Boeing, SWISS Finalize Order for Three Additional 777-300ERs

ZURICH, May 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA], the Lufthansa Group and Swiss International Air Lines (SWISS) have finalized an order for three additional 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes, valued at $990 million at current list prices. This order, previously attributed to an unidentified customer, follows SWISS' 2013 order for six 777-300ERs, and will form the backbone of the Swiss flag-carrier's long-haul fleet renewal.

This one was already announced some months ago, but only firmed up last week and now identified.

In that case, the days of its A340-300s are numbered... and by the way, since Swiss ordered a lot of B77Ws (with Lufthansa), will the German carrier be interested in operating that aircraft under any circumstances (given that it operates a lot of Boeing aircraft, especially the 747-8)?

Since many of the remaining 747-400 are not extremely old (as per european/american standards) as they were delivered around 2000 and with the current fuel price, they can wait for the 777-9X before being retired. If the oil price surges again then the probability of LH getting the 777-300ER is higher. I guess LH might be interested in ordering more 777-9s than getting 777-300ER pre-2020 for the sake of fleet simplification.

The 777-300ER has sold very well for one reason: it proved to be the perfect replacement for the 747-400 on routes over 5,000 nautical miles in range. That's why many 747-400's are now being rapidly retired; United Airlines bought ten 777-300ER's so they could retire the oldest 747-400's in their fleet before the arrival of the A350XWB-1000's some time in 2018.

Not only. Airbus did not have anything that could compete with 777(300) - A330 is much smaller and A340's cabin is too narrow, making the 4 engines produce terrible fuel burn per seat. So 777-300 had pretty much free rein in the 300+ seat market

Lufthansa ordered the 777x and they are going to be delivered starting around 2020. Maybe LH will use some of the 777Ws as training flights plus Lufthansa Cargo operates the 777F. Swiss only has 9 777s on order with deliveries starting next year.

Now I remember, back in 1990s until early 2000s Airbus A340 was pitted against Boeing 777 family. But since Boeing 777 (especially -300ER which came out in 2003) can proved itself to be more economic than A340, more airlines dispose their A340 in favor of Boeing 777.
Although no Boeing 777-200LR ever proved their mark when compared to Airbus A340-500 in general Boeing 777 are more successful than A340.

Boeing booked another new order for the 777-300ER last week.

An unidentified customer bought 5 of them.

Maybe its United placing another order for more 777ws because they need to replace the 747s at a faster rate?

Probably... maybe not.

And by the way, has the Emirates buying "binge" on the B77W tapered off yet? I mean, I remember that it made gargantuan orders of the A380 and B77W, yet it seems that it has not ordered quite a lot of aircraft lately...

OMNI FLYERS - the aviation journal

BOEING 777-300ER TO BE THE NEW 'AIR INDIA ONE' FOR PRESIDENT AND PRIME MINISTER's LONG HAUL TRAVEL

PM Narendra Modi will now get a plush, highly-secure, office high in the sky. Fitted with advanced self-protection suites to jam and beat hostile incoming missiles and encrypted satellite communication facilities, the new 'Desi Air Force One' is set to be cleared soon.

Sources on Monday said the defence acquisitions council, chaired by minister Manohar Parrikar, will take up acquisition of two Boeing 777-300 (extended range) aircraft for exclusive use by President Pranab Mukherjee and Modi for extra long-haul overseas flights.

The two 777-300 (ER) aircraft will be "bought" from Air India, which has a dozen such relatively new wide-bodied planes, and then specially configured for VVIP travel and retrofitted with the sophisticated self-protection suites by Boeing.

They will replace the ageing Boeing 747 'Jumbo Jets' used for VVIP duties under 'Air India One' call sign after pulling them out from commercial duties as and when required. "These old aircraft do not have anti-missile defence systems, which the SPG holds is necessary. The decision was taken after a committee of secretaries from top ministries and aviation experts examined the matter," said a source.

It also gained urgency after Malaysia Airlines flight MH17 was shot down over Ukraine last year, just around the time Modi's 747-400 aircraft was using a nearby air corridor to return to New Delhi from Frankfurt. Last month, India was also forced to dispatch a stand-by aircraft to Berlin after the 747-400 being used by Modi developed engine problems during his three-nation tour.

The two modified 777-300 (ER) aircraft will be based with the Air HQ Communication Squadron at Palam, which is tasked with ferrying the President, PM and other VVIPs in and around the country. Though Air India may still collaborate with IAF in terms of pilots, engineers and cabin crew, the call sign of the PM's new 777-300 (ER) ride could well be 'Air Force One' like the US President's iconic 'flying Oval Office'.

The 777-300s will have robust defence systems including 'radar warning receivers', which basically sound an alert if a hostile radar 'paints' the aircraft before letting loose missiles, and 'missile-approach warning systems'. Advanced electronic counter-measures on board the aircraft will be able to jam enemy radars, along with defence systems geared to shoot metal chaff or flares to throw off-track radar-guided or heat-seeking missiles.

Incidentally, the IAF Communication Squadron has three Boeing Business Jets, with similar defence systems, which were inducted for VVIP travel in 2009 under a Rs 937 crore deal. But these 'mini Air Force Ones' have a limited range of 3,000 nautical miles. The CAG had slammed the deal since the aircraft cannot fly VVIPs non-stop to international locations like London due to their limited range Source : https://www.facebook.com/planespottersindia?fref=ts.
