777, I have a quick linguistics question for you. Why is it that Britons capitalize only the first letter in an acronynm (e.g., Usa, Nato, Nasa) while we Americans capitalize all letters (e.g., NATO, NASA)? The American view seems to me to be preferable as NATO stands for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, not North atlantic treaty organisation. Any thoughts?

Cheers,
WN Boy

"Well spotted" Big grin

There does appear to be some discrepancy in the capitalisation of acronyms in the press as well as on this board! NATO and Nato de seem to appear frequently in different newspapers.

I haven't an explanation I'm afraid!

For what it's worth, the US, EU and WTO always appear as above (all capitalised)!

Cheers!

The possibility of British 777-300s is a mixed blessing. Older, verteran 747-200s/400s will be replaced by longer, sleeker, more modern 777-300s. Cities like Boston that will most likely never see 777-300 service now have the possibility of catching a glimpse of this fine aircraft. Whatever British decides to do is fine with me, the 747s are nice, but the 777-300s are rarer.

Air France's 777-300ERs will be used on routes from Paris to the Far East.

Would they be the new 777-300ER with the New GE 90-115B engines or the 777-300 with the Rolls Royce Trent 992 Turbo Fans? Is British Airways not happy with the GE 90 777's?

BA has requested a higher MTOW than the current 773.This rule's out the current RR power plants,leaving GE as the only suitable engine.BA is,as you may imagine,not happy with the idea of going back to GE as they are more than happy with the new Trent powered 777's.

I have heard different. I heard that they would be used to take 744s off some routes, like to JFK, and put the 744s somewhere else.

Why will BA replace the RR RB211 powered 747-400 models with new GE90 777-300ERs when they are only I believe 5 to 10 yrs old?

I think it is great that we will be seeing the 773 here in the US.

Correct me if I am wrong, but didn't BA get RR engines on their latest 777s becuase a number of RR powered 744s were converted to 772 orders? BA choose to keep the RR engine so they did not have to pay a penalty for cancelling a order.

If that is correct, then I don't see why BA would mind going back to GE.
