Last B777 Flight To Fra!

Sun Sep 30, 2001 6:27 pm

Hi there!
I am sad to tell the FRA spotters that tomorrow the 1st of october will be the last flight of a boeing b777-200 to FRA for an unknown period.(Continental Shedule) The tripple7 will be replaced through a B767-200!, whats meight be interesting. But iam sad about the fact thats know impossible to catch NYC2000 in FRA. It was hard enough whilest she comes to FRA, mowaday i have to travel to Manchester or CDG for her....damed.

We have a Delta 777 summer schedule to Atlanta from Dublin - it was our first and only 777 schedule. Its moving back to a 767 for the winter. Have yet to catch the Winter Olympics jet

I would change anytime our B772 (MH and AA) with some A340, of which we don't have none anymore, after CX left ZRH and SriLankan lsot some of its A343.

I would change 90% of the A319, A320, 737 and Avro's for something else.... Big grin

FRA still have UA,SV,KU EK B777 so no reason to be sad.

I would be more sad if FRA would lost the USA A330

There you're right. Send me your AA/MH 777 for our SriLankan A340. Would that be a great deal?
regards Tim

Where is your info from? Both Amadeus CRS and CO's website still show a 777.

I think it's really more dramatic for DUS-EWR which CO stopped altogether and LH is rumored to pull out too.

Staffan,

It seems that you're also waiting to see some 777's at BRU.

However, when I returned from FRA on July 10th 2001, and when I was on my way to the parking lot S7, I saw a B777 taking off. If I'm not mistaking, I think it was a Malaysian B777.

Anyhow, this is not a scheduled service I think, so maybe some other company hired the aircraft for just one single flight or so...

Ivan, it would have been cool to see that!

I wonder who will be the first to fly scheduled flights to BRU with 777...

Staffan,

I don't think we'll see North-American B777's here at BRU. All North-American operators use B767's or even B757 (CO), and I think they'll stick to these aircraft for quite a while.

I think we'll have to wait untill some Asian or Australian airline starts a scheduled B777 service to BRU.

Anybody has suggestions?

Ivi, that's why I doubted the original report, for which we yet don't have a source.

Hi Konstantin,
actually it is from the FRAPORT Flight Planner.
There was also mentioned that GA will use the 742 between the 3rd and October the 10th and it was true! I was sooooo lucky to see it yesterday Big grin

p.s. Gulf kommt wohl mit A340 zum Winterflugplan. Aber no idea ob das jetzt auch so stimmt Big grin
