Does anybody know if there are any secondhand Boeing 777's (any model) on the market/for sale right now? Which airline to they currently belong to? Any information would be appreciated.

Hi,

there were 2x B777-236 available until end of October.
Those ex-BA 777 supposed to fly for Khlaifa/Air Algerie months before.
Now they'll both go to RG for their GIG-JFK routing or something similar.

Don't know exactly. But SU wants to get rid of their 777, new customer perhaps VN (but this is a big rumour)  Wink/being sarcastic

GreetZ,

The two ex-BA/Khalifa ones are slated to go to Varig, according to the latest Flight International. As for the other 4 for sale 777s, they are ex-UA ones, returned to the lessor and stored.

Egyptair is going to dump their 777s upon delivery of the ordered A330s. I don´t have a date for this exchange, but it won´t be too long from now. Together with the 777s the two 743 Combis will be sold, so the two largest types in the fleet will leave.
And yes, Aeroflot announced that it will return its two 777s to the lessor.

does anybody know why all these 777s are getting returned? For such a "young" plane, I find it amusing. Are these the first 777s to roll out that do not have the same range as the ER version, or is there a bigger problem that the airlines have not acknowledged?

cheers

Dont forget, the Air Austral 772ERs were formerly owned by Air Europe.



Egyptair is going to dump their 777s upon delivery of the ordered A330s.

That hasnt been confirmed yet, MS only stated that they were considering it as part of their fleet rationalization plans. Such a move may be retracted as MS has much more recently been considering quite a few new longhauls.




As for SU, they plan to center their western fleet around the 763ER and A32x... hence, the small number of 777s in their fleet are on the way out.

Aside from EgyptAir (which may sell off the 777s to simplify its fleet - they have small numbers of many different types) and Aeroflot (which also has only two 777s which are too big for most routes and expensive to lease), BA has 5 777A variants which they are willing to sell (2 are out of service), UA is considering disposing some of their 777s (various types available - UA is currently looking at their 744 and 777 fleets in an attempt to cut costs - originally, it seemed that many of the 744s would go, but now some 744s have returned to service and 777s have been parked - UA will keep the aircraft with favorable lease terms and dispose of those that are too expensive.)

Although the 777 has been in service for about 7 years, the second hand market is still rather small for the type.

Dutch Jet:

Look Egyptair will operate the A32X, A330, A340 and hopefully the B777 after they rationalise their fleet. They currently operate they A300, A32X, A340, B777, and B747. The B737s operate with Egyptair's subsidary Air Sinai. That's just 5 aircraft types (excluding its subsidary'fleet) which is not 'one of everything' like you suggest. Most airlines operate similar if not more aircraft types.
