It's amusing how you seem to know 'everything' about present and future KQ ops!

At least someone is thinking straight at the Head office. I hope they will now change the aircraft to a T7 for the JFK trips . It can easily do the 7,354 Miles non stop trip. CX uses the same aircraft for their 8,072 Miles non stop trip!
They need also to change the Mumbai trips to a 787 badly! The 737's are a nutter on this trip!

I believe the B787 is better suited for JKF, performance-wise out of Nairobi, than the B773...or what do you think?

Over 5000í field elevation, near the equator and flying westbound...I can run the numbers next time in at work. A 772 could do it, a -3 I donít know. VC-10ís were built for this stuff.

The 77W could definitely do it. Although even on a good day the RTOW would be restricted to 10 tonnes below the MTOW ex NBO.

Assuming there isn't alot of cargo in the hold destined for JFK, and mainly just pax and their baggage then the aircraft should be able to take off from Jomo for a direct flight to the U.S.

I have no idea about the numbers on the 788 but i strongly suspect the 77W has better performance and range.
