Pretty sure that this is the second of two 777 retro liveries, the first being the burgundy and white 777 upthread.


Seems entirely plausible. Thank you.

How weight restricted are EK's 77Ws on their Florida routes? I'm curious as well, because I'm a bit surprised. The 77W has flown EK's SFO route for a while now, and Florida is considerably closer, so I'm guessing there has to be a minimal weight restriction westbound, if anything. Depending on the ...

Since the plan is to do more of a shortened -1000 than a lengthened -900, that would push that figure up by at least 5-6T, being optimistic again. The plan as far as I know is to join the forward section of the -900 in front of the wing to the wing and aft section of the -1000. That should be 8-9 t...
