United formalized the conversion of 10 787 orders to 10 777-300ER orders last week.

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/ind...ers-deliveries

http://finance.yahoo.com/news/united...113000852.html

1st delivery will already be early 2016.

United has also said in their Q1 earnings report that they will reconfigure 10 777-200s for domestic use.



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

At Boeings Q1 earnings call they also talked about the open delivery slots for the classic in the next couple of years before the EIS of the 777X


"777 Classic is essentially sold out in 2016, half sold out in 2017 and many slots sold in 2018. 777X enters production in 2018."

"(On 777): JM: We have about half of the orders for the 777 Classic we need to fill the bridge. We are feathering in some new technology on -300ER so it is derisked for 777X. We’re on budget, slightly ahead on derisking. The technical advances or reliability is coming in a little more robustly than we had hoped."

http://leehamnews.com/2015/04/22/boe...on/#more-15461

Still no mention of a possible/likely rate reduction.

Huh... that means Delta will be the only big airline not ordering the B77W, and is the second American airline to operate that wildly-successful aircraft (behind AA). Now, I wonder if the B772ERs will also be reconfigured to become domestic aircraft as well, given that it operates a lot of it (with diverse layouts too to boot)... and will that also mean it will slowly retire its B747s as well once those are being introduced?

Here's what I personally think: the ten-plane 777-300ER order by United may be only be part of a larger 777 order. I wouldn't be surprised that United buys as many as 30 new 777-300ER's to completely replace the aging 747-400 fleet by 2018, especially since Boeing has the production slots to fulfill the order very rapidly.

An important aspect of this order is that Boeing has announced--and GE will soon announce--improvements that could cut the 777-300ER's fuel by as much as 4% compared to now, thanks to aerodynamic improvements and engine improvements to the GE90-115B engine. That could push the range of the 777-300ER to around 8,000 nautical miles, way more than enough for United's transpacific routes from SFO and LAX.

Boeing 777-300ER seemed to be really the best seller in Boeing 777 family. Because it allow airlines to dispose their Boeing 747-400 while still making satisfactory profit and reaching the distance further than 744. Or allowing airlines who can't afford to buy Boeing 747 to have airplane than can do the role similar to Boeing 747, but cheaper to purchase.

Even United Airlines who have long resisted the purchase of Boeing 777-300ER eventually decided to buy some:

Indeed. And what will happen to its B772 and B772ER fleet it has, especially when those will be rehabbed at some point for domestic flights? I mean, it has a huge fleet of B772s (with a variety of seating configs too) that, when complemented with the B77Ws, will mean fleet simplification... and by the way, the B77W can carry a similar load of seats as the B744.

It will be interesting to see if United will introduce 10 abreast seating on their 777-300ERs. They haven't done it on their 777-200ERs, and as the 777-300ERs are not going to be a 747 replacement they might stick with 9 abreast.

My personal opinion is that the 77W order is a stopgap as United has the A350-1000 on order as well, they previously indicated that the A35J is the plane that will eventually replace the 744s, but, as the 747 has become a Hangar Queen at UA, they needed to get a replacement faster than the A35J's EIS, so they got the 777-300ER which is a perfect fit. When the A350-1000 arrives, the rest of the 747 fleet will be retired. There was speculation that when the 777 arrives, the remaining 747s will be based at SFO only, as the maintenance facility for the 747s is located there.
They must have gotten a killer deal on that order as ten planes is a small subfleet, but I also think that as UA already operates the 777, they must not have any trouble with having a small fleet of them.

That is very nice, they could use that for all their fleet but surely is very expensive.

This was a photoshop image honoring the Dutch Royal family. No plans to paint a 777 with this livery.

Boeing booked a new unidentified order for 3 777s last week.

http://www.boeing.com/commercial/#/orders-deliveries


Next week with the monthly update we should know what type it is.


If it's a new 777 "classic" order it will bring this years order total to 20 for the 777-300ER & 777F. At 1/3 of the year it's right on target to get 60 orders this year, which is needed to keep the production going at the current rate into 2018. Last year Boeing booked 63 new orders for the classic 777 models, and delivered 99. Boeing now has about 300 outstanding orders, that's 3 years of production well into 2018. Although there are already free slots in the next couple of years as the current backlog also includes enough delivery slots beyond 2018.
