It would be an expensive proposition for a dual class carrier like DL to reconfigure these B77Ws as per their cabin requirements.
However I feel 9Ws 4 A333s seating 293 pax ie 34J + 259Y should find homes very fast with preference given to an airline that would want to purchase all the jets together. I foresee DL and TK being the front runners for the 4 A333s.
Isn't AC also on the prowl for more used A333s? They need to replace the ageing 763s of their Rouge subsidiary and Air Transat needs to replace the A310s...And with the engine problems of the 787s, i think these A333s would be an excellent interim solution for many airlines, methinks
The recent A333 AC took in are all RR powered and all ex-SQ. They would source again from same source if they want more. 9W are GE powered, only few are flying those GE powered A333, but not as rare as PW.
