Just for the record, the 777-200LR and the 777F came after the 777-300ER, so it's not the latest 777 model.

Paine Field blog is showing pics of one of AeroFlot's 777 doing some taxi tests. Anyone know when this bird will be delivered?

Delta does indeed use the 777-200LR and the 777F is used by FedEx Express and Southern Air. AA is not the only operator of the latest 3 777 models that where developed around the same time.

In fact, Delta operates ten (10) B77Ls in its fleet, along with QR, PK, and EK.

Is that true that Boeing 777-300ER enable airlines to withdraw their Boeing 747-400 and elder Airbus A340?

And which airline have already done so?

I remember three airlines that have already done that: Singapore Airlines (SQ), Japan Airlines (JL), and All Nippon Airways (NH), although SQ acquired the A380 in the process and still has the A340-500. And JL and NH have gone further to get B787s on top of the B777s.

Hmmm I thought Canadian operated the B747-400 routes for Air Canada? I can't remember the story of how Air Canada operated B747s since Canadian operated them to Asia from Vancouver.

The 777s replaced their A340s.

I remember now... AC operated A343s and A345s, and they used them for YVR and YYZ to Asia flights.

Launch of Boeing 787-10X has implications on 777X programme

As Chicago-based plane-maker Boeing nears the authority to offer (ATO) milestone for its proposed 323-seat doubled-stretched 787-10X variant with a launch expected shortly thereafter, the ultra efficient medium-haul airplane is poised to propel the once-beleaguered 787 Dreamliner programme onto higher grounds and unlock the pent-up demand for the aircraft. However, a Boeing 787-10X launch may carry broader implications on another future widebody programme currently under evaluation, the revamped 777X that is due to enter into service by the end of this decade.

Importantly, the 787-10X which has a range of 6,700nm (nautical miles) when equipped with General Electric (GE) GEnx-1B engines or 6,750nm on versions powered by Rolls-Royce Trent 1000-TEN (Thrust Efficiency New Technology) engines, is likely to undermine the business case of its larger sibling, the proposed 353-seat 777-8X despite the latter’s longer range at around 8,000nm and its status of being planned as a 777-200ER replacement.

Yes, both the 77W and 77L are the newer variants of the 777...

77W - Boeing 777-300ER
77L - Boeing 777-200LR

I've just remember, Garuda Indonesia will withdraw their fleet of Boeing 747-400 once they received their Boeing 777-300ER in July 2013.

I don't know if Philippine Airlines (PR) will withdraw its five B744s as soon as it receives its six B77Ws... however, the 744s are vital for heavily-traveled routes, like Manila to Hong Kong, Cebu, Davao, Bangkok, and the US.
