Heard from a spotter telling me that Continental B777s has a lot of problems especially on the HKG - NWR route. He did not mention which or what type of problems the triple 7s encounters. Anyone know anything about this?
There was a problem with the RR Trent 800 series used on the 777 a while ago, the problem had something to do with the coating used on the Trent's titanium fan blades. The problem has now been corrected by using a different kind of coating.
It seems people get a lot of information that is incorrect. CO loves the 777, and I personally have flown the CO 777 about 50 times including the EWR>HKG flight and there has never been any problems on any of mine. This isnt to say that there has never been a problem, but generally there isnt
The crew also loves it in comparison to other heavies. It head REAL crew rests instead of the sheet that is draped over 2 rows in the back of economy. The galleys are huge. And best of all, there is a built in cappucino machine in the cockpit
