Jet Airways Confirms Order For 10 B773ER

Mon Sep 12, 2005 10:14 pm

Sept. 12 (Bloomberg) -- Jet Airways (India) Ltd., the
nation's biggest domestic carrier, has signed an agreement to buy
ten of Boeing Co.'s 777-300ER aircraft.
Jet Airways said the planes would be delivered from March
2007, according to a statement by the company to the Mumbai stock
exchange. The order, which was announced in June, also has an
option to buy an additional 10 planes, the statement said.


What about the 772LR?

funny!! they were buying 6 B772LR and 4 B773ERs. Maybe technical error on the part of the reporter?
Here is the press release off their website dated June, 2005.

Indeed very good news for Boeing, and the B777 family. At a time of great turbulence with the Boeings work force they are able to maintain these orders coming in.

That was why I asked Aseem I cannot access the filing to clarify though. If anyone can, clarification would be appreciated. With delivery starting in 2007 I can assume this was not one of the carriers that took ACs 2006 delivery slots.

I am wondering whether AI will receive their 777ERs earlier than 9W, despite the order being placed later??

From the National Stock Exchange website :-
Jet Airways (India) Ltd. had informed the Exchange regarding the proposed purchase of ten Boeing 777-200LR / 200ER / 300ER series aircraft (and 10 options) from The Boeing Company, USA. The Company has now informed that the company has executed a Purchase Agreement with The Boeing Company, USA, for ten Boeing 777-300ER series aircraft (and 10 options) with the deliveries commencing from March 2007 onwards.
Report stands corrected.

They already plan to start A340 services to BHX from DEL-ATQ-BHX, so you will get your wish granted by the end of this year.

Also once the 340s go back to SAA you will probably see a 9W 332 to BHX and if lucky a 777 LR on a technical stop wink

No sorry man, the AF titles will only apear on the 777-200LRF protype. And I agree, can't wait to see SQ, QF, BA, and EK titles. Just think, a plane that started with only 2 titles will soon be at 9.

I am guessing that the LR would be for North American non-stop routes. Is it harder to get those slots? Maybe they're not thinking of flying those....

How hard will it be for Jet to get slots or even landing permission in the US even on one-stops from India through Europe or East Asia to the East and West Coasts of the US?

Any thoughts?
It is not enough to be rude; one must also be incorrect.

The nice thing about a machinist's job after a strike - overtime! Assuming the strike is resolved within the next few weeks (I'm hopeful), Boeing will then work overtime to try and get back on schedule. The delivery delays will be minimised to a maximum exent (get it?  Wink).

Quoting Jacobin777 (Reply 10):
AF had signed to purchased the -200LRF, their tail isn't painted

That's because AF didn't order the -200LR, they ordered the -200F. Despite being based on the same airframe, rest assured they are different aircraft.

. . . BTW - there is no -200LRF. There is only the -200F.

Sorry, ACgSpotman, but those slots were reassigned almost immediately after AC told Boeing the order would not go through.

Actually Boeing is basing the 777 Freighter on the 200LR. Now what they will term it, we shall have to wait and see, but for all intensive purposes it is a 777-200LRF much the same way as a 747-400ERF is a cargo version of the passenger 747-400ER.

Working with cargo operators worldwide, Boeing selected the 777-200LR Worldliner as the platform for the 777 Freighter because it offers the range and payload capability operators want.

Right, because there is already a 747-400F, hence the need to differentiate the -ERF.

The 767 Freighter is a 767-300F, not a 767-300ERF. The 777-200 Freighter will be the 777-200F.

Yes, it is the 767-300F, not 767-300F/ER or ERF. Check out the listing of the table of 767 models on the bottom of Boeing's 767 homepage.

Quoting TradewindL1011 (Reply 32):

Until they come out with a longer-ranged model, it will be the -200F.

Quoting TradewindL1011 (Reply 32):
much the same way as a 747-400ERF is a cargo version of the passenger 747-400ER.

Because, as already pointed out, there already is a -400F. With the introduction of the -400ER, Boeing needed something to differentiate the two different Freighter versions.

Quoting Gigneil (Reply 33):

They already have. Trust me, there's no mystery involved. With the cancellation of the AC LOI, Boeing simply moved a couple existing customers forward.

Quoting TradewindL1011 (Reply 34):

That's because it is posted on A.net, which while good to access excellent aviation photography, is not the end-all source for other information. Ask Boeing if you don't believe me. Officially, there are two different new-build 767 Freighters, and neither have "ER" in their designation.

In my opinion the 777LR has India-SFO written all over it.

Agreed, However to go a bit further and look at ther route expansion possibilities.

777-200 LR routes possibility *6 aircraft

BOM-SFO-----2 aircrafts [daily service]
India-IAH-----2 aircrafts [daily service]
DEL--ORD---- 2 aircrafts [daily service]
BOM-JFK------??????????? instead of DEL-ORD

I personally dont see them going non-stop to the Chicago area altough they have hinted upon it as there are flights from AA,and future flights probably from UA, and most certainly from AI.

possible 777-300 ER routes *4 aircrafts

BOM-LHR----1 aircraft [daily terminator service]
DEL- LHR----1 aircraft [daily terminator service]
INDIA-LHR-IAD---2 aircraft [daily service]

LHR has the capacity for the 77W and IAD is an excellent untapped market with lot of Indians, and also good fifth freedom traffic on LHR-IAD sector.

When are the 10 A332 going to be signed, and when is delivery scheduled.

Possible routes * 16 aircrafts [10 order + 4 ILFC lease + 2 from Ethiad]

BOM/MAA-SIN-MEL----2 aircrafts [daily service]
MAA-LHR--------------1 aircraft [daily terminator service]
BLR-FRA-BOS----------2 aircrafts [daily service]
BOM/DEL-BHX-YYZ-----2 aircrafts [daily service]
BOM-CDG-YVR---------1 aircraft [3-4 weekly service]
BOM-HKG-KIX ---------2 aircraft [daily service]
AMD-LHR-EWR----------2 aircraft[daily service]
BOM-MAN-LAX----------2 aircraft [daily service]
MAA-KUL-PVG-----------1 aircraft [weekly service] do they have fifth freedom rights from KUL
BOM-BKK-CGK-----------1 aircraft [daily service]

Altough it would be great to serve the Aussies non-stop, but given the demand patterns of the market its best to serve them from SIN, which could provide good fifth freedom traffic.,
Leaving SYD out as it is served non-stop by QF [yeah yeah i know about the technical stop in Darwin once the 333 are used] also AI has hinted on several occasions that it would like to serve them so its best to serve MEL and i hear the S.Indian community has a strong presence in MEL and SIN, as said killing two birds with one plane  wink 

CDG-YVR purely because of Immense yields between the two cities.

IMO, Japan does not require a non-stop flight unless it carries on to USA, that is why it would be best to serve them via HKG where yields are good both ways.

AMD-LHR-EWR flight will be a great one and the Gujju community will be really happy about it.

BOM-MAN-LAX---no current service, and i hear AIs flights to LAX do not have much LAX O&D traffic, so the 332 seems the perfect aircraft for the route.

Also, they must begin to serve the Middle Eastern market with their 738s/739 aircraft and also connect S.indian cities to S.E. Asian cities like SIN/KUL/BKK with similar aircrafts..

These destinations are based on my own views, and press releases and rumours from my many friends working at 9W.

Why isn't any Indian carrier thinking of BOM/DEL-Europe-SFO sector? I feel SFO should be a bigger priority than IAH. 777LRs will take some time to be delivered even if they order it today, but there is a very big Indian community in the bay area. They should be looking at SFO on a priority basis.

I believe I see an "ER" prefix in that type designation.

Hamlet pointed out, I'll just reiterate. The a.net classification for the plane is incorrect.

AI will launch that very sector soon, so they are in fact more than thinking  Wink

Karan, good ideas! I see lots of room for improvement though. At least you provided us with a basis. Some questions from me:

Quoting Karan69 (Reply 44):
BOM/MAA-SIN-MEL----2 aircrafts [daily service]

Why MEL? Anyways, the key would be 6th Freedom, and I guess 9W is more effective in that question than AI.

Quoting Karan69 (Reply 44):
BLR-FRA-BOS----------2 aircrafts [daily service]

Why BOS??? How about some other European/African destinations (some more extreme money maers). Better interline with UA or so to feed the flights commencing in Europe

Quoting Karan69 (Reply 44):
BOM/DEL-BHX-YYZ-----2 aircrafts [daily service]

Did you leave ATQ out of purpose?

I disagree. There is enuff demand India-Japan.. but afaik 5th freedom to the Westcoast exists (at least for AI, no idea how old the bilat is and whether the rights can be used from 9W) - so continuing the flight to the West Coast is a good idea

Quoting Karan69 (Reply 44):

I doubt that 9W and S2 will be allowed to do so. There is some trouble with India-ME Bilats, and I wonder whether the latter will be ready to surrender more of the market they are just loosing. EK will have a tough time

Exactly I thought Legal delays were prevalent only out here.

Here you go for all of you wondering what is happening with Jet's application to US authorities..... It is still PENDING

There is a huge Indian community in the Bay Area, especially in the South Bay/East Bay/Silicon Valley areas such as San Jose, Milpitas, Santa Clara, Sunnyvale, Fremont, etc.

With many parts (employment, etc.) of Silicon Valley being either exported, or with India now having a large technology presence of their own, there is a growing link between Northern California (i.e. Bay Area) and India, and I think its smart for 9W to get this market before anyone else does!

On a side note, there is a large Pakistani population here in the Bay Area too..but PK is planning on flying to LAX first.. Sad
