The MD-11 came right after, but was only good for 12-13 and the A343 was too close to the 777. For most of those carriers, the...

El Al after the withdrawal of the 744s

Hi
The 744s will soon exit El Al’s fleet.
Thus, the biggest a/c type they will have in their fleet will be the 772.
I understand that they could increase frequencies, but on the busiest routes (JFK, LHR, CDG), wouldn’t it be important for them to get a bigger a/c than the 772?
779X maybe?
