How Will EK Distinguish Between 77W And 777 "ulr"?

Mon Jul 30, 2007 2:07 pm

Not sure if this has been discussed before (couldn't find it), but how will Emirates distinguish their 777-300ER and 777-300 Ultra Long Range planes in their schedule? From reading other topics on the latests Emirates planes, I understand that the code for both planes will be 77W, but as the new 77W (the ULRs as they are called on the EK website) will be quite different (at least on the inside with 1-2-1 in F rather than 2-2-2, new flat beds in J, etc), will this not become a logistical nightmare? How will passengers know whether they get the old product or the latest product? Especially with the old 77Ws only just delivered, I can't believe EK will retrofit these anytime soon so it may be some time before you will see some consistancy on a 77W flight? Does anybody know how EK will handle this?

This is a quote from their June press release on the "new" type of plane:
"The new onboard product will make its first appearance on Emirates' Boeing 777-300ER ULR (Ultra Long Range) aircraft being delivered this month, and its 777-200LRs – the first of which will be delivered in August 2007.Over the next 18 months, Emirates will receive 24 new aircraft fitted with this new product. It will also be implementing an aggressive programme to retrofit its existing Boeing 777 long-haul fleet."

Thanks

A 777-300ER is a 773 and a 777-200LR is a 77L. EK does not have any non ER 773 (in fact are there any?) so 773 is enough.

BTW very few people would call a B773 a ULR aircraft. The 77L yes, 773 no.

EK has at least ten 773As - they are Rolls Trent powered, same as their 772A and 772ER fleet. Their 77W fleet is GE90 powered, as will their 77L and 77F fleets.
What do you mean you dont have any bourbon? Do you know how far it is to Houston? What kind of airline is this???

Well what do you know! Learn something new.

Still dont think codes for their schedules are a problems as the codes currently used in timetables don't distingiush beween 762/762ER, 763/763ER or 772/772ER, so why a need to do so with the 773/773ER?

..in fact, EK will be one of the only (if not the only) carrier in the world to have every variation of the B777 in the fleet... bigthumbsup

It'll be interesting to see EK's fleet in another few years.

I'm more of a "general" 777 fan than a B773 fan..in fact, I prefer the B772ER and B772LR versions more than the -300/-300ER versions.. yes

I am a fan of everything (except the A319 and B737) but I am just intrigued how the engines on the 773 and 77W don't fall off the wing because of how MASSIVE they are.

Haha. Yeah maybe I've been the one under a rock Big grin . Whatever EK is calling their 'longer-haul' 77W, what routes will they operate this on and how far are they??
