      Hm. You don't know if B744 winglets fit on a B763F? One or two should be on the market... >>
      ex-airline: Transaero

      And, a rather sad story, where does Kalitta take their 763 from? These are not converted QF-B763ER?
      [Which, by the way, would be a shame, after there exists 1 post here at jp by a QF customer about *QF-B738...]
      *not so spacious, I'd say. I have this customer in mind. He wasn't that neutral with his words. I still know what I answered:
      PER - SIN - PER is rather a B744 mission.

      After all those years, I really wonder why there is not 1 B763ER nickname here.
      Whereas I know at least 2 jp members who are seriously interested in the 747 (1 besides me...).

      In Germany and beyond the Atlantic Ocean, it is still a popular type, also as B763ER (passenger version)!
      There is a German saying: Nobody does it if you don't personally care about it...
      "Alles muss man hier alleine machen."

      A second type - just due to personal interest - is never wrong (besides my nickname), and the 763 deserves it...
      Hawaiian Airlines, my 1st example.
      UA, my 2nd.

      So, theoretically you are not without a job if "your" type is no longer flown by "your" airline. Intercontinental airlines like QF provide solutions for former 763ER pilots, don't they?
