No 777-300ER deliveries in February.

The only frame I’ve seen reported as in production is L/N 1648 for United.

Unfilled orders at the end of February still stand at 19, according to Boeing figures released yesterday ;

Aeroflot - 3
BOC - 3
KLM - 2
Novus for British - 4
Pakistan - 5
United - 1
Unidentified - 1

No cancellations or conversions.

There is going to be quite a delivery gap between the end of the legacy 777's and the first 777X's.

The gap will be largely filled by freighters but Boeing will most likely need to slow production further.

No information but my ‘instinct’ is that the 4 for British, 2 for KLM and 1 for United are firm , whilst the other 12 are all to some extent doubtful. Waiting on firing order updates !

Clearly visible on the last FAL picture at Matt Cawby's Paine Field blog of Feb 22th (exact date of the picture is not known) is an Aeroflot 777-300ER (look for the applied sticker)
See : http://www.paineairport.com/images/kpae18193c.png
And : http://kpae.blogspot.com/2020/02/paine- ... ry-22.html

My calculated (provisional ) guess would be : L/N 1652 C/N 65310 B777-300ER VQ-BFM AEROFLOT (WE350) ????

Look closer (as in enlarge the picture): The one behind the Aeroflot is .... also Aeroflot. That will be the 20th. And the one on the right is a 777-F, looks like it has a DHL sticker.

B-20EN is LN1650, WF029.
WF028 returned as B-20EM.

1652 is Aeroflot, currently in the 45-04 paint hangar in eurowhite. Order should be Aeroflot, DHL, Aeroflot.

Good spotting guys, presumably the third for Aeroflot will not be far behind.

I am curious what will happen to the (fast approaching) L/N 1657, according several sources allocated to the first 777F for Air Bridge Cargo (Leased from DAE Capital ), seen the present financial difficulties of the Volga Dnepr group, the parent of ABC ?
Does ABC want to introduce a new aircraft type in these circumstances, or will it be leased by DAE to another operator ?

The report you link has difficulties with basic math:
In total, the airline operates a fleet of 21 B747Fs: six B747-400Fs and 18 B747-8Fs.

The basic premise stands: Volga-Dnepr has too much debt and capacity, and not enough business. Introducing a new type should not be their top priority, IMHO.

Perhaps they are planning to park the 747-400Fs and use the 777Fs in their place? The 777F has significantly better operating economics and if over-capacity is an issue, the 777F is a smaller frame (but can still lift a significant amount by weight).

:wideeyed: Now that you mention it, indeed! Either the new scheme is for the A350 only (unlikely), or they forgot to inform Boeing (stranger things have happened...) :hissyfit:

It's a stunningly beautiful photo btw :bigthumbsup:

Think he means when will it be ready from the interior outfitting work.

Aeroflot probably doesn’t have the paint schematic for the new livery ready for the 777 yet, at least in time for Boeing.

I understand, but even the 747-8, which is bigger, doesn't take that long. The HZ-MF9 has been in AFW since May 2015

You would think that before introducing a new identity they would have thought about things like this. It's a bit amateur-hour for a large national carrier if thats the reason.
