demand sized, shaped and launched the newest
member of the Boeing twin-aisle family -- the
777. The airplane design offers features, innovations
and approaches to airplane development that
set the standard for delivering value to airlines.
Boeing 777 is the first jetliner to be 100 percent
digitally designed using three-dimensional computer
graphics. Throughout the design process, the
airplane was "pre-assembled" on the
computer, eliminating the need for a costly,
airplane is larger than all other twinjet or
trijet airplanes and smaller than the 747. It
brings the twin-engine economic advantage to
medium- and long-range markets.
777 currently is available in five models: 777-200,
777-200ER (extended range), 777-200LR (longer-range),
777-300 and the 777-300ER.
777 program was launched in October 1990 with
an order from United Airlines. In June 1995,
United flew its first 777 in revenue service.
Boeing 777 family of airplanes are the most
technologically advanced airplanes in the world.
The 777s seat from 301 up to 368 passengers

of 5,210 nautical miles (9,649 km) in the 777-200
to 8,865 nautical miles (16,417 km) for the
777-200LR (longer range).
777 -- the world's largest twinjet -- is available
in five models: the 777-200, a 777-200ER (extended
range), a larger 777-300 as well as two new
longer-range models, the 777-200LR and the 777-300ER,
