Using 777 On Domestic Routes

Fri Jul 02, 1999 1:24 pm

I posted this before,but it DISAPPEARED!

Can someone tell me who else other than UA uses the B777 on domestic routes?
And if other majors do use the 777 on domestic routes what routes do they fly them on please?
Between which city pairs do the UA 777s fly?

Thank You in advance.

United Airlines flies there Boeing 777-200 to Seattle from Denver and I think sometimes from Chicago.

Other airlines that fly the 777-200 /-300 on domestic routes are Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways and Japan Air System.

CO 777s Domestically

Fri Jul 02, 1999 10:49 pm

I flew the CO 777 LAX-IAH in February. At the time I was given the impression that its appearance on that route was temporary, and mainly for the benefit of crew training, etc. That being said, the flight was FULL and they can probably use the capacity. With the DC-10s on the way out, what could they use? More 757 frequencies? Besides, the 777 is cheaper to operate than the DC-10.

I believe that DL was using them ATL-MCO.

CO currently does one EWRIAH roundtrip, and two EWRMCO roundtrips with the 777. The rest of them fly international routes.
Working very hard to Fly Right....

I know one airline that SHOULD use 777s domestically: Qantas! (and overseas as well, obviously).

Someday, Australia will have an airline that flies to more of the major cities in Europe, and some more cities on just about every other continent..

In peak season, Qantas' 767-300s are full on domestic routes, so 777s would be a great addition to their fleet!
