There have been very few 777 retirements so far this year, less than in recent years. Older 777s from JAL, ANA, Thai and Korean should be due to be parked in the desert though soon. Quite odd that SV is still operating three 77Es, two years after the majority of the fleet has been retired.Jump to post

I fully agree with Mr. Spohr, a single aisle aircraft is clearly inferior and unsuitable on longhaul flights. I once flew to the US with an Icelandair 757. I would never do that again, no matter what airline. And as LH does not compete at the very lowest, cheapest end of the competition, the A321XLR...Jump to post

As noted, they have 45 A350-900s on order which will likely handle the bulk of the 777-200ER replacement. This will leave 10 777-200ER and 19 777-200 (per Wikipedia) which will probably be replaced with additional 787-10 purchases (they have 8 in the fleet now with 6 more on order).

Delta operated 1 owned and 1 leased 744 newer than newest UA 744 and BA 744. And DL retired them too early (N675-676NW , both delivered in 2002).
