Re: Boeing 777 Production/Delivery Thread 2018

Mon Apr 30, 2018 9:15 am

Where can I find information about Future delivery schedules? Whenever I google or check A-net I just find the Current or Past deliveries. Specifically, is there a website, discussion group, or thread that shows the "estimated" delivery dates for the next 6 months to one year? For example, if I am curious about Emirates, United, or American's deliveries over the next 12 months, is there any place to see the Estimated delivery and flight-test dates? This kind of info would be useful for a visit to Boeing, or just for kicks to see the newly delivered airplanes landing at the respective carrier's bases. Thanks a lot in advance for this knowledge, I've been super frustrated trying to discover this kind of information on my own.

Spirit 777 shipset deliveries dropped to 9 in Q1 2018. That would be equal to production rate of 3 777 a month or 36 frames a year.

777X production phase in starting to make its impact. According to Leeham last year production rate of 777 classics in 2018 was to be 3.5/month. They might have dropped it slightly since then (or were just dividing total 777 classics by 12 and assuming classic rate would be constant all year, idk)

Which is within line of Boeing's guidance that 777 "Classic" production would be 3.5 per month starting this year.

The latest Boeing unfilled orders report shows there are 60 777-300ERs still to be delivered. I see that 18 of these are shown as for Unidentified Customers. Does anyone know whether these are likely to be built and who for ? Thanks.

I would say that some would be for Chinese carriers, the Air China 77W which did a test flight a couple of days ago is one of the UFO's

I wouldn't be surprised if some of those 77W will go to SV. Boeing had a big delegation from Saudi Arabia recently.

The majority, if not totality, are likely for Chinese customers. Boeing's policy is to list orders placed by CASC (China Aviation Supplies Holding Company) as UFOs until such time as they assign them to an airline.

Assuming the 18 frames are the three most recent UFO orders, that would be 8 each placed on 15-Mar-2017 and 20-Oct-2017 as well as 2 placed on 19-Oct-2017. So none would be for SV since that trip was too recent. That being said, this time last year SaudiGulf Airlines was looking at taking 15 777-300ERs so perhaps they ordered 8 as a UFO in October...

Boeing's delivery records show that they already delivered 779 77Ws through April 2018.

Their 777th 777-300ER was LN1550 - N2846U - United Airlines, delivered on March 28.

Don't know if it has been mentioned yet...but I believe the number of 777's delivered (1547) has surpassed the number of 747's delivered (1544)...by the end of April 2018. This, according to Wiki...hardly an official source. Haven't heard anything form Boeing, I wonder if they will mark the occasion.

It also would make the 777 the highest selling wide-body ever -- as long as you don't consider the A330/340 the same type.

1547 is correct, its the same from Boeing's website, there have been 5 777's delivered this month so its now at 1552. Total orders for all 777's stand at 1967 to the end of April

The Cathay Pacific bird wasn't delivered until 2000. I believe the first production delivery was Line #7 N777UA delivered in May of 1995,
making it 23.1 years old, and currently still active. Line #'s 2-6 were delivered later; some were probably test aircraft.
Sure would be nice if UA could preserve this legacy aircraft along with one of the 744's sitting at VCV into some sort of museum.
Look at the wonderful job DL has done with their museum in ATL.
With all the outsourcing, any room at SFOMX?

B-HNL is 777 L/N 1 and was the first prototype 777. After test flying and modifications it was delivered to Cathy Pacific in 2000. N777UA L/N 7 was the first aircraft in revenue service and still flying regular flights.

Very good new that Boeing will preserve the first 777 built. Hope they repaint it to the original Boeing colors it wore when it was doing test flights.

I would also like if UA or Smithesonian eventually preserves N777UA when it's time for retirement.

It would be interesting to know where it will be preserved. There is no better place than the Museum of Flight in Seattle. But do they have the space for it? They just moved their B-52 Bomber from Paine Field down to the Museum. I would love to see it there. Then they would have #1 of the B727, B737, B747 & B777. #1 of the B717 and B767 are scrapped and #1 B757 is still flying for Boeing defense but might be preserved there one day aswell.

It won’t be repainted into Boeing colours unfortunately. In fact it won’t be repainted at all and will continue to wear the current colours.

My source is an internal company communication that I cannot share sorry.
It is in XMN right now having it's interior and engines removed to be fitted into first of 5 ex-Emirates 773s to join our fleet. After that it will fly to Seattle (perhaps via HKG) and to the museum.

Why is that? Why not paint them there at Paine Field? They have a paint facility there in Everett.

They are usually busy with other planes so they have to send them to Portland so they can keep on schedule with orders, production, and deliveries

The two Japanese are in BSL, one of them even did a test flight recently. Already the one of Arabia is in the USA, since March of 2015, already must be finalizing. I would also like information on it, the HZ-MF9.
