It’s been a couple of weeks since we last posted updated modification information.
Some of our smaller mods that wouldn’t necessarily get headlines include 12 of 14 76C Crew Rest Enhancements complete. This includes removing aft underbin galleys forward of the Door 4 lavs and increasing the crew seat pitch for added leg room.
Additionally, the 75E production run for the Large Lav Tank and Y/C headrests have begun. 5 Aircraft are completed and 2 are in work. The Sat Coms (satellite communications) for these aircraft begin on May 1st.
Much activity on the 777 side of the house with the acquisition of Delta’s 7th 777LR, Ship 7107, scheduled to fly back tomorrow. Additionally, Delta completed the 1st of (2) 777LR +2 B.C mods on ship 7102. The aircraft now has a full complement of 45 J seats. Ship 7101 is scheduled to receive this mod in late May.
In the world of winglets, Ship 1612 is scheduled to deliver early next week which will be our 4th 767 with winglets. On the narrow body side of the house, we are inducting our 41st 738 aircraft for winglets. This line is producing a newly wingleted aircraft (combined with a routine mtc event) in just under 12 days.
Everyone is wonder what is going on with Ship 1804? After a couple of delays, we’ve finally buttoned her up and inducted her into paint. The paperwork is filed with the FAA and we are anxiously awaiting the final approval.
