There will be some controversy with this move. Ali refused to serve his country, that will not sit well with veterans. Being a great boxer will not make up for that.

777-200IGW (VIIP-VIIY) GE90-90B engines rated at 94,000lbs of takeoff thrust - these had the "Denver thrust bump" option. In reality basically never use the full 94,000lbs.

I remember flying on a 747-136 from PIT-PHL-LHR sometime in the early 90s as a wee kid. At some point, they moved their flight to LGW and downsized to a 767-336ER. I'm not sure about the exact timeframe though.Jump to post

Flight time, even on the same route, will never be the same, even with the same aircraft. Many, many factors go into route planning. Some are listed above.
Even two 787s or two GEX on the same route will differ timewise given the winds are always changing.
