They will return the leased ones. Next one should be 16703.

Oceania as regional? I think Oceania pax will be pissed

What about cabin refreshes for RL to match the new 77Bs? They were really playing up the "new look" last month.

The original announcement said that the 787 deliveries would start in 2017 and run through 2022 (presumably Boeing delays have pushed this back a year or so). This timeline would coincide with ~12 777-300 and 3 A330-200 frames hitting the 12-15 year mark, which is when BR seems to retire wide-body frames. So about half of the 26 deliveries could be normal fleet refresh.

They need sufficient 787 aircraft(with ETOPS and enough crew training hours) before they can retire the A332. Currently, A332 is the only plane that can make it to BNE(777 is not economical).

CI has remove CI15/16 from schedule and revert CI3/4 back to 777. A net loss of around 600 seats to SFO.

Wondering how BR 7/8 load factor is. Perhaps we may see three daily to SFO once 787-9 is delivered. 1x787-9 and 2x 77W could work well. Perhaps may be sending 787-9 to SJC would be good.

I think b-16703 lease is extended to 2024 so EVA might maintain 34 777-300ER for a while.. a330-200 could be gone if they find ways to get rid of them since they own it.

EVA is too premium and "expensive" for those routes. Best to leave it to the carriers who specialize in low end price sensitive markets.

Are their last A330-200s sticking around for a while? Thought they were on the way out but my TPE-CGK flight in September just swapped from a -300 to an ancient -200.

Yes. It's the only aircraft that is able to operate the BNE route(specially designed last two center rows of Economy for crew rest). They only have 3(I think?) left. They'll be gone when 787s come in.

I'm also wondering when will EVA (or China airlines) get to add more PVG/SHA flights... They are adding more flights to China, but just not being able to add any shanghai ones.

Yes they have 3, and I knew the BNE route was the primary factor. CGK just seems like an ugly stepchild route where they'll throw on whatever is available.

PVG/SHA faces two problems... overall China frequency allocated to each airline, and local airport slot restrictions. I don't think this will change for a while.

BR increases TSA-HGH(2 to 4 weekly), TSA-TSN(1 to 2 weekly), and TPE-NKG(2 to 4 weekly) in S18.
