Re: New Aeroflot 77Ws and A359 being stored

Certainly an A359 will be easier to fill than a 77W. Those Boeings might end up somewhere else.

New Aeroflot 77Ws and A359 being stored

https://www.skyliner-aviation.de/regdb. ... av4&page=4

Two new 777-300ER have been ferried to VCV for storage, possibly not taken up by Aeroflot, possibly for longterm stoage until the Corona crisis is largely over. In any case, these planes are not needed.

At the moment, American doesn’t plan to accelerate any 777-200ER retirements. The current plan is to begin retiring some once the new batch of 787-9s arrive in 2023.


So no considerable shrinking of the longhaul fleet is planned?

Better than firing so many people would be an alternative where, natural retirements und an reemployment stop aside, the whole workforce would accept reduced payments for, lets say, the next three years. Something like what the LH pilots are offering.
