Here’s Crystal Cruises 777-200LR P4-XTL parked at LAX today, it will be doing cargo runs through LAX over the next few weeks. Just took off to head back to China (?) for PPE pick up.

They did not, I saw some pictures of the interior and it was still there, although there was some netting on the seats.

Would using these pax widebodies on shorter routes, even without main deck carriage, make sense, specifically for the likes of big freighter operations like CX, KE, CI and the China3. eg they put the 747/777 freighters on routes to ANC then an A330/A350 brings the cargo to the lower 48 states. As it is some of those freighter routes see those 747s etc stop at sometimes two or more US destinations on a loop, so obviously they don't need the full capacity to each destination, before heading back across the pacific. Would allow higher utilization of the pure freighters where they are needed, the @4000 miles from East asia to ANC, and ?possibly lower cost moving things around the continental US. May need to do some repacking in ANC though.

I think those flights and the cargo swap would run afoul of cabotage rules. Otherwise it amounts to running a foreign mini hub in ANC.

as far north as ANC is ? It's still US Domestic as it's a State. therefore they cannot change planes unless they're leaving the US for Asia or Europe. A nd I'm not sure even then.

as a matter if interest? Years ago a few foreign airlines used foreign and US Crews on the same plane in an interchange type of service where the plane stayed the same from the far east to Anchorage then picked up a new USA crew, Flight number and Destination and flew into the lower 48 delivered the goods and turned back to ANC where they swapped crews, Flight numbers , and headed home. I years ago worked with an Ex Braniff Crew that told me ab and 747 out that. But that was 1979 or 1980 when they told me that story as I was then qualifying to get my 727 and 747 FE ticket
