The Malaysian Aviation Commission (MAVCOM) has announced it has awarded AirAsia X (D7, Kuala Lumpur Int'l) air traffic rights to operate nine (9) weekly scheduled return flights between Kuala Lumpur Int'l and London Gatwick effective June 2017.

According to CAPA, to ply the route, the longhaul budget carrier will dry-lease a pair of B777-300(ER)s with their delivery scheduled for the second quarter of the year. The carrier had originally planned to use its incoming fleet of A330-900neo to serve Europe but opted to go the B777 lease route given the upgraded A330's delivery has now slipped to early 2019.

AirAsia X ended flights to Europe back in 2012 citing high fuel prices, "exorbitant" taxes, and weak travel demand. Back then, it used its now retired fleet of A340-300s to serve Paris Orly as well as London Stansted/London Gatwick (at different times).

AirAsia Group chief executive Tony Fernandes has also been quoted in the Thai press indicating Thai AirAsia X (XJ, Bangkok Don Mueang) may also launch direct Bangkok Don Mueang-Frankfurt Int'l, Germany flights this summer as well.

Have I missed some gossip on the Turkish 777 ln 1462? Would've expected to have seen it around from mid December but no sight of it. Is it broken?

It's here and fully painted. In storage as the current financial situation in Turkey, the airline has deferred the delivery for the time being. Still has not flown its B1.

A7A045 754 WE754 N59034 UAL 1470 322ER 62645
A1C7C1 755 WE755 N2135U UAL 1474 322ER 62646

N59034 / 1470 - Correct and currently painted with that reg
N2135U / 1474 - Correct and currently painted with that reg

The remaining are correct except my paperwork hasn't been updated with the new registrations which I know are correct on your list.

Bloomberg reports that Singapore Airline is close to ordering 20 777-9 + more 787s.

https://www.bloomberg.com/news/artic...pore-air-order


The order could already be announced this week. There's no talk about an earlier rumored longer 777-10 version 777X

Boeing press release on Singapore Airlines commitment to order. So it's not a firm order yet.


Boeing Statement on Singapore Airlines' Intent to Purchase 20 777-9s, 19 787-10s

Quote:
National carrier to become newest 777X customer
SEATTLE, Feb. 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] is pleased that Singapore Airlines has announced its commitment to purchase 20 777-9s and 19 787-10 Dreamliners. The national carrier and 787-10 launch customer also announced its recommitment for its previous order for 30 787-10 airplanes.

When finalized, the order will be posted on the Boeing Orders and Deliveries website.

"Singapore Airlines has been a valued Boeing customer for more than 50 years and we are honored they have selected the 777X and additional 787-10s to expand its future widebody fleet. They are the most efficient, capable and passenger preferred airplanes in their class," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President & CEO Kevin McAllister. "We appreciate the trust, commitment and endorsement of Singapore Airlines, and look forward to delivering market-leading capability to one of the world's most widely respected industry leaders."

Advanced technology including a new composite wing, all-new engines and superior aerodynamics will result in the incredible fuel efficiency promised by the 777X family. The 777-9 will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine commercial jet in the world with the lowest operating cost per seat of any commercial airplane and no competitor in its market segment.

I like the current Air Canada livery. BTW, that Swiss livery looks like an ambulance, of all sorts.

It appears that Singapore Airlines will likely assign the 777-9 to their transpacific routes. That means it will fly routes likes SFO-HKG-SIN and LAX-NRT-SIN.

I don't think it will have the range to pull off a nonstop SFO-SIN, though...? And what will be of their 77Ws that are used on those Transpacific services?

The 777-9 will replace their 777-300ERs, by the time these new 777s will be delivered the current 777-300ERs will already start to leave their fleet.
