March 30, 2012 Air China to end 767 service
Air China announced that on March 31, 2012 they will retire the 767. The most direct replacement for the 767 is the 787 or A330. I have not heard that Air China ordered the 787. I think they are A330 customers. This seems to mark the beginning of the end 767 passenger service around the globe. It is an aging airframe, and with the exception of the 767-400’s (UA and DL are the sole operators of the type) so more airlines will be moving the frames out of service.
