I´d say China Southern as well, they are trying to get rid of their 772s for quite some time. I remember sale offers 2 or even 3 years ago.
SV is a possible source also, but I thought the incoming 77Ws are replacing the 741s and 743s first, with 77Es replacement to follow later. The engine type in the ad is 90B, which points to China Southern however, as SV have 92Bs.
I wonder who is trying to sell the 3 RR-powered ERS. SQ, EK, or both? EK have 892s, SQ 884s.
Quoting Fyano773 (Thread starter): Certainly this plane will be easily placed as several operators are looking for that type with GE engines.
This plane is probably too advanced in age for AUA as the 767s to be replaced are just a few years older. They have one 772 from 1997, but would they aquire another one for just half a dozen years before its due for the desert? I´d expect they look for some planes built in the 2000s.

Interesting. Emirates currently have six 777-200ERs in the fleet. All of them were delivered 1997-1998 which is pretty old by Emirate's standards. I think these are going to be replaced by some of the 777-300ERs they have on order - but not sure of the intended time-frame.
Singapore Airlines is (slowly) transferring some 777-200ERs to Scoot, but I believe that most of them will eventually be replaced by the A330-300s - they have 15 (or so) on order.

Are these the same engines of the 2 new-builds that AM operates and the 2 ex-RG birds that AM operates? I know AM's triple sevens have GE engines, but I don't know if they are the exact same rating.

Quoting zkojq (Reply 2): It is China Southern, I believe. The aircraft in question will be B-2056, MSN 27525 which was delivered in March 1997. China Southern also has five 777-200 non-ER sister-ships for sale.
It was reported elsewhere that an AM's evaluation team returned from China few days ago in order to check an older 777 available. It might be either:
27524 55 777-21BER 28/02/1997 B-2055
27525 66 777-21BER 18/04/1997 B-2056
The airline is interested in 2 T7s; apparently they come as replacements for current 762s and as interim solutions for the 787 delays.
