Hi

A small thread with a specific question:

I just saw an interior picture of an AC 777 on this website (herringbone seating arrangement), and the caption underneath read that it was their last 777 on the line (my wording).

So I'm just trying to ascertain what that means...

Has AC mothballed some/most 777s during this slump?
Have they sold them?
Have they sold them and leased them back (like with their last 3 747s)
Or was the poster speaking of a certain 777 variant?
Or did he mean the last 777 to get the herringbone seating...?

Me confused.

Thanks for any info.

SST

The last Air Canada 777 ordered; hence it's the last one to enter to the Air Canada fleet.

All 18 B777 have now been delivered. They recently sold and leased back 3 B77W in a deal with GE Capital. Some of the other B777 aircraft have also been sold and leased back earlier,I think they include 2 B77L and possibly a couple of other B77W aircraft. Two B77W aircraft were taken up as leases when delivered from the GE aircraft leasing unit. Hard to say if they would park any of the B777 fleet during these challenging times,except to say the CEO just recently stated that there may be a need to park some aircraft and lay-off employees temporarily until the economy improves. I suspect you may see some of the B763 aircraft parked for a short period where a route has multiple frequencies and can be reduced with an upgauge to a B777 without losing a significant amount of seating capacity.
