Has Anyone Seen The New B7677

Wed Feb 02, 2000 5:38 am

Well the new line of 767-400's are out on the market and I heard that they are very nice aircraft. I also heard that they are almost as big as the 777-200. Anyone got any info let me know.

B7677 plane hasn't made. Is it you think about B767 (not 7677)? Please tell me.

I've seen it in and out of Seattle. It's an incredible bird and from what I hear it is very similar to the 777 and makes the 330 cry.

Which 330? Maybe the flying shed (Shorts 330). Definitely not the A330 especially the -200 it's stats put the 767-400 into the shade!

I'm not bagging Boeing by the way as I like the 767 in -200 and -300 very much and I really like the 777 in both -200 and especially in -300 form with those Trents (pity Qantas haven't bought any yet). However I really think that Boeing has got it wrong with the 767-400 but I suppose that time and the market will tell.
