Air India 777-200LR On You Tube

Tue Feb 20, 2007 3:28 pm

Not sure if anybody has seen this or posted it on the forum. Really cool video of Air India's first 777-200LR in Cairns.

When will this aircraft enter service for Air India? As much as I love the 747-400, the 777-200LR is growing on me each and every day.

Wow!!!  Wow!

Nice, very nice aircraft... I can't wait to fly in an AI 772LR....

Which routes will fly? Maybe to LON or will be use only in Asian, Middle East and Oceania routes?

Come on! It's a 772LR for god's sake....they'll use it on all those non-stops to the US that they've been planning and we a.nutters have been talking of for months now....  Big grin

Nice to see the video clip but the aircraft appears to be "pressed together" on both sides which makes the 777 look odd, like a 777SP so to speak.

I couldn't agree with you more. Hopefully when DL gets their 772s we might get a rare once in awhile visit here in SLC from one!  biggrin
