Egypt Air Dispose of 2x 777-200's

Thu Oct 25, 2012 9:53 pm

Egyptair is retiring two of its 777s, which reportedly are destined for PIA.

PIA will also take two ex-Saudia 747-300s.

They have two 1997 deliveries and two 2001 deliveries. If they're looking to sell to raise money, I'd guess it be the newer ones...

PIA's fleet of 777-200s are all more recent builds.

What is PIA? Is that a real airline code?

EgyptAir 777-200ER have Pratt engines, PIA's 777 have GE 90 engines. Why would PIA want odd ball older 777's ?

Remember this is PK.

At one point, they were operating 747s with PW, GE and RR engines concurrently.

How many MS planes are in storage? Last time I flew through CAI, I saw quite a few!

First of all, there aren't many used 777s available. And the price may be another aspect.

It is the correct ICAO code - PK is the IATA code. IATA is used by the reservation and interlining systems, ICAO by ATC and flightcrew

That's not that new: http://www.ch-aviation.ch/portal/new...hread

Thanks for that, so its two MS-777s instead of two at least ten-year-older SV-743s.

That article infers that they wanted a lease arrangement for the Hajj season, which is nearly over.

Thanks, some people forget that there is more than one way to identify.

Both are acceptable codes/abbreviations... like UA and UAL...
