I suppose ! I think N703BA will be 7T-VKQ logically.

What is the configuration on these aircraft. BA operated them on their middle east routes and of course it was the lowest config for any B777 anywhere. Where does Khalifa plan to fly them too???? When will they first fly for them and are they in Khalifa colours????

All right guys, here's the news

The first 777 has arrived yesterday to algiers airport . The new registration is 7T-VKP as Alpha confirmed. The cabine configuration is as follow : 22 F / 70 C /148 Y giving a lot of space and pretty well set for the north american route but i'm not sure if it's the right set for a 777. I have to confirm that.
So now Khalifa is leasing both of them to Air algerie (AH) for the pelerinage season to Djeddah and may be Paris and then they will fly them to north america Montreal and JFK (not confirmed yet for JFK) from Algiers. Also JHN will be added 2 flights a week and may be an opening to south east Asia.

More info coming up soon...stay tuned Big grin

Thanks for the info! I'm confused about "JHN will be added two flights a week". Do you mean the three letter IATA code JHN ? That is Nanchang, China. So Montreal is confirmed, any start date ? Thanks! The777Man
