I just found this new picture taken of an Air Europe 777 parked in FRA:

I thought that they had withdrawn them from service a year or even longer ago but then to see that picture with the plane yet in full livery really amazed me.
Does anybody have some extra information on this matter?

Thanks,
Max

btw: Konstantin, again a great picture of yours!  Big thumbs up

I saw a Air Europe 777 last weekend at FRA when I returned from Florence (maybe the one Konstantin shot), and the other one at Rome in April. Guess though that its days are numbered.

They are still scheduled to fly MXP-MLE twice a week until the end of July. I'm sure they also fly charter flights with them. Interesting to note that the flights from MXP to MLE will be operated by A332 eff 1 Aug but with a PE flight number rather than a VA flighnumber. Pretty sure those flights will be operated by Volare (VA) aircraft. Hopefully going to fly on a PE 777 in about three weeks. We'll see. The777Man

This week Air Europe has scheduled these flights with B772 from Milan MXP:

- Sunday: MXP-Colombo-Male-MXP and MXP-Mauritius-MXP
- Monday: MXP-Puntacana-MXP and MXP-FCO-Male-FCO-MXP*
- Wednesday: MXP-Cancun-MXP

*this flight is scheduled with B772, but maybe this week and the next due to some extra-chater to Japon/Korea, it will be operated with B763.
**probably also some MXP-Sharm El Sheik-MXP will be operated with B772
***for this month they plan to fly many charters to Japon/Korea with B772, but I haven't the scheduled yet.

This week the flights scheduled are very few cause this is a off-season for long-haul charters. From the last week of July they will resume many flights.

Air Europe/Volare will recive all the first 4 A330/200 within the autumn. They rid off B763 first and it's likely to think they will keep both B772 for the next winter season.

Why do they sell their 772s?
Because they decided to replace them with Airbus planes?
Aren't they happy of their 772s?

Many thanks for the info Airblue! I'm planning to fly MXP-CMB on 23 June although that may change. Any idea if they will schedule 777s again after July ? MXP-HAV shows 763 and MLE/CMB shows 332. Thanks. The777Man

MALPENSA T2 18:10 L4 00043 ......7 14/07/2002 20/10/2002 763

MALPENSA T1 19:25 PE 07928 ......7 28/07/2002 20/10/2002 767**
MALPENSA T2 22:25 GJ 02102 .2..... 14/05/2002 06/08/2002 763
MALPENSA T2 22:25 GJ 02102 .2..... 13/08/2002 10/09/2002 763
MALPENSA T2 22:25 GJ 02102 .2..... 17/09/2002 22/10/2002 763

L4= Lauda Air Italia
PE= Air Europe
GJ= Eurofly

**As you can see from 28 July Air Europe will change the B772. I think there is a mistake in the timetable cause the new plane used will be 332 and not 767.

Thanks for the info! Yes, planning to go on 23 Jun which is a Sunday. Any idea of what tour operators from Italy that offers tours/flights to the World Cup ? I was looking at Yahoo.it but had difficulty finding one since there are a lot of travel agencies in Italy. Thanks! The777Man

World cup holiday are usually organized by small tour operator, in fact I haven't any idea which one do it (maybe Chiariva), cause to find one you have to go inside a travel agency and ask.
