You'd be surprised how much of a difference can be made. BA sent a 777-200ER over 17,000km, 4,000km more than published, and that was with some passengers onboard.

Looking at charts the early 772s should be good for a little over 13,000km.

I think, the "de-rating" is a paper one, with lower MTO/MLW, to pay lower airport fees and has nothing to do with the engines. Also, the non-ER versions probably do have less fuel cells, which does limit the range some 20%. Totally empty, flying at FL430, fuel can be to the max, the range will be enormously extended. Without passengers, without freight, without interior, the plain can easily be 50-60 tons lighter and there you have your range. CX not even has to change the paperwork, to load the fuel to the brim for the needed range.

B-KQD left HKG and landed at XMN this morning. Looks like another aircraft being charged to 77K.

Are you sure that HNO is in 42/396 configuration?

A report said it will be scrapped in LDE.

B-KPJ has returned HKG yesterday. The aircraft has updated the IFE system on the plane to the latest version of StudioCX. It might have been re-configured into 77A.
