Here's an oddity on SFO's operations: as early as last Sunday, British Airways has downgauged its aircraft on the first daily flight, BA285/284, in which the Boeing 747-400 that has been the aircraft of choice has been replaced by the smaller B777 aircraft (772 and 77W).

Etihad has one of the most beautiful liveries out there. However, that font they use to write Etihad is very, very tacky.

I guess because they also fly the A380 for the evening flight which is what I guess the business class passengers take, with BA285/84 being tailored towards economy

Most business passengers choose flights based on their schedule, not aircraft type. Most leisure passengers choose flights based on price.

That might be part of the explanation. In fact, BA287/86 is now a daily A380 rotation, similar to Emirates, Lufthansa, and Air France. The more important question is, what happened to its B744s that used to operate this route?

I arrange my business travel to make sure I am on an interesting plane, if possible.
I flew on an Air France A380 (GSP to JFK to CDG to MUC) when a Delta A330 (GSP to ATL to MUC) is much more convenient for me. I flew on a 777 (GSP to DTW to PEK) when other flights were less total time. I flew on a United 747 (GSP to ORD to AMS to MUC), even though I am a Delta Diamond, just because I wanted to be on that plane instead of a 767...

I am not sure if I am in the 'most' group or not.

You come under the "airliner nut" group just like me & many of us. We choose a particular service just to go on a particular aircraft type.
I flex to India, Mumbai this week SYD-DXB-BOM just to fly the A380 when I could've flown a shorter route such as SYD-HKG-BOM or SIN-BOM.

Some of you who aren't dopey planespotters might remember the BA 777 G VIIO that suffered an uncontained engine failure before takeoff in Vegas in september 2015 and was evacuated on the runway with no casualties other than knocks.

She has been fully repaired and is back in revenue service again flying sectors from London to hot holiday destinations since last month.

A reminder of what she looked like only 6 months ago, I was sure she was a gonner.

Alitalia bought GE90-94B powered B777-200ER LN436, formerly Vietnam Airlines' VN-A141.
It underwent cabin refurbishing to C30W24Y239, already repainted. Will be registered EI-FNI

Start your engine…testing begins on first GE9X engine



Ground testing is underway on the first full GE9X development engine, which is the world’s largest commercial aircraft engine, at GE Aviation’s Peebles Testing Operation.
“The entire GE9X team—from engineering to sourcing to value streams to development assembly—devoted countless hours to enable this achievement to occur,” said Bill Millhaem, general manager of the GE90/GE9X engine programs at GE Aviation. “The ground testing will generate data on the full engine system and aerodynamic performance, mechanical verification, and aero thermal system validation.”

“We would like to convey our congratulations to the GE team for its achievement of this milestone,” said Bob Feldmann, Boeing 777X vice president and general manager. “GE’s commitment to technology maturation throughout the GE9X development program continues to deliver results for the 777X program. We look forward to working together with GE to deliver this great airplane to our customers.”

Maturation testing of the GE9X engine began about five years ago and has progressed from component-level all the way to the first full engine to test (FETT). FETT brings all the GE9X technologies together to demonstrate their operability as a complete propulsion system.

Compared to other engine programs, the GE9X FETT happened earlier in the development process, just a mere six months after the engine design was finalized. This timing assures all learnings from FETT will be captured in the certification engines. Next year will be a busy year for the GE9X program with the start of certification testing and flight testing on GE Aviation’s flying test bed. Engine certification is anticipated in 2018.


click for full size

With almost 700 GE9X engines on order, the GE9X engine will be in the 100,000 pound thrust class and will have the largest front fan at 134 inches in diameter with a composite fan case and 16 fourth generation carbon fiber composite fan blades. Other key features include; a next-generation 27:1 pressure-ratio 11-stage high-pressure compressor; a third-generation TAPS III combustor for high efficiency and low emissions; and CMC material in the combustor and turbine.
Along with GE Aviation technology and advanced material, the GE9X engine also contains the low-pressure turbine module and accessory drive train (ADT) kit composed of the inlet gearbox, transfer gearbox and accessory gearbox, connecting shafts and related attachments) from Avio Aero, a GE Aviation business.

The ADT, manufactured at the Rivalta plant, allows the engine and the aircraft to function properly and supplies energy drawn from the engine itself for a variety of functions. The inlet gearbox or IGB draws motor energy from the high pressure compressor of the engine, and the transfer gearbox or TGB transmits it to the accessory gearbox (AGB) on which the engine and aircraft accessories are installed. The AGB provides the power for these accessories, such as the fuel pump, oil pump, hydraulic pumps for flight controls, air turbine to start the engine, as well as various onboard tools and commodities for the pilots and passengers. For the GE9X, the AGB is the largest yet most compact AGB ever made by Avio Aero, with only 10 axles to drive nine accessories compared with the 11 axles driving eight accessories on the GE90. Additionally, the fuel accessories are connected to each other via full conduits in an additional small fuel adapter installed directly on the AGB, which reduces the external pipe system to improve the engine profile.

“The reduction in the number of axles,” said Rocco Pellettieri, project engineer for the GE9X at Avio Aero, “not only benefits weight, but also reduces the part count and simplifies the supply chain. The design with fewer axles but more accessories compared to the GE90 was made possible thanks to complex optimization studies that allowed us to achieve more with less.”
IHI Corporation, Snecma and Techspace Aero (Safran), and MTU Aero Engines AG are participants in the GE9X engine program.

Im afraid to say that cabin refurbishing has yet to be done. It will be done soon in AUH.

These are late photos. The plane was already delivered. I was in the factory last Saturday and there is no Qatar in assembly, nor one on the flight line or paint. In fact Boeing tweeted congratulating them on their 50th 777 - A7-BEI which was just delivered.
