Quoting KELPkid (Reply 3): Which ones, the older -200ER's that are now doing 1 hour hops like SIN-PEN?
I'd imagine that the -300ERs will be around for quite some time...
Speaking of those 777-200ER's doing 1 hour hops, flew SIN-PEN and vv recently and lucked out both times, 9V-SVA from SIN-PEN and 9V-SVD from PEN-SIN - both with the long-haul -ER product in J class. Seemed in pretty good condition, I was expecting -SRA or something.
Singapore Airlines - 76 (77)
ILFC - 73 (79)
Emirates Airline -63 (110)
United Airlines - 55
American Airlines - 47
British Airways -45
All Nippon Airways -41 (47)
Japan Airlines - 40 (46)
Air France - 35 (52)
Saudi Arabian Airlines - 23
I have flown my first SQ773-ER from SFO-ICN-SIN and believe it was a vast improvement over my flight on SIN-HKG-SFO on 744.... FIrst of all the aircraft was spanking new with larger TVs in economy and bigger seats with a better recline....service though was the same.....AMAZING
Cricket perhaps you could try BOM-SIN ... SQ have upgraded the evening flight to 773ER...same from DEL as well....

I flew SVA AKL-SIN a couple of weeks back, indeed was in good condition. They rotate on some short haul flights in between the long hauls. The day after we flew it, it was on the same AKL run and required an engine change at AKL incidently.

Question for folks....
I know many of the A333's are replacing SQ's 777-200ER on short to medium-haul routes. Are any 777-200ER's staying around on longhaul routes. Are any A333 taking over and replacing them on longhaul routes. With the arrival of the A333, more 777-300ER and the A380, will SQ keep any of its 777-200ER's?

One question....I understand SQ is replacing their earliest 772 with A333s but then why change to a new aircraft type and not go for newer 772s ? Wouldn't fleet commonality be affected ?
Are the A333 more fuel-efficient than newer T7s ? I didn't quite get SQs logic for the replacement . Anyone could please explain
: SQ still needs the 77E on longer routes with less premium demand, like AMS (the A333 doesn't have the legs for that). The younger 77E's in SQ's fleet
: Yes, fleet commonality would be affected but remember SQ already has the A345 in their fleet, which makes transition somewhat easier. The A333 deal i
: Btw their first A333 will arrive in January.
: I flew 9V-SRC PER-SIN in July, what a shame it'll be leaving the fleet! Was in perfect condition, better than alot of the newer 772's I've flown on fr
: Depending on the route / mission profile. Not that I want to start this again since there are probably a thousand threads on this very topic...just w
: Nice to see that quite a lot of 777's are flying for several airlines around the globe. I still hope that, one day, SV gets some 77W's.
: Air France is already currently operating 51 B777 : 25 B772ER + 26 B77W in 2009, AF will add to its B777 fleet 5 B777F and 5 B77W. More B777 are to b
: Hi! No problem! But you can delete these from your list: F-GUOA AFR MSN 32967 777-F28 F-GUOB AFR MSN 32965 777-F28 F-GUOC AFR MSN32966 777-F28 They a

: CX now have 26, so they should be above Saudi.
: Thank u all for your inputs. As a B777 fan its always great to be corected.
: "Correct" Top 5 of B777 operators in DEC 2008 : SQ = 76 EK = 64 UA = 52 AF = 51 AA = 47
: Hi R, sorry I didn't know that before! GreetZ, Jan
: Yes, however SQ already operate the A345 series + the A333 is part of the A380 delay compensation deal... EK413
: I think your right. So my guess would be SQ or EK receiving the 777th!
: The 777th B777 will be Air France B777-328ER F-GZND. To be delivered to AF in January 2009. Will be AF's 27th B77W and 52nd B777. F-GZNE is scheduled
: Why....what makes so vastly different, or are you somehow saying other aircraft are irrelevant? Well yes, but so are an awful lot of other aircraft,
: Just testing ! Thanks for the info. How many 777's does EK have on order?
: That delivery date of Jan 2009 sounds quite ambitious if Boeing are still assembling line# 759 today. Was Jan 2009 perhaps the delivery date before t
: It is because it's plain wrong. Dunno where FlySSC is sourcing his info from but it's unreliable. I've no actual date for GZND yet but rest assured i
