With the delivery of the 787 (24 frames) not before 2016 , GF is looking to grow their A330 fleet

They already have 6 A330-200s , and will receive next year 3 ex MEA (leased from ILFC) 200s.

They have 20 A330-300s on order , and will announce next month where come from the 4 more (200 or 300 ?) they plan to lease.These birds will replace A340-300s.

With 60 destinations planned for 2013 , compared to 43 today they plan to grow their fleet to 3-4 wide bodies a year.

Used A330s have been very hard to come by but things are likely to start changing soon. I wonder if Gulf will try to stick with RR.

Speaking of which, any word yet on an engine choice for their new builds?

Word is they'll be GE...  Wink
Nah, just pulling your leg. I'd put money GF on sticking with Rollers. (yawn)


Am I right in thinking they haven't yet announced an engine selection for their 787s?
