Why haven't any of the US airliners (or any except for the few Asian operators) taken a liking to the 773? It is such a beautfiul bird and it seats more [than the 772]...are they just waiting for the 773ER or what is the deal ...thanks

Why does UA than fly its 744 on US-routes from IAD, ORD; SFO, DEN, LAX,....?
Ok those flights are positioning flights..... .
Perhaps they could fly those routes with a 773 and the 744 would only fly transpac- or transatlant- routes  Big grin.

Yeah, AA61hvy you must be right!! *g
It's simply a bit to big for the US-routes/ airlines.
Perhaps they change their mind with the avaibility of the 773er in the next years.

Here in europe the 773 isn't that popular, too.
AF has start the "european run" on the 773er with more airlines to follow.

Good question, wonder as well why US and European Airlines are not operating the 773 until now. Especially within the US there should be a demand of this aircraft where airlines are already operating 747...

The point is, I am sure that they are some routes ..for example...living in Miami is like living in a foreign country and I am sure that some of the routes to South America could use a little larger capacity that AA (Hub in MIA) simply cannot provide because they don't have a big enough plane...ok they can increase the frequency but sometimes it just makes more sense to have a larger (but still VERY similar) plane in their fleet....

Sorry, MIA777,
as much as I like the 772 I think that the 773 is a ugly bird, aesthically unbalanced, overstretched.
Some airlines, namely Air France, indeed wait for the 773ER, because the 773 in its current form doesn´t have enough range.

I hope it´ll stay a rare bird - and airlines favour the bigger 747 also in future.

In Europe also AZ placed 6 options for the B777/300ER.

ok Swissgabe alsomade another good point....I doubt (though I could be very wrong) that the UA 744s on domestic routes fill up completely...maybe they could be placed on very dense intl. routes and use the 773 to replace the 744 on the domestic routes...oh well, I think the 773 is great and would love to see it here [teh US] in the future...

I think in a few years we may actually see a US-based airline order the 777-300ER. The most likely choice: AA. AA could use the 773ER on its routes to Asia from DFW and ORD, especially to NRT.

However, I do think that KE might order the 773ER for its ICN-LAX/SFO routes. They could use the extra LD3 container space to make a lot of money carrying cargo on these routes.

You don't see many 747s operated within the continental U.S., and when you do, it's usually to extend utilization hours on an aircraft that is ostensibly used for international routes.

Since the 777-300 is of similar capacity, I don't think that the aircraft really meets the need of U.S. domestic operations.

The 773 will make a great 744 replacement and a capacity step above the 772 later this decade.

It seems logical that AA/UA/DL/CO will add the 773 in due course.




Panam, TWA, Ansett, Eastern.......AC next? Might be good for Canada.
