I am guessing 767-300ERs.

Four or five years, at least, with the current backlog and production rate.

Seems like an odd choice given the possible alternatives. Surely they would have been better off to snap up some old ones.

How come in aircraft such as the 767 new ones don't necessarily mean that they are better like in cars?? How come the old ones (other than price) are a so called better catch?? Sorry for all the questions but also what ever happened to those winglets on the AA example, how's it doing?

New = no AD's, little maintenance, 777 interior but the right 767 capacity, 777 overhead bins, available soon, cheaper than the 787 and available MUCH sooner, still a very efficient machine... Winglets?

That’s all I can think of  Smile

yes American airlines had purchased winglets for one of their 767-300ER's, this website has picks if you look it up, just wondering if the performance of the winglets has come up to expectations

Quote "American said the 767-300ER winglets will save at least 290,000 gallons of fuel per plane per year."

I dont know what the expectations were, but 290,000 gallons at $5.80/Gallon for Jet-A assuming AA has an equal hedge on their fuel, that is 1,680,000 of fuel savings per aircraft per year.

I dont know what the winglets cost to install, but even if it takes 2 years to pay off and the aircraft stays in service for another 5 years it seems like a wise investment.

They already have it in their fleet (orders in 1995, 2003 and 2006) and if these are meant to cover the delivery delay of their two 787-8s, they would need four to comfortably match the capacity.

The 763ER is amazingly efficient and competitive. Just watch how Delta uses their 763ER-winglet fleet in the coming years.

It is a great jet.

Correct, that makes 8 new B-767-300ERs Uzbekistan has on order from Boeing, plus the 2 B-787-8s.

http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2008/q4/081107a_nr.html

Here it is on the Boeing orders and deliveries list. Look like the old B-767 has picked up a total of 24 new orders, so far this year, including these 4, 9 for NH, 2 for Azerbaijan, and 9 UFOs. Boeing got some 30 B-767 orders in 2007, including the 27 UPS B-767-300ERFs.

Unfortunately, the B-747-8 only picked up 3 orders so far for 2008. There are 3 B-747-8BBJs on order.

True enough. But 18 of these (for ANA and JAL) are by way of compensation for the ever-later 787. Without these delays sales of the 767 would be anaemic.

Don't get me wrong. Great plane in its day and I've enjoyed a couple of dozen flights on it but it's in its twilight now.
