And a 777 is a hell of a lot more fun than an energiser bunny!

Anyone care to speculate on the likely destination of these aircraft?

I think Air France or Emirates will get most of the 777LR and Varig Brasil will get a lot of the 777-200ER to replace MD-11s. I also think Vietnam Airlines will get their announced 3 777-200ER on Letter Of Intent from ILFC. Biman Bangladesh is another potential 777-200ER customer along with Qatar Airways and follow on orders for Continental and China Southern. The last mentioned may also get some of the 777-LR. This order by ILFC is not yet finalized, so this is a bit premature. For more info on the 777, see my webpage. The777Man
