SIA did indeed make a 31-plane order for the B777-300ER just recently....but no dreamliner yet!

And yeah, if it keeps doing this, it wont be long before it replaces the A345 with the B777-200LR too. It just dosent make alot of sense to have only 5 planes from one make when there are over 100 other planes in the B777 family already by then!

Hey, these F/As look a little lonely. Looks like I might have to check out this little "rest area."

Oh, by the way, that GE engine that was producing 127,000 lbs. of thrust is incredible. I believe the A380's four engines will be able to produce 67,000 lbs. of thrust each, for a total of around 280,000 lbs.

Boeing 777 Delivery to ANA Marks Two Milestones for Asia-Pacific Aviation

Boeing and All Nippon Airways (ANA) have marked two milestones, as ANA received its first 777-300ER (Extended Range) and, with that airplane, became the first Asia-based carrier with the Connexion by Boeing SM high-speed mobile Internet service in its fleet. ANA will launch its newest service on November 15 of this year on the airplane's inaugural flight from Tokyo, Japan, to Shanghai, People's Republic of China.

This delivery is the latest highlight of a milestone year for Boeing and ANA. In April the companies launched the all-new Boeing 7E7 with ANA's 50-plane order, the largest launch order for any Boeing jet.

"This new 777-300ER symbolizes a great relationship that spans more than four decades," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes Vice President, Sales-Asia/Pacific Larry Dickenson. "It will expand this important partnership to new horizons."

ANA is a 777-300ER launch customer. As the newest member of the market-leading 777 family, the 777-300ER provides superior efficiency, economics and passenger comfort. ANA's first 777-300ER carries 269 passengers -- eight in first class, 63 in business class, 24 in premium economy class, and 174 in economy class. The airplane can fly up to 7,705 nautical miles (14,270 kilometers) on routes such as New York-Tokyo and Tokyo-London.

"We firmly believe that the 777-300ER will provide our passengers with the best comfort, reliability and safety, on our long range, direct routes," said ANA President and CEO Yoji Ohashi. "The low operating cost, renowned passenger approval, and the revenue capability are among the primary reasons we selected this great airplane."

The airplane delivered is ANA's 26th Boeing 777, and the first of six 777-300ERs the Tokyo-based carrier will receive by the end of 2007. It is also the second 777 ANA received in the past week, following an earlier delivery of a 777-200.

Starting with this airplane, ANA is equipping its long-haul fleet with the Connexion by Boeing SM service.

"ANA is positioning itself as a leader in passenger service by providing the added value that mobile connectivity can bring to the travel experience and to airline operations," said Scott Carson, Connexion by Boeing president. "Real-time, affordable connectivity continues to be one of the most frequently requested passenger amenities in the airline industry and we are proud to help ANA address that need."

Singapore Airlines orders 18 Boeing 777-300ER

Boeing and Singapore Airlines (SIA) have finalized an order for 18 Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) jetliners that makes the airline the world's largest 777 customer and ties the record for the largest order of the 777-300ER.

With this order, valued at $4.1 billion at list prices, SIA has ordered a total of 77 of the twin-engine airplane family models. International Lease Finance Corp. is the only other customer to order 18 Boeing 777-300ERs. This also brings total 777-300ER orders to 104 airplanes.

"We are tremendously pleased that Singapore Airlines, a world-class carrier and a long-time partner, has joined our long-range 777 family," said Larry Dickenson, vice president – Asia Pacific Sales, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 777-300ER will provide superior operating efficiency, an excellent cabin experience for the passenger and commonality with the airline's extensive 777 fleet."

The 777-300ER, powered by General Electric GE90-115B engines, will allow SIA to achieve its growth targets and maintain the airline's fleet as one of the industry's youngest, with an average age of just five years.

"The high-technology avionics and materials, combined with its higher operating efficiency allow the 777-300ER to deliver lower operating costs,” said SIA Chief Executive Officer Chew Choon Seng. “The new airplane will integrate well with our extensive 777 fleet, which has proven very popular among travelers.”

The 777-300ER, seating about 365 passengers and with a range of 7,880 nautical miles, will be deployed on SIA's long-haul and medium-haul routes.

Boeing 777 Delivery to Malaysia Airlines Marks Milestone for Asia-Pacific Aviation

Boeing today delivered the first Malaysia Airlines System (MAS) 777-200ER (Extended Range) airplane incorporating the Class 3 Boeing Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), making the airline the first in the Asia/Pacific region to use the EFB.

Malaysia Airlines is equipping two 777-200ERs with the EFB, which gives pilots a range of information that helps them fly more safely, securely and efficiently.

“These new 777s are a perfect fit for our long-distance routes,” said Dato’ Ahmad Fuaad Mohd Dahlan, managing director for Malaysia Airlines. “And with the EFB, we’re looking forward to even higher levels of efficiency, reliability and excellence.”

The EFB has many applications from Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen: electronic terminal charts; a Performance Tool that helps crews take off and land at maximum efficiency; electronic documents such as fault-reporting, maintenance and minimum equipment lists; a viewer for cabin-surveillance cameras; and the award-winning Taxi Position Awareness tool, which shows pilots exactly where they are at the airport.

Malaysia Airlines’ new 777s will also be the first commercial airplanes delivered with provisions for Terminal Wireless LAN systems. Those systems one day will interface on the ground with airport systems at high speeds and high bandwidth. The EFB and Terminal Wireless LAN systems are important steps toward an e-enabled air transport system.

Along with the EFB, the airline is incorporating a new décor in the award-winning Boeing Signature Interior, which is known for its ambient lighting and accessible luggage bins.

“Boeing and Malaysia Airlines have been setting new standards with the 777s since MAS’ first 777-200 – dubbed the Super Ranger – broke two world records in 1997 for speed and distance as it flew nonstop from Seattle to Kuala Lumpur then back to Seattle commemorating the 50th anniversary of Malaysia Airlines,” said Boeing Commercial Airplanes Senior Vice President, Sales and President of Boeing Aircraft Trading, Dinesh Keskar. “With enhanced efficiency as a result from the introduction of EFB and more comfort for passengers with its new seats, MAS is bound to yet again reiterate its leadership in the region.”

MAS’ new 777-200ER carries up to 289 passengers in two-classes: 42 in business and 247 in economy. It can fly 7,730 nautical miles (14,316 kilometers) on routes such as Zurich-Kuala Lumpur and Kuala Lumpur-Sydney.

The new airplane delivered is the 14th of 15 Boeing 777-200ERs the Kuala Lumpur-based carrier will receive.

MidEast Jet first 777 Operator to Retrofit Boeing’s Electronic Flight Bag

15 December 2004


Saudi-based VIP carrier MidEast Jet is to become the first 777 operator to retrofit that airplane with the Boeing Class 3 Electronic Flight Bag (EFB).

While three 777 operators had EFBs installed during production, MidEast Jet is the first to have the system installed after the airplane was delivered.

"The Boeing EFB delivers technology benefits in a digital format," said David Thomas, MidEast Jet director of operations. "Adding it reduces the amount of charts, manuals and logbooks our pilots are used to carrying."

Boeing Commercial Aviation Services will install the EFB on MidEast Jet's 777-200ER in Germany and then redeliver to MidEast Jet.

The EFB gives MidEast Jet technology advantages for safe, secure and efficient operations. It includes an on-board performance tool that allows the pilot to instantly calculate the ideal speed and engine setting for an aircraft, in any weather condition, on any runway -- or any runway section -- with any payload.

In addition, it includes the award-winning Jeppesen Airport Moving Map application, which combines high-fidelity, geo-referenced airport taxi charts and precise navigational signals to show flight crews exactly where they are on the surface of an airport. It also gives flight crews a viewer for cabin surveillance systems, helping meet new and anticipated regulatory requirements.

KLM orders Two Boeing 777-200ERs

KLM Royal Dutch Airlines is ordering two more Boeing 777-200ER jetliners, increasing its Boeing 777 fleet to 12 airplanes. The airplanes will be delivered during the first quarter of 2006. KLM uses 777-200ERs, which fly up to 14,316 kilometers (7,730 nautical miles) to connect its Amsterdam base to New York, Tokyo, Cape Town and Nairobi among other international destinations.

"The market-leading Triple Seven family is the fastest-selling airplane family in the history of twin aisle airplanes. And we're expanding the family with the 777-200LR -- the longest range jetliner -- and the 777 Freighter", said Marlin Dailey, vice president of sales for Europe, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 777-200ERs versatility allows for exceptional efficiency on routes across the Atlantic as well as to the Far East . With its high-performance wing, efficient engines and lighter structure, the 777 is significantly more fuel-efficient than competing products - about 16 percent better than other airplanes in its class."

KLM's 777s were the first airplanes in the world equipped with the new Boeing Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), which places all the information pilots need to fly the airplane at their fingertips in a digital format.

Regarding the B777-200LR's range, I've seen it stated that it will be able to fly the London-Sydney route nonstop. Right now planes can fly from Western European cities (e.g., London, Amsterdam, Paris, Frankfurt) to any city and continent in the world, because Western Europe just has a very central location, but they can't fly to Australia nontop. With the 777-200LR, they will fill in that gap.

I think all major airlines or airline that want to compete nationally should operates a 777 boeing jet. Cuz the old 747 boeing airplane is just too old, and not comfortable at all. Plus, 747 plane don't has any coll gadget on board, and the plane seat are totally dull . When flying with any airlines, I prefer great foods and newer plane over any other options.

Oh one question, do anybody known how advance is the jumbo jet A380 plane compare to Boeing 777 or A340-600? I known that A380 can carry at least 500 passengers on board, but how much advance is this new plane when comparing to Boeing 777.

Your complaints on the 747 have absolutely nothing to do with the plane, but rather the airline. It's the airline who puts in the seats, gadgets, and of course food.

The A380 should be more advanced simply because it was launched 10 years after the 777, and 15 years after the A340 program-the 777 is more advanced than the 340. Likewise, the 7E7 will be more advanced than the A380.
