EK 777-200LR To PER?!?

I was looking into flights from Perth to Europe in the march area and was surprised to find that the EK 420 flight to Perth as well as the EK 421 from Perth were operated by the 77L. I then went to the Perth Airport website to check the winter schedule (which goes upto the middle of March), but it only mentioned the 77W in service on the route.

So my questions are:

1. Is this true?
2. From when does this start?
3. How long will this last, is it permanent?
4. Why use an ultra-long range aircraft (or why use two sets as the A345 is running EK 424/5)?

In any case, I hope this is going to last because I would love to travel on that plane one day!

Let me tell you, never trust those schedules on the PER website. I remember they had SQ226 PER-SIN in the middle of december as an A330. Also, i've seen Qantas to NRT operated by a 73H earlier this year. :P

But Emirates tend to operate... unusual aircraft to PER. The A340-500's could be put on alot other routes, yet they end up doing a journey a 332 is capable of flying. Who knows what goes through the heads of EK management!

I have to say though, it's nice to see those giant engines fly in twice a day!

haha. A 73H to NRT, that would have been fun!

I love the array of aircraft EK has had on the PER route, 772, 77W, A345, and I would love for the 77L to come!

They've also operated the 343 down here a couple of years ago.

CXfirst,

Emirates ARE going to operate the B77L's on the EK420/421 service effective 01 Feb.

The A343's currently operating thru here are due to A345 maintenance also.

How could I forget that, that's the one I've traveled most with as well!

Is this going to be long-term, or is this just a short-term replacement due to lack of 77W's or some other reason?

How many 77L's does EK currently have?

If the 77L's go to PER, couldwe possibly see the A345 at SFO?

Until May when the A380 goes daily, this flight continues to AKL.

Not sure how many they have now, maybe 6 or 7.

The 77L's to PER are when additional aircraft arrive so they aren't replacing any other aircraft on other routes for now.
