Does anyone have any details or links that can point me in the right direction for info? I know it is old news, but I am interested into why they did this?

Thanks in advance,
Tony

Have you done a research on this forum?
We talked about it a lot of time oago so it could be difficult.
Anyway I can tell you that AZ placed an order for 5 B747-400 plus 3 options when they were still involved in the alliance with KLM back in 1999. This move was meant to standardize the long haul fleet on B767/MD-11/B747-400 just like KLM.
When the alliance broke out Alitalia switched the order on the more suited 777

Did AZ cancel their order for the 777? If they did not, when will they be delivered?

Very old news. Alitalia did order 5 747-400's in 2000 and then cancelled the order in favor of the 777. All
of the 747-400 positions were transferred to Virgin
Atlantic Airways which now operates them.

'Airplantire' Alitalia still has 7 Boeing 777-200ers on order. Although, they were first suppost to be delivered in January and Febuary they have now been pushed back to April.

A small correction:
Alitalia has 6 B777-200ER with GE90-94B engines on order. The first should arrive in August, not April. But I might be wrong on this.
Plus they have 6 options for the GE90-115B powered B777-300ER and 6 more rolling options for unspecified versions.
