With a 5/24 start date, that jives with the 744 fleet retirement schedule posted in reply #298. Assuming we'll largely see the 77W fleet taking over 744 routes from this poin...

The 78J (aka -10) is far bigger than a 763 so I don't see those as a replacement. Big airlines like to have aircraft set up at seating points so up or down gauging won't have a wild swing in seat availability. The MoM concept sounds good but it's unlikely to ready before the first batch of 763s nee...
