Of course the 777 has no future, it's a 1995 plane. It's already reached retirement age. A lot of 777's are going to make great freighters.

World Airways essentially purchased themselves when the company went private in a 2007 deal that combined ATA and World into a single holding company, Global Aero Logistics. In 2014 World finally collapsed unable to service the huge debt or secure new capital.Jump to post

Edited to add: As someone noted on another site, this appears to be the last regularly scheduled passenger flight of any McDonnell Douglas aircraft in the United States. So really a pretty big deal.

Tragic event, will be interesting to find out how that person got onto the movement area. Barring a split second or two of seeing the aircraft coming and not being able to do anything death would have been instantaneous.

Planespotters.net is showing WN has parked a far bigger fraction of 737-700s than -800s. Even after accounting for the MAX grounding they're parking the smaller planes at a higher rate. https://www.planespotters.net/airline/Southwest-Airlines WN has not put any -800s into storage and they don’t hav...Jump to post
Yes, I was just guessing if the MAX situation continues when the Coronavirus situation is winding down that maybe WN might need to retain aircraft instead of having to further reduce their fleet. Of course, everyone has their fleets grounded, but after the virus situation is over, depending on dema...Jump to post
6674 due to exit HKG to GUM on the 23rd. Due to park in ROW right away. Any idea what routing they are going to take to get the plane from GUM to ROW? If #2019’s route (currently UA2721) is any indicator, it may fly n/s. Not sure an empty 767 can do that though. That’s gotta be getting pretty tight...Jump to post
