Jet Airways is disposing of all 10 Boeing 777-300ERs (five of which are already leased out) and Kenya Airways is disposing of three 777-300ERs, according to published reports from the regions.
The Jet aircraft are 2007 and newer; the Kenya aircraft are 2013-2014 aircraft.
Jet Airways, partially owned by Etihad Airways, wants to rid itself of the five 777s already leased to other parties. Kenya Airways can’t fill the -300ERs, according to a person familiar with the situation.
A Boeing spokesman said these late model aircraft coming to market won’t affect the company’s effort to sell new 777s as it works to fill the production gap between the Classic and the 777X.
On a recent earnings call, CEO Jim McNerney said the slots are essentially sold out in 2016, half sold out in 2017 and some 2018 slots have been sold. Through May 5, Boeing sold 25 777s this year, including 10 to United Airlines in a swap freeing up 10 Boeing 787-9s.
