just a one off today
these days a lot of the usual A330 LD's on the European and India runs are being upgraded to either A330 HD or B777 LD or HD due to very strong demand.

e.g today FRA and MUC were op. by A330 HD vs the usual A330 LD

Have seen them several times at ZRH. Whats the reason?
Cargo? Is there a lot of more space in the 777 iso the 330? I don't think because of the Pax capacity.

we do have change of equipment some days, and i have been in some my self... like when i fly with the crew as one of them to Zurich on an A330, the next day when we go back, we realize that the plane that came from Dubai is a 777-200ER, so its kinda normal. plus, Emirates777 is right, some times there are high demands on some routes. like during Eid period or spring break, instead of increasing the number of flights between lets say Dubai and Doha or Dubai and Bahrain, we use 777's or A330's rather than the normal A310's or the A300's .
