

There are no options, it is for 15 firm.
I believe they should start taking delivery this month, there are two sitting outside the factory in full colors. They won't be replacing the 742 fleet as that fleet has been retired for some time now. They should be taking over the 744s that were leased.

Here's a Question!! I noticed that the picture of the ex-MAS 747 is painted in the new colors for AI, yet the windows do not have the "palace windows" Yet a recent picture of there new A330 does have the Palace windows. It is because the aircraft is leased that it is not painted with the palace windows, or will that be something that will be added later?
