Boeing 777

(1/2) > >>

I know this is a rather dumb question, but I read that the Boeing 777-200 or 300 series, I forget which one, has one of the longest or the longest range capable by any airliner. I asked my friends, but none could really provide an answer. Just wondering if anyone knew the facts on the 777 airliners capabilities, and wether or not what I read was true or not? I have not had a chance yet to look it up on line because my time online is limited because I share the computer with others. Thanks for putting up with me, and for any information anyone can provide.

The 777-200LR is currently the longest range airliner in existence. The A340-500 is the longest range airliner in service. The 777-200LR was developed to win back the title from Airbus. It has just started flight testing and will be making a couple long range record setting flight in the coming months.

Thanks for the input Goose! :) How long do you think it will be until it goes into service?

Sorry for taking so long to reply. It should be in service within 6 months. I can't remember which airline is the launch customer though.

Looks like Boeing just launched the 777 Freighter. Air France being the launch customer with five aircraft on order to replace its 747-200F fleet. Air Canada followed last month. Delivery scheduled for fourth quarter 2008. The 777-200LR will be the platform for the new variant. According to the same press release, the first 777-200LR Worldliner will enter passenger service in January 2006.
