No, the 777 order is still alive, but the -200LR part of it is dead, I believe. The airline will order 777-300ERs (Airbus's plan to sell them 340-5/600s having failed). The airline could still order -200ERs, as it's quite a gap between the A330-200 and 777-300ER. And, as CO shows, the -200ER can fly virtually any route to Europe/US that BR would want to fly, including TPE-EWR, which is presumably in their planning.

Then again, Yahoo News also reported that EVA had cancelled all 777s in March of last year... so take it for what you will.

Boeing had said that it planned to unlock the 772LR's development in April of this year even when it only had 3 orders... I doubt they'd suddenly cancel it especially now that other airlines are beginning to show interest (i.e., EK and a 772LRF).

With the world cargo forecast Boeing put out late last year, they'd almost have to carry forth with a 772F based on the 772LR. There aren't enough 90t freighters in the world to match the demand that they themselves forecasted.

I wonder what Airbus will do.

EK resurrected the idea last August, Boeing states that it's plans to build such an aircraft is in a very early stage.

You miss read the article.

The article says "PARTS of the 777 order", not "ALL 777 order".
