That’s right Scooter - Nobody expects airline management to consult with manufacturers with regard to aircraft types. The 777-300ER entered into service with Air France two years after the A330 arrived at Qantas. Who would have thought that Boeing would keep the development of this aircraft a secret from these geniuses praying for low fuel prices, and a miracle in the Qantas boardroom.

At this point the 777 had been flying for six years at various long haul airlines. Boeing offered the 300ER two years before the A330 arrived at Qantas, and it was flying in service two years after Qantas received its ‘game changing’ A330.
