NYC/BOM Spotters: DL 77L To BOM On 3/10!

Posted (6 years 5 months 3 weeks 6 days 21 hours ago) and read 4730 times:

Ship 7101 has been blocked for DL 16 (ATL-JFK-BOM) on 3/10:

DL 16 ATL 03/10 17:35 JFK 03/10 20:05 77B
DL 16 JFK 03/10 22:05 BOM 03/11 22:35 77B

...and will operate the return flight, DL 17, BOM-JFK-ATL on 3/12:

DL 17 BOM 03/12 0105 JFK 03/12 0800 77B
DL 17 JFK 03/12 0945 ATL 03/12 12:35 77B

Delta doesn't seem to be too timid about getting this new bird up in the air and generating revenue! Hope to see some shots from JFK in the next few days!

Regards,
Chris in Atlanta

Is this ship going to operate only the one return flight to NRT or are more planned? I have a friend that is going to go over from ATL around the 18th.

I haven't seen any plans for later in the month.

It will rotate throughout the system, operating flights to NRT, ICN, TLV, DXB, and of course, BOM (until 3/30/08, when it and N702DN we be dedicated to that flight).

Thanks for the info Chris. As you learn more about it's schedule, maybe you could update this thread. He can alter his schedule a day or two if it will get him on this plane.  Smile

Looks like your friend is in luck. The 77L will operate DL 55 (ATL-NRT) on March 17. Loads look favorable, so he should have no issues changing his flight date.

Does anyone know any routes the 77L will be flying to after it gets back from NRT on March 18th? I can't seem to find anything in the schedule using the 77L after that.

More than likely the folks in scheduling haven't planned that far ahead in terms of this ship's movement. BTW, the second LR will be on property on the 21st.

Thanks! I guess that makes sense. Can't wait for the second one, as well as LHR starting up the end of this month. Too bad it won't be with a 764 or 772.

Will the first couple of 77L be based out of JFK since I see on the DL schedule that continuation flight to ATL is a 757?

Yes, 7101 and 7102 will be JFK-based (at least initially until more 77Ls come online).

Which means 11+ hours of hard stand time at JFK and most of it during daylight hours so any of you guys flying into JFK should have ample times for pics.

Guessing those two are the JFK based planes. Are there going to be any other route that will be a 77L out of JFK or is the rest going to be based out of ATL?

Perhaps DL can better utilize these new birds by sending them in the downtime.

Expect announcements concerning 77L destinations in the near future. There are rumors (unsubstantiated) of JFK-DEL, ATL-DEL, ATL-BOM, ATL-HKG, ATL-JNB (nonstop 77L), and JFK-NRT.

This will - more than likely - be a temporary arrangement until more 77L lift comes online.

I believe that NRT-JFK-BOM-JFK-NRT could be done with 3 777's meaning with one more plane they can get the new route and also improve utilization.

There are a few other routes that are "rumored" as well Chris, altho I'd say the ones you're posting are probably looking like the first...

DL will be receiving the 2nd LR in a couple of weeks. After that, the deliveries are scheduled in Dec08., 3 in Jan09, and one more in FEB09, IIRC. I'm not sure when #8 comes online, but it is in that general time frame as well. We can probably expect some route announcements for these birds during the summer to allow for appropriate lead times to market and implement the service. I figure ATL-BOM will be one of the first new routes announced. This will allow the LRs to cycle through ATL in addition to growing the lucrative India service. Adding JFK-NRT and ATL-HKG would allow complementary aircraft utilization with the existing JFK-BOM route and could be done with six airplanes. Then, we'll see what happens with the other 2. At least, that's my theory. No inside information. Of course, Mr. Bastian has said recently that more LR's will be firmed up if the current and upcoming routes are successful. Sounds like interesting times ahead.

JFK-HKG, ATL-SYD, JFK-SYD, ATL-SIN, ATL-KUL, the rumored list is probably endless  Wink .
That said, personally I'd expect to see the following happen.
-With #3, add JFK-NRT to complement the JFK-BOM routing.
-#4 will temporarily be rotated through regular 772 routes so those can come in for interior updates
-#5-7 will allow for DEL-ATL-HKG routing (BOM-ATL-HKG wouldn't be possible with 3 planes within 72 hours, unless DL were somehow able to rotate 6 77Ls on a hypothetical HKG-ATL-BOM-JFK-NRT routing within 144 hours)
-#4 and #8 will be used to launch ATL-JNB nonstop

And since I'm in the mood  Wink :
#9-11 HKG-JFK-DEL
#12-14 BOM (or DEL, depending on the scheduling)-ATL-CAN (hey, who knows, by 2010 there might be additional US-China slots available)
#15/16, if fuel prices are at a reasonable level, ATL-SYD

I'm waiting patiently for this route!
In the meantime is DL going to keep the B764 on ATL-JNB? I noticed for flights in Nov, the aircraft is unlisted whereas it used to say B767-400.



I love the smell of jet fuel in the morning.

Not sure why the a/c type isn't showing up on Delta.com. But rest assured, having checked TravelNet, the 764 will remain on the route for the foreseeable future.

With the way the fuel price is developing, a lot more routes might be just dreams  Sad . Though the site of a DL 77L above the Petronas Towers and passing by the Sepang curcuit during an F1 race does have a nice ring to it  Wink .

Thanks for checking, was hoping for a B777! Hopefully that'll happen sooner than later.

I'd bet on it - either with an ER or LR, the 777 is on its way to JNB.

Here are the delivery dates for the 777LR fleet as posted by Mr. Lurker in a separate thread


"Here is the list of scheduled delivery dates (key emphasis on 'scheduled'):

7101: 2/28/08
7102: 3/31/08
7103: 12/31/08
7104: 1/31/09
7105: 1/31/09
7106: 1/31/09
7107: 2/28/09
7108: 3/31/09
7109: 6/30/10
7110: 7/31/10
7111: 9/30/10

And that's all that is showing up in the system right now for 777LR's. I do not believe that there has been an announcement regarding 7109 and 7110, and 7111 is still just an option."


25 Flynavy : That date is incorrect. 7102 will be on property 3/21/08.
26 Jfk777 : With Delta's ambitions and only these few 77L ordered, they need way more. It takes 2 planes per route maybe 3, DL needs to order another 10 to 20 777
