Aeromexico 777 Retirements

Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:21 am

N776AM, ex-Varig, was retired first it would seem (had actually been stored since last November). This particular one seems to be destined for Austrian Airlines as OE-LPF, but I'm curious if the other ones will find new homes. They aren't that old, and by that I mean they were built within the last decade, not in the mid-to-late 90s like other 777s that have met their maker.

All the AM 777s are leased, so its up their owners to find new clients when the AM leases are up.

Haven't heard anything new, but OE-LPF is now out of storage and in Hong Kong being prepared for OS.

Apologies for digging up an old thread, but why start a new one when this one will suffice. Does anyone know the retirement schedule for the remaining three AM 777 currently in service?

Thank you.

Really? Now that suprises me. Am I mistaken but didn't PIA reject some Vietnam frames? I know they took two but didn't they want to take more?

A shame to see them go. AM was the last Latin American carrier of the 772 and their livery looked stellar on it. 789 will be a good replacement, though it offers 10 less Y seats compared to the 772, which makes quite the difference on routes to MAD and GRU that could use as many Y seats as possible.

It looks like N745AM was withdrawn from service on 13JAN and is currently enroute to AUH as AMX8528. Here is the FlightAware link .

All were delivered to ILFC. With the breakup there not sure all are still owned by same entity.

I appreciate the info. If the last goes 2/11/18, when is the next retirement?

It looks like these last two are doing the MEX-EZE runs for now.

Thanks.

Yes. And there are 2 left on property.

One retired in Marana just went to Hong Kong and will end up at Austrian; same thing for bird that went to Etihad. One more flying will go to Austrian as well.

N745AM is now wearing her new Norwind livery and plying the skies out of SVO using registration number VP-BJG.

Well, there were only two Latin American airlines flying the Boeing 777-200ER: Varig, from 2001 to 2005 and Aeroméxico, from 2006 to 2018.

By the way, LATAM will wet-lease some ex-SQ examples for a while to substitute those Boeing 787s now grounded due to the problem on their Rolls Royce engines.

I like the Nordwind logo.

So, two 777s ended up with Austrian, one with Nordwind and the fourth? Etihad? PIA?

-200ERs? Are those on top of the Wamos 744 and A330s?
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

Okay, so according to the Nordwind thread on this forum, two of the AM birds are going to Nordwind:

FLJ wrote:
777-2Q8ER (32718/554) ex AeroMexico N745AM
777-2Q8ER (32719/562) ex AeroMexico N746AM


That means two for Austrian and two for Nordwind? Am I correct that Nordwind got Diego and Frida, the two new-builds that AM got initially, and OS got the ex-RG birds?
Upcoming flights:
April/May: AM MEX-SCL 788 (J), AM EZE-MEX 789 (J).

Etihad is getting rid of 777s...and don't have 777-200ERs...why would they get AM's old ones?

Leases of this Boeing's 777s are for sure super low. N774AM (still seen and grounded at MEX) will leave the company by November of 2018.
