Etihad Airways to stop operating Boeing 777-300ER jets this year
DUBAI (Reuters) - Etihad Airways Chief Executive Tony Douglas said on Thursday the Abu Dhabi state carrier would no longer operate Boeing 777-300ER aircraft after this year.
"You will see of us a very focused, a very disciplined operating model which is heavily built around the fleet type of (Boeing) 787 Dreamliners and (Airbus) A350-1000s," he told the online World Aviation Festival.
Etihad had 19 Boeing 777s in its fleet as of December, its website showed.
