Recommended Posts

British Airways orders up to 42 777-9s

 

28 FEBRUARY, 2019

 

Eighteen aircraft are firm orders, complemented by another 24 as options. The twinjets will be fitted with 325 seats in a four-class configuration.

 

BA parent IAG has disclosed the decision.

It says the 777-9s will be used to replace 14 Boeing 747-400s as well as four 777-200s over the course of 2022-25.

All the 777-9s will be powered by General Electric GE9X engines, and the agreement includes a “comprehensive” support package, says IAG.

IAG chief executive Willie Walsh says the 777-9 is the “ideal replacement” for the 747.

Boeing Signs Deal for Up to 42 777X Airplanes with International Airlines Group
IAG's British Airways picks the 777X to modernize a major part of its long-haul fleet
777X builds on 777 and 787 Dreamliner technology; will be world's largest, most efficient twin-aisle jet

LONDON, Feb. 28, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and International Airlines Group, the parent company of British Airways, announced the airline has committed to purchasing up to 42 777X airplanes, including 18 orders and 24 options. The airline joins a group of leading carriers that have selected the new 777-9, which will debut next month as the largest and most efficient twin-engine passenger jet in the world.

The commitment, valued at up to $18.6 billion at list prices, will be reflected on Boeing's Orders and Deliveries website once it is finalized.

"The new 777-9 is the world's most fuel efficient longhaul aircraft and will bring many benefits to British Airways' fleet. It's the ideal replacement for the 747 and its size and range will be an excellent fit for the airline's existing network," said Willie Walsh, IAG chief executive. "This aircraft will provide further cost efficiencies and environmental benefits with fuel cost per seat improvements of 30 per cent compared to the 747. It also provides an enhanced passenger experience."

British Airways has been modernizing its fleet – one of the largest in the airline industry – to more efficiently serve its extensive global route network. In recent years, the airline has introduced the super-efficient 787 Dreamliner family to replace its medium-sized widebody jets. The new 777-9 will replace British Airways' larger widebody airplanes, mainly the four-engine 747 jumbo jet.

In ordering the 777-9, British Airways extends a long-running relationship with the popular 777 family. The airline is one of the largest 777 operators with a fleet of nearly 60 of the long-range jet. The airline last year committed to four more 777-300ER (Extended Range) jets via operating lease.

The 777-9 is larger and has a slightly wider cabin than current 777s, which provides the ability to comfortably sit 400-425 passengers in a standard two-class cabin. Powered by 787 Dreamliner technologies, an all-new composite wing, and other enhancements, the 777-9 offers airlines 12 percent lower fuel consumption than competing airplanes. The 777-9 can also fly farther than its predecessors with a standard range of 7,600 nautical miles (14,075 kilometers).

The 777X will also debut a redesigned cabin that incorporates popular 787 features and new technologies. Recently unveiled online, the 777X interior offers larger windows, a wider cabin, new lighting, while providing passengers with a smoother ride, better cabin altitude, humidity, and sound quality.

"British Airways is one of the most iconic international carriers, now in its 100th year of connecting the world with its impressive route network. We are honored that British Airways has selected the 777X as part of its fleet for its next century. Together with the 787 Dreamliner, we are excited for the 777X to help British Airways build on its incredible legacy," said Kevin McAllister, president & CEO of Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 777-9, in particular, simply has no competitor in its class when it comes to efficiency and performance. It is the right-sized airplane for British Airways to efficiently serve long-range routes with heavy passenger demand."

The selection by IAG and British Airways puts the 777X at 358 orders and commitments from eight customers. Production of the 777X began in 2017, with first flight planned for this year and first delivery expected in 2020.

BA teve um desconto irrecusável pra deixar o orgulho nacional de lado e comprar motores GE.

Agora entendi por que a BA fugiu a tradicional escolha por motores Rolls Royce.

 

Mas o 777X vai ter opção de motores RR também?

O 77W também só com GE. Talvez por isso a BA só tenha 12, e agora vai receber +4. Já o 46 200s são com Trent 800.
