Used B777 And A330/40´s.

Are there already B777´s and A330/40`s in duty by airlines which got those types used ?
And do you think that these planes will have a similar life-span like DC10´s, B747-1/200`s, DC9`s, A300`s, etc ?

Well, as far as I know, many A342's were bought up by airlines and then sold.

Last winter, when SU had their 777s parked at SVO, some were wondering if these would be the first second-hand 777s on the market. Now it looks like the ones of Air Europe will be the first to find a new operator.

As for their life-span, it is mostly determined by the ability of the airplane to make money for the airline. The 777 looks like it will be able to do that for quite some time. At least as long as the -10s. The life-span of the A332 will come close to that too.

Emirates To Be The First Airline To Sell 777s

Fri Sep 15, 2000 5:08 am


Emirates Airlines should be among the first airline to sell their 777-200As a second hand.
They have planned to replace their non-ERs aircraft with -200LRs, and possibly the rest of the fleet (-200ERs and -300s with respectively -200LRs and -300LRs).

Best regards,
