SFO has many 777 flights because this plane has pretty much replaced the 747 on many long international routes. Cathay Pacific has now switched to the 777-300ER on its SFO-HKG route, and Singapore Airlines has done so for several years.

Does anyone know why United, Delta, and American Airlines are not purchasing the 777X for their international flights, especially as United and Delta are set to retire their ageing 747-400s in coming years?

There was even a time when Singapore Airlines sent the A380 on the Singapore-SFO via Hong Kong (SQ001/002) service, but has been downgraded to the B77W. Possibly because it wanted to keep its 2x daily rotation for SFO, which is unusual for the airline doing North American services, if not all of its long-haul, transcontinental flights (with the exception of London, which has more frequencies than SFO). And by the way, that SQ aircraft is bound for Seoul/Incheon, the other routing for the airline, en route to Singapore.

The airlines that served SFO originally with the 747 that have downsized (if not optimized) to the 772 or 77W include (cf. exceptions below):

- Air China (PEK) -- to be upgraded again to 74H this year
- Air France (CDG)
- Air New Zealand (AKL)
- Cathay Pacific (HKG)
- EVA Air (TPE)
- Japan Airlines (NRT) -- when it moved to HND, it became the 788 then 77W
- KLM (AMS) -- downgraded to A332
- Lufthansa (FRA)
- Philippine Airlines (MNL)

British Airways, China Airlines, United Airlines, and Virgin Atlantic still operate 747s to and from SFO, while Qantas used to operate 747s (but since discontinued). I wonder, though, if ANA used the 747 to SFO before acquiring the 772 or 77W.

KLM is always flying with smaller planes in the winter to SFO. First the MD11 and since winter '14 with a A332. In the summer it will be a B747 again.

Yep. But remember that the MD-11 is gone, so you have little choice but to use the A332. Maybe KLM should send the B777 instead of the B747 to optimize its fleet.

United and Delta have already lined up smaller replacements for their 747s. Considering that both airlines also didn't order the 777-300ER it could simply be too big for them. United is now considering the 777-300ER to replace their 747s a bit earlier, if they will do that it will also mean that a possible 777X order will again come later. Same goes for AA, they only got the 777-300ER recently, there's simply no need to order the 777X right now. Delta might actually be the 1st American airline to order if they want to replace their 777-200LRs. But with Delta you never know how they look at new planes, it's not a given that they will order the 777X.

Actually, Lufthansa flying to San Francisco uses the A380 (from Frankfurt) and A340-600 (from Munich) pretty much year-round now.

Yes, there has been a lot of talk about United Airlines getting at least 10 777-300ER's, most likely for its transpacific routes to replace the rapidly-aging 747-400. Boeing may offer United a great deal to buy the 777-300ER at very reasonable cost.

That's correct. I kept MUC out because it has been using the A346, not the B744.

Smart move from Boeing. This will definitely make it easier for them to sell the remaining slots.

Boeing Rolls Out 777 Upgrade Plan

Ever careful with its stewardship of the cash-generating 777 program, Boeing is planning a series of upgrades to ensure the aircraft remains competitive in the long-range market well after the 777X derivative enters service.

The plan, initially revealed in January, will be laid out in detail by Boeing for the first time on March 9 at the International Society of Transport Air Trading meeting in Arizona. Aimed at providing the equivalent of 2% fuel-burn savings in baseline performance, the rolling upgrade effort will also include a series of optional product improvements to increase capacity by up to 14 seats that will push the total potential fuel-burn savings on a per-seat basis to as much as 5% over the current 777-300ER by late 2016.

At least 0.5% of the overall specific fuel-burn savings will be gained from an improvement package to the aircraft’s GE90-115B engine, the first elements of which General Electric will test later this year. However the bulk of the savings will come from a broad swath of changes to reduce aerodynamic drag and structural weight. Additional optional improvements to the cabin will also provide operators with more seating capacity and upgraded features that would offer various levels of extra savings on a per-seat basis, depending on specific configurations and layouts...

A couple of news reports about upcoming orders for the 777 classic.


EVA Air has revealed that they will soon be ordering 5 777Fs to replace their 747-400Fs

http://www.chinatimes.com/realtimene...1001924-260410


One could say that this order will be 1 less order for the 747-8F, but since Boeing has also has to bridge the gap towards the EIS of the 777X they will be happy to take any 777F order.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Swiss is expected to order 3 more 777-300ERs, it could even be announced later today on Boeings weekly order update.

http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/ne...yes-more-b777s

This would bring their total order to 9 777-300ERs, replacing even more A340-300s.


~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

TUI AG is considering the 777-300ER to replace the 747-400s at their French leisure airline Corsair.

http://www.ch-aviation.com/portal/ne...-fleet-renewal


Until last week it looked like TUI would sell the airline to the parent company of Air Caraοbes that had plans to give Corsair an all A350-900 fleet. But as those talks collapsed last week TUI now has to come up with a new fleet renewal plan and the 777-300ER has come up as the 1st option to replace the 747s. It might not be a new order, recent rumors before the now collapsed take-over was announced already had the airline taking over some 777-300ERs from TAM. But that hasn't been confirmed by both parties involved.

That whole thing seems strange to me. Firstly, Swiss has an all-airbus fleet so they will have to train current pilots to 777 or hire new who have license. Secondly, the A340-300s they supposedly will replace are configured with 219 seats in 3 classes. A 77W can comfortably seat 80-100 more passengers maintaining the same seats sizes and 3 class configuration. That's quite a drastic increase in capacity although they probably need it, otherwise why not go with a A330-300 or even B777-200ER rather than 777-300ER. But my guess is that the main reason behind this order is a very good offer from Boeing combined with the lengthy backlogs of the new and significantly more fuel efficient A350 and B787
