Registrations for the “A” market models were in the G-ZZZx series (looks like 777).
Three “A” market 777s remain at Heathrow serving Middle East and East Coast USA routes.
Two of the B777-200 aircraft, G-ZZZD and G-ZZZE, left the fleet in 2002 during the
economic downturn. This short lived variant had little re-sale value and despite
tenures with Khalifa and Varig G-ZZZE became the first 777 to be broken up for parts
after only eight years in service.
The three remaining B777-200 aircraft have been refitted with the 2010 New First
cabin and the 2010 World Traveller Plus and World Traveller cabins and the latest
Thales IFE system.
The limited range of the B777-200 means the aircraft are utilised on Middle East
and East Coast US flights.
