Singapore Air is, in my mind, has the greatest economy class of the 20 or so airlines I've flown with. With their 9 abreast 777 seating, (as opposed to some like Emirates with 10 accross), and super entertainment system and fabulous service, they're number 1 with me.

Does that statistic on United include all of the ones that they've sold off in their bankruptcy??? I also didn't realise that BA had so many!! 8O

I did a little research into this, apparently according to Boeing, United has take the delivery of 60 777's!! 8O Now, obviously, alot of those have been sold off, but my question is how many. If you can answer this I would like to see a source. And Boeing reports Singapore having taken 57 777's. Why the different numbers?? :?

SIA : And 19 more B777-300ER to come!
(Expansion, no replacement)

After that the decision to replace the A340-500.
Likely by the B777-200LR

This in the years to come.

Since it's my 777th post on this board, I was almost obliged to dedicate it to one of the aircraft I like the most: I named the B777!

Currently, AF operates 25 B777-200ER and 9 B777-300ER. If I'm right, they ordered 20 777-300 with 6 more on option, no mention to the 7 B777-200LR order, who hasn't still officially announced (I'm waiting for the Paris Air Show).

Just imagine a Brussels Airport home based carrier operating 58 triple sevens !
Even a Brussels Airport home based carrier operating ten triple seven would be nice... heck, even with four they'd be the biggest long-haul operator ex BRU... !!!

... but don't think I'm picky : a few more A330's for SNBA would really really make my day, also !

You should know better :
- the A330 is not available in full-freight configuration
- SNBA doesn't see dedicated freight flights as a priority
- potatoes are not an interesting product for air transport, since cheaper and more efficient means of transportation for this product often prevail
but most of all
- there are several destinations for which a direct pax flight ex-bru with the A330 would make commercial sense. The idea of an extra 330 isn't as far-fetched as you make it sound.
