Model: Boeing 777 series
777 Family Overview
The company's newest airplane type is the 777, designed to fill the size gap between the 767 and 747. The market-driven 777-200 twinjet seats from 305 to 320 passengers in three classes. The initial 777-200, which was first delivered in May 1995, has a range of up to 5,850 miles.
The increased-gross-weight, longer-range 777-200 was first delivered in February 1997. This model is capable of flying the same number of passengers up to 8,860 miles.
Boeing also developed a stretched version of the 777, providing three-class seating for 368 to 386 passengers on routes up to 6,720 miles. This high-capacity 777-300 enters service with launch customers Cathay Pacific Airways of Hong Kong.
Boeing is studying a derivative of the 777-200 that could fly nearly 10,000 miles, as well as a longer-range derivative of the 777-300.
