I would like to know which Boeing 777 is the first to be withdrawn from service? (not written off in an accident)

May be some 777-200 (not ER)

This former Singapore Airlines Boeing 777-200ER is already dismantled.



I believe there are some earlier models who have already met its fate too.

The 1st one that was scrapped was a 777-200 that was used by Varig until the airline became defunct in 2006. The plane was scrapped in 2008 and was the 1st of 3 777s that have been scraped. Together with the 3 that were written-off that makes it 6 777s that are now gone.

With so few 777s that have been scrapped the 2nd hand market for part is actually very expensive. Don't be surprised to see more (young) 777s scrapped in the next couple of years, just because there's lot's of money to be made from all the parts. You can see that in the picture above, that's a clean strip and not a one way ticket to the metal grinder.

May I know their registrations?

As far as I know, the very first Boeing 777 produced (that is the prototype) is still flying with Cathay Pacific as B-HNL (in fact I did saw the plane this morning, flying over my office in Surabaya )

Aeroflot seems to be happy with their new 777s.

Aeroflot to lease six B777-300(ER)s from GECAS

Aeroflot (SU, Moscow Sheremetyevo) will lease six B777-300(ER)s from GE Capital Aviation Services (GECAS) during the course of 2014. Russian aviation portal ATO says the deal will be voted on by the carrier's shareholders during their AGM on January 21, 2014
http://www.ch-aviation.ch/portal/new...ers-from-gecas

They already got 16 directly on order from Boeing, when approved this will bring their total to 22.


It will also mean that GECAS will have leased out all of their outstanding orders, 14 in total. China Airlines and EVA will both get 4, starting deliveries in 2014 and then Aeroflot the remaining 6. We might see GECAS placing another top-up order next year, the demand stays high for the 777-300ERs.

The B777 certainly earned the most successful Boeing aircraft title.

The 777 did pass the 747 in total order this month.


These where the numbers of firm orders of all the 7*7 models through November 2013:

737: 11,279
727: 1,831
747: 1,530
777: 1,519
767: 1,108
757: 1,049
787: 1,012
707: 1,010 (including the 720, excluding the KC-135)
717: 155
(Red = terminated programs)

The Cathay order brought the total of the 777 to 1,540. When the Emirates and the Qatar orders are firmed up the total will come close to the 727. I won't be surprised if it becomes Boeings 2nd best selling plane next year.

It's definitely Boeing most successful twin-aisle plane.

Not counting the 717 (which was MD), Boeing has sold 1000+ of every single 7x7 series. Basically they haven't had a failed jet. Of course if you look at variants, then they've had a few. Going forward though, no manufacturer will have a failed product, we're past that era.

I think the next thing to look for is which one will cross 2000 first - 787 or the mighty 777?

Never say never. Both manufactures have faced stiff competition competing with one another. The VLA market is one for example, A380 vs B748i & Airbus managed to turn the program around with the help of EK's vast order of 150 frames. As for the B748i it was partially a failure even though it wasn't a newly designed aircraft & Boeing didn't need to invest $$$ when compared with Airbus & the A380 program.
The B777 program has been a true success and as for the B787 one of the quickest selling twin aisle aircraft ever.
