  • BA 777s replacements

    Hello JP'ers.

    I was just wondering the other day, what aircraft down the road in the next 5-8 years will replace BA's 777-200's?

    Perhaps the 787?

    Any thoughts??

    the 747 will always be superior.

    777-200LR, or whatever Boeing calls the 772 at that point.

        They don't. They have orders for the 787s and A380s. They recently got themselves 6 new 77Ws as compensation for delays of the 787.

            I think it's too early to think about 772's replacements? BA still has a large fleet of 747-400 that needs to be replaced. They will be replaced by 777-300ER and A380 over the next 5 years and I don't think BA will even be thinking about replacing the 777-200ERs before then. The retirement of the 744 may even be pushed back to provide more capacity for new long range routes now that BA has get its hands on BMI's LHR slots. The 777s are relatively young (less than 15 years old now). If the 747-400 can serve in BA for 20 years, so can the 772s. BA will probably start ordering planes to replace the 772s when the 744 has retired from the fleet, probably around 2016/2017, with delivery of those replacements starting in 2020.

            Going with this logic, by 2017, the A350-900 will be in service and the 787-10 will probably be available as well. Some newer models beyond these two types may already be on the drawing board, so there will be plenty of choices. But my guess at this point is: either A350-900 or 787-10.

              Thats pretty cool and your reply seems to me to be the most accurate and to the point. The 787-10 based on animated photos of it I have seen looks like a beastly plane
              the 747 will always be superior.
