AF To Send 777-300ERs To GRU?

Mon Mar 21, 2005 4:53 am

Just read that AF may be sending some 773s down to GRU because of high loads on their current 772 service... anyone heard anything about it?

I hope they do, it would be the first 773 service to GRU!! And probably the first time I see one too, can't wait if it's true!

Considering that GRU is rapidly becoming one of the world's most highest yielding long haul destinations for EU and USA airlines, I am not surprised if AF are planning on making the switch from B 772ER to B 773ER.

For even airlines such as Swiss-LX who fly 5-6 weekly A 343s nonstop to GRU from ZRH, the route has performed vv well for them and they want to make it daily but no spare A 343s available for them to do so.

I read in another thread that Lufthansa wants to add two A340-300s to SWISS's fleet. Will these be new A340s or secondhand and where will they come from, ex Lufthansa birds or the two cancelled A340s SWISS had?
