Why Is OS Flying With 777 To KBP?

Mon Aug 14, 2006 9:37 am

Hi every one.
When I check in the GDS I see that OS is flying from VIE to KBP, OS 661 and OS 662 on some days with 777-200, is this route so full that it needs such a big aircraft?

It is for pilot training, as OS got rid of 2 A342 and some of the pilots were transfered to the 777.
They also need a certain amount of landings.
