777-200LR Freighter

Tue Jul 20, 2004 12:43 am


19 July 2004 / Dow Jones

Alan Mulally, president and chief executive of Boeing Commercial
Airplanes, said airlines are "salivating for a 777 freight version."

"I predict over time a freight version of the 777 will end up
replacing all big freighters today, because of the economics," he

Mulally was responding to questions about the 747, which he said has
high demand as a freighter, especially from Asian customers..


Something I read on another board, I thought would be of interest. I assume the freighter would be based of the high MTOW variants of the 777, namely the 772LR and 773ER. I could see KLM/AF cargo being interested, as well as a few Asian carriers.

Great news!

While the MD-11F still has many good years left, the 772F will be a perfect candidate to replace some DC-10Fs.

The 772LR has been the family member targetted toward freight work... originally as a 90T freighter, now probably more.
