Austrian Airlines took contractual delivery in Seattle yesterday of its newest Boeing [NYSE: BA] 777-200ER jetliner. The delivery is the latest step in Austrian Airlines' initiative to simplify its fleet and reduce costs associated with the operation of its long-haul fleet. In the future Austrian Airlines will operate a highly efficient all-Boeing long-haul fleet of 777s and 767s. The carrier will operate the new 777 on its New Delhi route initially. The airplane arrived today at Vienna International Airport. The Boeing 777's fuel efficiency, superior economics and award-winning cabin interior have made it the airplane of choice for airlines around the world.
