Re: Boeing 777 Production/Delivery Thread - 2020

Thanks Stitch.....maybe TG will take these as a replacement for some older 77W's that might be coming up for lease expiry, or to replace the 6 77E's they still have. But I wouldn't be surprised if these 3 get built as white tails and then desert stored. They could use them to replace the 380s and 7...

In the 70's you had TW760/761 SFO-LAX-LHR-CDG all 747. There were also 747's between ORD and LAS in the 70's. In 1980 there was TW904/903 JFK-MAD-BCN. MAD-BCN was really short. Indeed, BCN was replaced as a tag from LIS. I think at times it was also served nonstop. There was also a blink-and-you-mi...
