You should rather not copy pics from a.net, the guys over there don't like that. You better provide links:

Boeing to Showcase 777-200LR Worldliner, 787 Dreamliner, Rotorcraft and 767 Tanker Transport at Dubai Air Show 2005
14 November 2005


The world’s longest range passenger jet, fresh from setting the world distance record, will fly into the United Arab Emirates to lead Boeing’s comprehensive presence at the Dubai Air Show beginning 20 November.

The 777-200LR, capable of providing direct, non-stop service between cities as far as 17,400 km apart when it enters service in 2006, completed a record flight of 22 hours and 42 minutes on 10 November covering 13,422 statute miles (11,664 nautical miles or 21,601 kilometers).

“The Middle East is very important to Boeing,” said Tod Hullin, Boeing senior vice president, Communications. “That is why we have based a new Boeing president in Saudi Arabia, opened a regional office in Dubai, strengthened community and education partnerships across the region, and made several other key executive appointments in the region.”

Boeing Commercial Airplanes, Integrated Defense Systems, Boeing Capital Corp. and Connexion by Boeing will all participate at this year’s Dubai Air Show.

Boeing’s schedule begins on Saturday, 19 November, with a press conference at 1430 hours for Boeing Commercial Airplanes and Boeing’s Middle East leadership. On the same day, Integrated Defense Systems, with its Saudi Arabian partner Alsalam Aircraft Company, will co-sponsor the Middle East Air Chiefs conference. Boeing Capital Corp. also will host a financiers and investors conference, recognizing Dubai’s leading regional role as a financial center. Similar events have been organized in New York, London and Hong Kong.

Integrated Defense Systems, in partnership with various customers, will showcase the AH-64 Apache, CH-47 Chinook, C-17 Globemaster III, and other platforms. The Boeing exhibit will highlight the 767 Tanker Transport, one of the world’s most capable and advanced tanker aircrafts, already delivered to the Italian Air Force. The Boeing 777-200LR (long range) will make its second flight to the Middle East in five months to participate at the show. Boeing’s valued customer Royal Jet will display a Boeing Business Jet. And the 787 Dreamliner will also be showcased in the Boeing exhibit.

Boeing Close To Singapore Air Deal - Report

December 23, 2005

Boeing may be close to beating European rival Airbus in a deal with Singapore Airlines worth more than USD$10 billion, according to a newspaper report on Friday.

"The indication is (for) an order made up mostly of the 777-200LRs and a significant number of the 787 Dreamliners. A few -- five or six -- of the 747-Advance freighters may also be part of the order," the Wall Street Journal report quoted an unnamed source as saying.

A Boeing spokesman said the company did not comment on negotiations that were ongoing and a Singapore Airlines spokesperson said that the airline had not made a decision yet and that an announcement was not imminent.

"The evaluation of the proposals submitted by Airbus and Boeing is ongoing and has not led to a conclusion or leaning in any direction," the airline said in a statement. "Nor has there been any final determination on the numbers of aircraft by category."

Industry sources have said that Singapore Airlines is considering adding as many as 70 wide-bodied planes to its fleet.

Five of Singapore Airlines' 90 aircraft, excluding cargo and SilkAir, are Airbus planes. The airline has orders for 19 Boeing 777-300ERs, with an option to buy 13 more, and 10 Airbus A380s, with 15 more under option.

Boeing recently won a USD$10 billion order for 65 787 Dreamliner jets from Qantas Airways, with an option to sell the Australian carrier another 50 planes.

Boeing Jet Certified to Carry Passengers
2 February 2006

SEATTLE (AP) - U.S. and European authorities have certified Boeing Co.'s longest-range jetliner to begin flying airline passengers worldwide, the company said Thursday.

The announcement came after the Federal Aviation Administration and the European Aviation Safety Agency formally recognized that the 777-200LR completed testing and met safety requirements during its six-month flight-test program.

The Worldliner, as Boeing calls its latest 777, broke the world record for the longest nonstop flight by a commercial jet in November. It flew 13,422 miles from Hong Kong to London, a flight that took 22 hours and 43 minutes.

The old record was set in 1989, when a Boeing 747-300 flew 10,500 miles from London to Sydney, Australia.

During flight testing, two 777-200LRs completed 886 flight hours on 328 flights, and 318 ground-test hours.

The first 777-200LR is to be delivered to Pakistan International Airlines later this month. Boeing spokesman Chuck Cadena said the second one -- the plane that made the record-breaking flight -- is scheduled to be delivered sometime in the first quarter.

The twin-aisle jet is designed to carry 301 passengers up to 10,840 miles. The competing Airbus A340-500 has a flight range of about 9,980 miles, according to model specifications listed on the company's Web site.

The 777-200LR has some of the same features as the extended-range 777-300ER, including raked wingtips, which reduce drag. It's designed to carry more weight at takeoff and handle a higher engine thrust, and can accommodate up to three additional fuel tanks, which will allow it to fly farther.

Boeing has received 29 orders for the 777-200LR from five airlines, including Taiwan carrier EVA Airways, Dubai-based Emirates Airlines, Air Canada and Air India.

Boeing 777's Software Glitch

Software glitch meant planes at risk in the air
Steve Creedy, Aviation writer
25 March 2006
The Australian

MORE than 500 Boeing 777s used by airlines around the world flew for almost seven years with a software error that could cause pilots to lose full control of a dangerously pitching plane.

The error was revealed when a Malaysian Airlines 777 travelling from Perth to Kuala Lumpur in August suddenly pitched up in a 3000-ft climb that brought it close to stalling.

Australian investigators said yesterday the error was in the operating software of the air data inertial reference unit (ADIRU), a device that supplies acceleration figures to the aircraft's flight computer.

It had not been detected during original testing of the unit by manufacturer Honeywell prior to the 777's 1995 entry into service but had been suppressed in the first three versions of the operating program.

However, a fourth version of the software deleted the functions that suppressed the error and allowed it to send the Malaysian plane on a heart-stopping roller coaster ride.

The twin-engine 777 is Boeing's flagship and is popular with Asian carriers servicing Australia.

The issue was considered serious enough for the US Federal Aviation Administration to issue an emergency airworthiness directive last August to all 777 operators requiring them to revert to version three of the operating system.

Boeing spokeswoman Liz Verdier agreed last night that the fault was an unacceptable risk, although she said other software on the Malaysian plane "mitigated the event". "It's critical software and it isn't supposed to happen and we don't like it so it needed to get fixed," she said from Seattle.

According to Australian Transport Safety Bureau investigators, the violent pitching experienced by the 177 passengers on flight MH124 resulted from a combination of the faulty software and two failed devices used for measuring acceleration.

A flight attendant began praying as the pilots fought to counter the false data being fed into the plane's autopilot system and primary flight display.

The sudden climb cut the plane's indicated airspeed from 500km/h to 292km/h and activated a "stickshaker" warning that it was approaching a stall speed where it would have insufficient lift to keep flying.

The pilot managed to lower the plane's nose to prevent the stall but his attempts to bring the plane back under control were initially thwarted by the plane's automatic system.

It climbed another 2000ft before he radioed to air traffic controllers that he was unable to maintain altitude and requested assistance to return to Perth.

He was forced to fly manually after tests revealed problems with the aircraft's two autopilot systems and the plane again tried to increase thrust and gave a windshear warning before it landed safely in Perth.

An investigation by the US National Transportation Safety Board revealed that one of six accelerometers available to the ADIRU had failed at the time of the incident and another had been inoperable since July 2001.

The software error meant the unit did not pick up that the accelerometer that had failed in 2001 was unserviceable. It then allowed faulty data from it to be used by the flight computer.

Ms Verdier said Honeywell had investigated how the error occurred and issued new software in November.

"It's in the process of going on airplanes now if they're not completed already," she said.

Boeing 777 software unsafe says FAA

The Federal Aviation Administration in the US has ordered Boeing to fix software in hundreds of 777 aircraft.

The FAA said on Tuesday that software that could cause planes to overrun the runway needed to be fixed in about 820 planes.

During aborted takeoffs in January this year, the software malfunctioned, causing the autopilot to come on, lowering the speed of the plane.

Had takeoff been maintained at that speed, the plane would not have been able to adequately clear obstacles on the ground.

Starting on October 23, 2012, Boeing gets to build the rate of 8.3 airplanes per month

http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.php?s=43&item=2460

It has been a long-time goal finally achieved by Boeing, getting a 777 production of 8 airframes per month in order to meet the demand on orders.

I just really love the B777 (and its variants) that I recall riding on one when I was like nine or eleven with CX on a flight between Manila and Hong Kong. However, I haven't ridden on any of the newer variants of the B777, including the 77W and 77L.

China Airlines announced today that they will be a new 777-300ER operator in 2014.

China Airlines to buy six Boeing 777-300ER planes
Quote:
"China Airlines Ltd, the nation’s largest airline, yesterday announced plans to buy six Boeing 777-300ER aircraft for fleet replacement amid stronger demand from routes to Japan and China.

The carrier made the announcement after its board of directors approved the plan on Thursday.

It said it hoped the six aircraft would be delivered in succession from 2014."
This will be the 1st 777s in their fleet, it will be replacing their 6 A340-300s. This is a change from the news earlier this year that they were considering the 777-300ER and the A350 as the 747-400 replacement. Maybe there will be another order in the near future, and since they now have both the 777 and the A350 on order it has become an open playing field.

I wonder if this order will still be finalized in this month since the net order total for this year is only 17. That's considerably lower then the 200 net orders that Boeing could add to the backlog in 2011.

But there are still some orders that still need to be firmed up.
China Southern - 10 (February 2012)
China Eastern - 20 (April 2012)
Turkish Airlines - 20 (October 2012)

There could be an end years rush with firm orders, or the 777 will have a strong year in 2013.

It's also the second best Boeing plane ever (the 747 is obviously number 1).

I am a big fans of Boeing 777 ever since its introduction back in 1993. And I was lucky enough to experience two things about Boeing 777:
- entering the prototype of Boeing 777 (now owned by Cathay Pacific) during Indonesian Air Show in 1996. I was really amazed by the fact that all seats (including the economy class) featured PTV. A luxury at around that time.

- traveling with brand new Boeing 777 on long distance route, back in 1999. I traveled with the newly delivered Malaysia Airlines Boeing 777 back then.

Speaking of PTVs, the only times I experienced them were CX and AF. All the rest (DL, PR, and UA) had none... Even on their B747s. I'd love to ride an aircraft with advanced PTV (I sometimes call them interactive screens) so that I can watch my favorite shows or see the airshow in real time.
