The Boeing 777-300 is a long range, twin aisle, twin-engine jet manufactured by Boeing, the American aerospace company.
We operate these on routes to Asia and North America.
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 operator 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.
Compared to the 777-200, the Boeing 777-300 features a longer body, raked and extended wingtips, a new main landing gear, reinforced nose gear, and extra fuel tanks.
Technical Advances & Delivery Delta's 777-232 was "designed for the long-haul traveler," offering industry-leading customer service in 1999: 2x2x2 seating in Business Elite, and personal in-seat videos, adjustable footrests, headrests and lumbar support in Economy Class.
Inaugural Both Boeing 777s went into scheduled service on May 1, 1999.
Ship 7001 took off first from Atlanta to London—Gatwick.
Service extended to Cincinnati—London and Atlanta—Frankfurt routes later that year.
Suspended Service & Deliveries On June 11, 1999, Delta announced it was delaying further deliveries of the 777 due to ongoing pilot contract negotiations over pay rates and work rules for the 777. Four more 777s (Ships 7004-7005 & 7007) were also delivered that month.
