Good news, ConcordeBoy and nice shot, too. And 767-332ER, ConcordeBoy and The 777 Man would know better than I but I believe PIA is getting two, I'm not sure who, if anyone, else. It hasn't been a big seller as of yet but with the world economy on the upswing, there should be more orders, though the -300ER will still by far outstrip it. Be interesting to see how its' economics compares with the heavier A345, if favorable, we might start to see it rack up some orders at the expense of that model.

Seeing that the 777-300ER just got more performance, the 772LR will have more range than originally planned.
CO737800, the 777-200LR competes with the A340-500, while the 777-300ER competes with the A340-600.
AvObserver, hopefully SQ will order them to replace the A345s. It might sell very well seeing that it has the other efficiencies of the 777 and can go mighty far. Of course the market for superlong range planes is very small to begin with.

The 777300ER is a stretched 777-300. It holds about 368 pax.
The 777-200 LR (Long Range) is a 777-200ER with more fuel tanks and a higher MTOW. It holds the same # of pax as a -200ER (301) but has more range.

EVA Air has 3 777-200LR on order, as shown above, and Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) has two on order. There has been rumors that SQ would order some but that's just speculation. Hopefully more orders for this model will be placed when the aircraft starts test flights etc.
