Will Uzbekistan Buy 777?

Will Uzbekistan Airways buy 777s? It will be nice to see 777 in Uzbek color. And they really need to retire their old russian plane.

They just ordered 2 additional 767-300 back in November, 2000

I don't think there is a need for the 777, they do not have a route to support it.

Whilst Tashkent is fast becoming the major business and tourism centre in Central Asia, the likelihood of 777s being introduced into the HY fleet are very remote, in the short to medium term.

I don't know what Russian aircraft need to be replaced, because what they still have in their fleet are on the whole, late model aircraft, which still have many years of service in them.

Any plans for HY to restart service to MAN with 757s? I heard they were going to via AMS but nothing came of this. Anyone know why?
HY will not order 777s in the near future as what someone said, they do not have a route which requires it.
