Start Date Soon On First AC 773?

Fri Jan 19, 2007 2:46 am

With delivery of the first AC 777-300ER scheduled for March, the prodution start date must be with a few weeks by now.

I know Boeing doesn't usually allow photos of their assembly line but I would LOVE to see a bare metal 777 with a red maple leaf on the tail fin....

That would be sexy.

I have to say, prior to the announcement of their new Boeing orders, I was afraid AC was going to retire their 767s and entirely eliminate Boeing from their fleet.

I'm wondering if AC will even put on the aircraft type sticker onto their B777s.
The freshly painted heavies don't seem to have the "Boeing 767-300ER" markings on them.

I second that. AC's current livery is awesome, the 773 will be indescribable with that mint green livery..  Big grin

A bit off topic but 270-seat B772LRs are scheduled Toronto/Hong Kong starting Aug 2, replacing 267-seat A345s.
