Can anybody give me an update on the XM interior refit project for the transpacific AC 767s? The most current information I have is from wikipedia and that says that 11/31 of the 763s have been fitted. It also says that the other 20 will be done by early 2008, which if only 11 are done I find hard to believe.

Who can give us an update on the actual progress of this project?

Thanks,

Charlie

What about the Blended Winglet solution that was part of the 777 order wayyy back?

Is that still going forward? IF So, when will we see the first wingletted AC 767?

I believe this was no longer going to be done. I understand (but could totally be off-base), that the payback was simply not enough to warrant it. No doubt the almost-1-year-delay in ordering the 777's was a contributing factor.

That may be the truth, but wouldn't adding winglets to them make them more attractive to potential buyers once they start introducing the 787?

Hrrm.

Thanks James  Smile
