Delivered 18 June 1998, so nearly 12 years.

We've been hearing about this for SOOOOOO long that even though I see the pictures I still can't really beleive this. Good for BG let's hope the lease goes well.

PS That livery looks fine on the 737 but a little blah on the 777.

Nice that they finally have some "new" aircraft alhtough the livery looks too much like CX.

Looking forward to when Biman gets their 777-300/ERs that they ordered directly from Boeing in 2013.

I grant you that Bangladesh is not a very affluent country , however it has a sizeable overseas population ( even here in Mauritius there are a couple of thousand Bangladeshis - certainly not enough to warrant a service to MRU , but just an indication of how widely scattered the Bangladeshi off shore population is ) .


If they can get their act together ( a big "if" , I grant you ) BG can tap into a sizeable market of expat Bangladeshis , particularly in the UK , who at the moment tend to use other carriers if they can due to what could charitably be called 'quality issues' .

Seems like Portugese ACMI specialists like HiFly or EuroAtlantic are very popular with "sensituve" countries like Nigeria (Arik) or Bengladesh.

EuroAtlantic was once rumoured as a potential operator of TAAG's 777s.

I dont think Biman will have any problem filling this bird. Bangladesh sends thousands of people to the middle east and london. Though their service isnt all that good, Bangladeshi still
prefer to fly with them. The crew speak Bangali and they have a sense of home with Biman.

Expect to see this bird in Dubai, Riyad, Jeddah and London.

As far as im aware they dont. But i think they want to resume it. It used to be operated via BRU before being transferred to go through MAN. Hopefully they will go through MAN again if they start the JFK route.

Maybe it can be? LHR is still down to get the D1C and 313.

26JAN is now the new 'start date' for BG's DAC-MAN-JFK-MAN-DAC to resume but with the 772. BG11 is filed for a 1530 arrival from DAC and 1700 departure at MAN to JFK whilst BG12 comes in to MAN from JFK at 1100 and leaves for DAC at 1230.

BG11 will/maybe/potentially/with any luck operate from MAN on a Tuesday and Saturday.
BG12 will/maybe/potentially with any luck operate from MAN on a Wednesday and Sunday.

100% they do !

The capacity of the B 77W is ideal for high density DAC-LHR + DAC-RUH + DAC-DXB + DAC-JED routes only.

Very true , totally agree. Would have looked much better in the old livery.

What airline is the blue and white 737 in the background? Pretty hot livery IMO, never seen it before.

That was KD Avia a Russian carrier that was based in the enclave of Kaliningrad until last Autumn (Fall) when it went bust..

Kaliningrad is a little bit of Russia totally surrounded by the EU states of Lithuania and Poland and is effectively a huge military camp !
