Boeing 777-200

Boeing 777-200 by Captain Sim for FSX

The Boeing 777-200 is a long range, twin aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Boeing, the American aerospace company. We operate these aircraft on longhaul routes to North and South America, the Caribbean, Africa, Australasia, the Far East, Middle East and Gulf destinations.

Often referred to as the "Triple Seven", it was the world’s first commercial aircraft entirely designed by computer. Its visible features include super large engines, low hanging landing gear and a blade shaped tail cone with a relatively narrow tailfin.

British Airways took part in the design of the aircraft with Boeing, and is today one of the world’s largest operators of the type. The Boeing 777 has emerged as a best seller for longhaul commercial aircraft thanks to its excellent fuel efficiency and cabin comfort.

The 777-200 was the initial A-market model. The first -200 was delivered to United Airlines on May 15, 1995. With a maximum range of 5,240 nautical miles (9,700 km), the -200 was chiefly aimed at U.S. domestic airline operators. Nine different -200 customers have taken delivery of 88 aircraft, with 73 in airline service as of July 2016. The competing aircraft from Airbus is the A330-300.

777-200ER
The 777-200ER ("ER" for Extended Range), the B-market version of the -200, was originally known as the 777-200IGW (increased gross weight). The -200ER has additional fuel capacity and an increased maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) over the -200. Aimed at international airlines operating transatlantic routes, the -200ER's maximum range is 7,730 nautical miles (14,320 km). In addition to breaking the eastbound great circle "distance without landing" record, the -200ER also holds the record for the longest ETOPS-related emergency flight diversion (177 minutes under one engine), on a United Airlines flight carrying 255 passengers on March 17, 2003, over the Pacific Ocean.The first -200ER was delivered to British Airways on February 6, 1997.A British Airways 777-200ER flew the fastest subsonic New York to London flight at 5 hours and 16 minutes in January 2015 due to strong tail winds. Singapore Airlines, one of the variant's largest customers, ordered over half of its -200ERs with reduced engine thrust specifications (de-rated) for use on medium-length routes. The de-rated engines lower the MTOW, which reduces the aircraft's purchase price and landing fees; these aircraft can be re-rated to full -200ER standard for long-haul operations. As of September 2016, -200ER deliveries to 33 different customers totaled 422 with no unfilled orders. As of July 2016, 363 examples of the -200ER were in airline service. The competing aircraft from Airbus are the A340-300 and the A350-900, while Boeing's own 787-9 is positioned as a successor.

The 777-200LR ("LR" for Longer Range), the C-market model, became the world's longest-range commercial airliner upon entering service in 2006. Boeing named it Worldliner as it could connect almost any two airports in the world, although it is subject to ETOPS restrictions. It holds the world record for the longest nonstop flight by a commercial airliner, having a maximum range of 9,500 nautical miles (17,600 km). The -200LR was intended for ultra-long-haul routes such as Los Angeles to Singapore.Developed alongside the -300ER, the -200LR features an increased MTOW and three optional auxiliary fuel tanks in the rear cargo hold. Other new features include raked wingtips, redesigned main landing gear, and additional structural strengthening.

As with the -300ER and 777F, the -200LR is equipped with wingtip extensions of 12.8 ft (3.90 m). The -200LR is powered by GE90-110B1 or GE90-115B turbofans. The first -200LR was delivered to Pakistan International Airlines on February 26, 2006. As of September 2016, eleven different -200LR customers have taken delivery of 59 aircraft, with no unfilled orders. Airlines operated 55 of the -200LR variant as of July 2016. The closest competing aircraft from Airbus was the A340-500HGW.
