The Boeing 777-300 is without doubt the most graceful airliner flying today. I have spent several days at Heathrow watching airplanes, but I haven`t seen a stretched triple- seven there. I was wondering if anyone knew if the 777- 300 is employed on any Heathrow routes? Anyway, im a 17 year old aviation- enthusiast from Stavanger, Norway, and I really like the Airliner World magazine.

RE: B777- 300 >raggi, the only one I have >seen at LHR is from >Emirates > >Bi In fact, most of the sales of the 777-300 were to airlines in Asia, where the larger passenger capacity of the 777-300 is better appreciated. I know that Japan Air Lines, All-Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, and (I believe) Singapore Airlines are primarily flying the 777-300 on regional routes in eastern Asia from Japan down to Australia. Emirates is the only airline outside of Asia to buy the 777-300, I believe. Now, the 777-200 is quite a bit more popular, because they're being used as replacements for DC-10's and L1011's. In fact, the 777-200's flown by United Airlines, American Airlines, Delta Airlines and Continental Airlines are heavily used for trans-Atlantic routes from various cities in the USA. Only US Airways is flying the Airbus A330 on their routes from Pittsburgh and Philadelpha to Europe.
RE: B777- 300 Hi there, so want to find out about the 777. Thai Airlines sends 777-300 on tuesday and sunday. By the way I am an 14 year old and airlinerworld is also my favourite. I live in India but mostly I am travelling. Kabir Taneja

RE: B777- 300 Hi raggi! Emirates flies a 773 into Heathrow daily, it comes in at 12:30 and leaves at 13:45. I too have spent some time at Heathrow and agree with you: one magnificent airplane, that 777-300! BUT! the airJamaica "Bird of Paradise" 340-300 comes, in my view, a very close second!

Triple sevens Hello Matthew I do agree that the A340 is a very nice aircraft, but in my opinion it`s not even in the same league as the 777. Just the size of the engines on the 777 is good enough reason to find it better-looking. Especially GE90- powered ones. I can`t wait to see the -300ER, which will have the even larger version, the 115B. By the way, I don`t know how much your into civil aviation, but do you know of any airlines that operate GE90 powered 777-300s? All the operators I know have PW4000s or RR Trents.
RE: Triple sevens TO MATTHEW/RAGGI I RECENTLY WENT OUT TO GLASGOW AIRPORT AND I SEEN THE AIRCRAFT YOU BOTH HAVE BEEN LOOKING FOR (777.300) WITH THE GE90. THE AIRLINE WHICH HAS THIS IS BRITANNIA AIRWAYS AND THE AIRCRAFT COMES IN AT 5.00AM IN THE MORNING AND DEPART EITHER AT 10.00AM OR 10.25 AM TO ORLANDO. I HOPE THIS INFORMATION IS GOOD ENOUGH FOR YOU BECAUSE I AM ALSO AN AVIATION ENTHIAST. HAPPY FLYING. ROSS GUNN

RE: Triple sevens HEY, Was it really Britannia? I have my doubts about it.
RE: Triple sevens Britannia operate B767-300 from Glasgow to Orlando, not B777

RE: Triple sevens Sorry Raggi, I must agree with Matthew that the 340 is far superior in range and comfort. I am travelling on a 777 later this month so I may be swayed! Also, I can't wait for the ER to arrive, big engines are agreeably very smart. Bi
