I'd suspect they may upgauge the second daily EWR-TLV flight to a 77W. Seems like they have good loads on that route. Possibly put a 77W on one of the EWR-India routes as well?
Is LAX-SYD a 77W? I could see that as a possibility for the January-February peak season on that route.
Yes, EWR-GRU is going from a 772 to a 77W, as are both EWR-TLV flights (one is a 787-10).
EWR-India, if they resume flights, given the raised risk potential for some sort of conflict in the Persian Gulf area, yes. LAX to SYD is not a 77W and never has been. It went from a 747-400 to a 777-200ER to a 787-9 over the years and remains a 789.
