That's right. Continental just inaugurated a new flight from Newark to Tokyo nonstop. That one is on a B777-200IGW which was delivered to Contienental two months ago. They say that they will also start service to Tokyo from Houston as of July 1999, I strongly believe that they will also operate the 777 on that route. You can be sure that their four remaining 747's will leave the fleet very soon, I'm very positive about that.
I really think that the 777 will have a greater future than the 747. It only has 2 engines instead of four, this doesn't mean that it doesn't have a bright future. IT DOES HAVE A BRIGHT FUTURE. The 747 is an nice airplane but I like the 777 much better, the only advantage that the 747 has over the 777 is that ETOPS rules do not apply. I don't have the impression that Continental will order 747-400's, neither will Delta.
