As an update to the thread posted by SU184 regarding Egyptair leasing 8 B777'S and 3 A330/200 .
Egyptair has decided on which type of the newly announced B777 lease order to go .
The Airline has decided to lease 8 brand new B777/300ER . This order will be replacing the 5 B777/200ER MS is currently operating , and will NOT be an addition to them . It is still an increase in both the B777 number of A/C by 3 Aircraft and in capacity as well (15-18% per A/C) .
Egyptair's B777/200ER's have a capacity of 317 pax in a 3 class configuration with a range of 11,037 km
The new B777/300ER's will probably be in a 2 class configuration with a typical capacity of 365 to 460 pax (MS configuration not confirmed yet) and a range of 13,427 km .
Egyptair will start receiving these new A/C in 2010/2011 . The Airline is expected to deploy them on their key long-haul and medium-haul routes as well as some of the new routes announced earlier to N.America .

The 3 leased A330/200 are expected to arrive in 2008/2009 , but nothing is confirmed yet . They will also be brand new A/C .


I would like to thank our dear friend Horus for the heads up .

Wow!

Where are they being leased from?

Who will take their 772ERs (with PW)?

Who remembers when Egyptair had A340-600s on order? Another airline preferring the 773ER.

You can't argue with the 773ER...

What a second here !!! they are replacing the B777-200ER and keeping the A340-200 ??? isn't this kinda weird !!

But on the other hand, B777-300ER in Egyptair Colours are gonna be smokin' !!!!

Egyptair might not be filling up all the expecting capacity (although on some routes you can hardly find a seat !!) but when Egyptair hopefully joins Star Alliance and T3 opens the principle of a using CAI as a hub will get Egyptair filling these planes in no time.

I would expect the new B777-300ER be used on the following routes:

CAI-JFK (2 Aircrafts)
CAI-JED
CAI-DXB
CAI-KWI
CAI-BKK

and the remaining aircrafts could be used for opening new routes such as CAI-ORD and CAI-IAD

you need 77Ws to do CAI-DXB/JED?

The 77W is meant for longer volume routes. Id expect this airplane in LHR, JFK, and maybe even Japan.

short after MS post the order for the A346 they tasted the B777 capacity and capabilty and they decided that A346 won't fill their need, which was a smart move( although i love the A342 they have but can't argue with the B772)

I would agree with Ramik with opening T3 and joining Star alliance, it will be easy for them to fill the plans, for now most of their flights have a very good load factor.

True, i thought they would replace the A342 first, but i know for fact that the A342 is doing great in Japan and the Middel east where it need capacity

Agree on CAI - JFK 2 aircarfts specially with the plane to increase 2 extra flights a week.
CAI - BKK agree on this one too.
the rest can use the A342 or the A332.
i would add to that list CAI - LHR for sure.

some times specially in Hag and Ramdan time yes you can fill this so easily

Like i said above i agree on Both LHR and JFK but i don't think the will introduce this to japan since they are happy with the A342 on that route.

A bit risky, if only because 787s are coming fast to the USA and CAI may be on the list of AA, CO, DL.

United

+ Air China operate -200s

Two or three of the above might be looking for additional capacity.

But there will also be other airlines who may not already operate any 777s who'll be interested.

So, EK and MS are both starting to offload their first generation 777s? A sign of the times.

Great Job by Egyptair and Boeing. They should fly them to JFK, LHR, Asia.

How many 300ERs is this total, and whats the current overall 777 order total if anybody knows?

The A342 is a very flexible aircraft. It delivers A332 capacity over 772ER range. Until the 787 or A350 arrive, there's no real replacement.
Exceptions confirm the rule.

That's the big question indeed right now: how will MS expand to 75 aircraft before 2010 when they begin replacing current aircraft and are expanding less rapidly than we would suspect.. And what about the gap in seat capacity between the 773ER and the A332/A342? Personally I believe it would be more logic to keep the current 772ERs and to add (not replace) extra 777s

And why 773ERs and not an A350 order?

Well OHLHD, the fact is the Middle East and North Africa are one of the booming places in the world for Air Movement. On a more specific perspective, Egyptair has been tremendously improving in its quality of service that they offer. Therefore, the pending request for joining Star Alliance as well as the Opening of Terminal 3 in CAI in 2008 are sufficient reasons for filling those new planes.

But I can´t see your point. Because of a new terminal I can´t see more people flying as well if Egypt Air only joins in 10 years instead of 3 what are they doing then. I was thinking more about rising load factos etc. Hard facts so to say.  Smile

You are welcome , actually I don't blame ya for not understanding my point. Egyptair are currently adopting the Hub and Spoke system. This has to be supplemented with a fully functioning user friendly terminal which currently CAI doesn't have. Also, the load factor on a route like CAI-JFK or CAI-BKK are proving to be quite healthy.

Ok that makes sense to me. So I guess flights are generally very full. I guess that is why more and more routes are coming on Egypt Airs schedule. Will be interesting to follow.

The current terminal is cool. Big hazzle and craziness all over. Big grin At least it was like that when I was there.  Smile

LOL i think they should give CAI the IATA code of HEL instead of Helsinki in that case. I mean when I went to Helsinki everything is so quite, calm and extremely CLEAN !!! The exact opposite of a city like Cairo

Imagine the rest of Egypt when CAI looks like a European airport with a quite, calm and clean building and operations... The world truly upside down LOL

I believe Horus once showed some artist impression pictures of the new buildings at Sharm El Sheikh and Hurghada. I remember I was very impressed with the design. And the rest of Egypt like a European country would be heaven indeed...

Just out of curiosity, how many A340NGs have been ordered in 2007 vs. the 777NG?

Also, on a side note, how many A330's have been ordered to date?

Thanks.
I fly really fast and take a lot of chances.

I believe the number of A340-600 were 2 aircrafts with option on 2 more to replace the B747-300 that Egyptair used to have while the number of leased B777-300ER are 8 aircrafts so it is quite a huge difference.

The number of A330-200 ordered now are 5 plus 3 leased so in total are 8 new A330-200 will be added to the fleet of Egyptair's existing 7 A330-200 within the next 3 years !!!

Quoting HECA (Reply 24):
Personally I believe it would be more logic to keep the current 772ERs and to add (not replace) extra 777s

Egyptair has the "habit" of "regularly" changing its plans . When the B738's order was placed , they were talking about getting rid of the B735's then they decided to keep them ( as the B738 is not really a replacement for the B735 ) due to lack of short-haul A/C . Every summer rumors circulate about getting rid of the A342's but nothing happened so far .
My expectation is : They won't retire the 5 B777/200ER's that early but they might realize that they need them along with the new B777/300ER's (especially that new long-haul routes are expected to be announced ) .
