Etihad ends 772LR operations

Etihad is to dispose of five Boeing 777-200LR’s following reductions in flights to the US and Brazil.

The airline has over a hundred aircraft on order to be delivered over the next seven years, mostly wide-body jets.

Etihad stopped flying to San Francisco last October, and will end flights to Dallas Fort Worth next month. It continues to fly to Chicago, Los Angeles, New York, and Washington DC using 777-300ER’s and A380s.

The 777-200LRs had also been used on flights to Brazil’s Sao Paulo, which Etihad stopped flying to in 2017.

Etihad sold or stored all seven of its A340’s last year, and on January 24th Etihad said it had stopped using five Airbus A332F cargo aircraft and stored them.
