Thank you. I have a follow-up question because I assume you have access to a reliable source.
Will the remaining four 772LRs (VT-ALE onwards) also be delivered with the aux fuel tanks?
I am surprised that there has not been more publicity. The AI
press release when they received VT
-ALD did not mention the increased range (more than the previous -200LRs). Boeing did not issue a press release about the first -200LR delivered with the aux fuel tanks. With the aux tanks, VT
-ALD would be the longest range airliner ever in service
- one would think that this ought to have been something that both AI
and Boeing would have liked to "boast" about - it is good PR
