I'm flying from ZHR to MIA on December back on January. Will I be able to fly the B77W?

Depends on the weekday

SWISS in winter 2016/17 season plans to expand capacity on Zurich – Miami route, as it introduces the new Boeing 777-300ER aircraft on this route. From 30OCT16 to 24MAR17, the 777-300ER will operate on 4 of 14 weekly flights, replacing Airbus A330-300 aircraft.

LX066 ZRH0950 – 1435MIA 333 D
LX064 ZRH1315 – 1800MIA 77W x246
LX064 ZRH1315 – 1800MIA 333 246

LX067 MIA1700 – 0805+1ZRH 333 D
LX065 MIA1950 – 1100+1ZRH 333 246
LX065 MIA2005 – 1100+1ZRH 77W x246

Apparently GRU went out of the table due economical crisis in Brazil and low yields.
The A340 to 77W swap was initally scheduled for October but was cancelled so far.
Sad news once this is one of the best looking 77W out there and I'd love to see them here...

Is there really such high demand on those routes, or is it for cargo of crew training purpose?
I could understand ATH and VCE getting high demand in holiday season, but PRG & HAJ?

And on side note: PRG must be the 1st and only destination getting both LX's B777W and CS100 (besides the obvious ZRH home base of course)

It's for training purposes only, of course.

I flew LX86 (ZRH-YUL) earlier this month in J and half of the J cabin was empty and I over heard many people, including myself, flying on award fare. I can't imagine that the 77W is going to stay on YUL seeing an astonishing award availability in the summer almost daily. I could see the 77W being far more beneficial in SFO this summer. However, if I can say, the service on the 77W was amazing and the single seats in J were very comfortable and private.

Cheers,

The one daily 77W rotation ZRH-GVA-ZRH has heavy demand from passengers connecting to/from longhaul LX flights at ZRH. It was frequently an A321 in the past (with occasional A330 and A340 substitutions...I've been on both on that flight) and the A321s were usually full or close to it. They don't want to lose potential longhaul traffic by not being able to accommodate the passengers on the short GVA-ZRH-GVA connecting sectors.

I don't see the 77W scheduled on ZRH-PRG/VCE/ATH, at least over the next couple of weeks. Where are you seeing those flights? The only shorthaul 77W flights I can find are the daily ZRH-GVA-ZRH rotation and 4/week ZRH-HAJ-ZRH.
