I think ATW has simply got it wrong and we're talking about 777-300s here, not 777-300ERs, which are very different.

I think UN should increase its short haul fleet and acquire more 737s so it can improve and increase its feed from its DME hub. Therefore it can effectivley compete with SU and S7 for the domestic market in Russia.

Quoting 328JET (Reply 13): Hmm, so SQ really starts its phase-out of the B777 with exception of the B77W.
That is really sad to see.
But the B773 is a perfect "tourist-bomber" for Transaero on most of their routes.
Well, they still have some 77E's that were delivered early this decade, and those are going to stay until the A350XWB comes. And at my last visit to Changi, I was surprised to see almost nothing but 777's there, just an occasional Airbus...
Yes, good to see the 773's being used at a new operator, would be sad if they had ended up in the desert.

Aeroflot used to operate into South America, but they eventually left the continent. Transaero will start DME-GIG soon and applied with the Peruvian Civil Aeronautics Board to operate a DME-LIM service. UN's recent expansion is quite impressive.

Quoting Vmcavmcg (Reply 14): While the 773 is a good aircraft, it really is somewhat of a pig when at MTOW. You will see SQ retain the 77W for many years to come.
A pig at MTOW, eh? Can't be much worse than a 77E at MTOW? Dunno what the SQ 773s are certified to, but max for the 773 is 660Klbs vs 656Klbs for the 77E.
Regional, medium haul, intra-Asian routes should suit the 773 perfectly.
