Well, PIAs new 777-200LRs are going to be the first to come out, meaning that Pakistan International will be the launch customer for this particular type of aircraft. Should be cool .

Boeing rolls out long-haul jumbo airliner

LONDON: A month after Europe unveiled the world's biggest airliner, America on Tuesday came up with one that could fly the farthest.

The roll-out in Seattle of the Boeing 777-200LR (for “long range”) was portrayed as the joining of a mighty aerospace battle, pitting size against staying power, with the ultimate spoils being billions in orders from the world's airlines.

While many industry insiders dismiss such a notion, describing the new Boeing as merely a “niche plane” aimed at a limited market, the spectacle of two new and so different airliners appearing hard on each other's heels has inevitably led to questions over the way passengers in the future would most like to travel.

On one hand, there is the Airbus behemoth, the A380 with its twin decks, 79.5m wingspan and, theoretically, the ability to seat 740 economy passengers, even though, in reality, it will “only” accommodate between 500-550 in three classes when it enters service next year.

It might not be the fastest aircraft in the world or have the longest range (but still a respectable 8,000 nautical miles or 14,816km) but it will still get you from northern Europe to Australia with only a stop or two.

The first 777-200LR is to be delivered to Pakistan International Airlines next January.

And, if Sir Richard Branson's dreams are realised, you will be able to wile away the time in the bar, gym or casino. – The Daily Telegraph

Non-stop from London aboard the new Boeing
By Foreign Editor MILES KEMP
17 February 2005
The Advertiser

BOEING has launched the first passenger jet capable of linking Sydney and Adelaide to London as a non-stop commercial route.

The Boeing 777-200LR has created aviation history, being the first commercial jet capable of flying non-stop halfway around the globe - therefore linking any two cities on Earth without refuelling.

The aircraft is a long-range version of the company's existing 777 and is capable of carrying 301 passengers. With three additional fuel tanks, it can fly more than 15,000km.

Atmospheric wind conditions mean the plane could fly non-stop from London to Australia - but it would need to refuel if flying from Australia to London. Launched in Seattle yesterday, the two-engine aircraft will begin flying next month.

In order for it to fly into Adelaide or Sydney, several conditions would need to be met.

Boeing Australia spokesman Ken Moreton said for non-stop flights from London or the United States, Adelaide would need to have the necessary volume of customers and the Federal Government would have to amend air traffic rights.

Qantas and British Airways currently have traffic rights from London to Sydney and could use the 777-200LR from 2006.

Adelaide Airport spokesman John McArdle said the facility could accommodate the aircraft and would welcome it in the future.

PIA’s second Boeing 777 aircraft arrives
Saturday, February 19, 2005

KARACHI: The Pakistan International Airlines’ (PIA) second new Boeing-777 landed at the Quaid-e-Azam International Airport, early Sunday morning.

The plane took off from Seattle in the United States and landed at Islamabad International Airport after a 14-hour non-stop flight at 11.50pm on Saturday. After a brief stopover it flew to Karachi.

PIA officials welcomed the crew and other members who arrived on Boeing 777-ER, the most technologically advanced airplane in the world. The plane has a seating capacity of 327 with accommodation of 33 passengers in the first class. In 2002, PIA ordered eight Boeing 777 airplanes. These included three extended range Boeing 777-200-ER, two Boeing 777-200-LR and three Boeing 777-300-ER.

The next delivery is expected in March 2004. All the planes will be received by year 2008. PIA is confident that the induction of these airplanes will boost Pakistan’s economy. The airplane induction programme is financed by the United States Exim Bank. This is the largest deal in the history of PIA. A PIA spokesman said that the planes have been acquired on the basis of an elaborate marketing plan. He said these aircraft would help provide direct destination flights to passengers. The expansion of PIA’s future network was also considered before acquiring these aircraft. While selecting these aircraft, operational cost, fuel efficiency, comfort of passengers and low maintenance costs were considered.

More than 460 B777s are currently in service with 36 airlines around the world. So far more than 630 777s have been ordered. The national flag carrier plans to use 777-200ER aircraft for US destinations and possibly for India. —APP

Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner Completes Taxi Test; Nears First Flight
03.04.05, 7:54 PM ET

EVERETT, Wash., March 4 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) pilots taxied the new 777-200LR Worldliner for the first time today, one of the final steps before the world's longest range commercial airplane makes its first flight.

Boeing's newest 777, capable of connecting virtually any two cities in the world, is scheduled to make its inaugural flight on Tuesday, March 8, from Paine Field in Everett, Wash., depending on weather and other variables.

Capt. Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann, 777-200LR project pilot, and Capt. Frank Santoni, chief 777 program pilot, completed the taxi test, one of many being conducted as the airplane prepares for first flight. The test provides data about the airplane's braking performance and handling characteristics on the ground. It also ensures all the systems perform as designed while the airplane is in motion, providing the flight crew's final validation before first flight.

The pilots during today's test conducted taxi runs at speeds of up to 70 knots, or approximately 80 miles per hour (130 kilometers per hour). The airplane's gross weight for this test was 425,000 pounds (192,777 kilograms).

Boeing 777-200LR begins Test Flights
8 March 2005


The first Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner today completed its first flight and began a test program that will lead to its first delivery in January 2006.

Capts. Suzanna Darcy-Hennemann and Frank Santoni flew the airplane, which carries the distinctive new blue Boeing livery. Darcy-Hennemann is the 777-200LR project pilot and Santoni is the chief 777 program pilot for Boeing Commercial Airplanes.

"The 777-200LR's ability to connect the world is amazing," Darcy-Hennemann said. "Flying the first flight is an honor and a rare opportunity."

The 777-200LR, capable of connecting virtually any two cities in the world nonstop, is the fifth 777 model. It can carry 301 passengers up to 9,420 nautical miles (17,445 kilometers).

During today's flight, Darcy-Hennemann and Santoni took the airplane to an altitude of 15,000 feet (4,572 meters) and an air speed of 270 knots, or about 310 miles (500 kilometers) per hour, customary on a first flight. Typically, the 777's cruise altitude is 35,000 feet (10,668 meters), and its cruise speed is Mach 0.84, about 484 miles (779 kilometers) per hour.

Darcy-Hennemann and Santoni tested some of the airplane's systems and structures, as on-board equipment recorded and transmitted real-time data to a flight-test team at Boeing Field.

The flight-test program will involve the airplane flown today and a second one that's being built. Those will prove the airplane's safety, reliability and service-ready condition during 500 flight hours and 300 ground test hours.

Certification by the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and Europe's Joint Aviation Authority is expected during the fourth quarter. The first 777-200LR Worldliner is to be delivered to Pakistan International Airlines. EVA Airways is also a launch customer.

This is cool but I love having stopovers and changing multiple planes. You get to stretch your legs, walk around an area bigger than the cabin and you get to enjoy more take-offs and landings.

^That's the other side of the story.

Take for example a 18 hours flight(ultra long haul, like Singapore-NYC). I love the idea of a plane being able to fly all that without a stop, but if i was a passenger, i would probably think twice about doing it nonstop or with a stop in between. In that I understand FM 2258 point of view.
