777 are used on routes like MEX
, and MEX
does not have the authority to fly to China currently. The photo you may have seen was an ex-Varig a/c being either serviced, painted, or some other special AM
flight operation or ferry.
777 are a nice looking bird. Somewhat peculiar that they have only a few (3?) 777 right now, and have them in both the brushed metal and flowing white liveries - I like both liveries however.
