|Quoting American 767 (Reply 2):|
I'm not sure American would be interested in it because they don't need an aircraft with such a large capacity, the CASM may be slightly lower but they (AA) would have a difficult time filling all of them out so the load factor wouldn't be that high. The only route I see it would be profitable for them is JFK-LHR.
|Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 3):|
I think they would fill it year round SJO-NRT
|Quoting RootsAir (Thread starter):|
For example, UA hasn't replaced their 747-200's with an aircraft of similar capacity and I'm amazed they haven't chosen the 77W yet(perhaps because they were chap 11?).
|Quoting CHRISBA777ER (Reply 1):
Cant see it. It would slot in nicely at CO, and I suspect if it wasnt GE90-powered it would have found a home at AA and UA already (financial stresses notwithstanding). DL i dont think will, although they have GE90-powered 777NG bird on order.
I think its down to the US's consumer and their love of frequencies.
|Quoting Thorben (Reply 7):|
My money would be on NW. They want to replace their 742s and I'm not convinced they'd go for Airbus.
|Quoting Stitch (Reply 12):|
They still have a few of them lurking about. I believe they mostly serve HNL, but I'm not an NW patron so...
|Quoting Cubsrule (Reply 9):|
In terms of NW, the 744 fleet is quite young, so there's no need to think about replacing those

NW was the first 747-400 operator in February 1989, so some of them aren't that young...almost 18 years.
