To wander off topic slightly, what about oldest B747-200? Is it still in service, and if so with who?

Actually, the oldest 777 will be operated by Cathay Pacific when it's delivered by the end of the year.

Sammyk-
Are you sure about this?

>>Actually, the oldest 777 will be operated by Cathay Pacific when it's delivered by the end of the year. <<

You meant that ex-United N777UA?? That's was my second flight and my friend took picture of my plane up the air on the approach!

Big777jet, Cathay Pacific has agreed to buy the first 777 built by Boeing. This aircraft was used for testing purposes and has never been in revenue service. They are currently modifying this aircraft by converting the interior to Cathay Pacific specs, and re-engining it with Rolls-Royce engines, instead of the Pratt & Whitney ones that are in place. I believe United was offered this aircraft, but they showed little interest in it.

I am not sure what you mean by "ex-United", I don't think there are any "ex-United" 777's out there. Now that I think about it, I can't seem to think of any 777's that are no longer with their original operator. Anyone?
