Does anyone know the AC numbers for these two planes?


Emirates officials, led by the airline's Chairman H.H. Sheikh Ahmed bin Saeed Al-Maktoum and Boeing Commercial Airplanes Chief Executive Alan Mulally, on Friday celebrated delivery of the airline's first two Boeing 777-300ER airplanes.

The Dubai-based airline will receive 10 777-300ERs this year, with four coming from International Lease Finance Corp (ILFC) and six from General Electric Commercial Aviation Service (GECAS). The airline currently operates 21 Boeing 777s and plans to increase its fleet through lease and direct purchases to 51 by late 2007, making it one of the world's largest 777 operators.

"We believe the 777-300ER provides an economically sound option for carrying even more passengers greater distances, and the trust we have in the 777 family and the airplanes' proven performance and reliability is only enhanced by our passengers' appreciation for its interior roominess," said Sheikh Ahmed.

Sheikh Ahmed added that "the revenue capability from both cargo and passengers weighed heavily in our decision to purchase the 777-300ER and we also are taking advantage of new electronic technologies offered by Boeing on these new 777s."

The Emirates 777-300ERs are the first equipped with the Boeing Electronic Flight Bag; the only fully integrated and certified Class 3 EFB in commercial service. The EFB replaces the large amount of paper crews now carry for flights, placing all required data in digital format at the pilot's fingertips.

Emirates is the largest EFB customer with 30 units on order. Its airplanes are also the first commercial jets equipped with Boeing's Terminal Wireless technology, allowing a two-way broadband data connection with the airport gate from touchdown to takeoff.

Emirates will use the 777-300ER to provide extra capacity on existing routes and to serve new destinations planned. The airline currently serves 78 destinations worldwide and is implementing an aggressive plan for future growth.

Emirates and Boeing worked together on the development of an innovative LED mood-lighting system, including a tranquil "starry night sky" viewed on the cabin ceiling that helps ease passengers to sleep.

The Boeing 777 family of airplanes is the world's most advanced and continues to evolve with the recent addition of the world's longest range airliner, the 777-200LR Worldliner, and the Boeing 777 Freighter. To date, more than 35 airlines have placed orders for more than 680 777s, making it the most preferred airplane in its class.

This, plus lengthy talks for an impending 772LR order on the horizon. Good stuff!

I think they can delivery of an aircraft although the aircraft is still at PAE; delivery would be when Boeing gets paid for the aircraft and transfers the operating certificate to the airline.

I believe A6-EBB is due to depart Seattle today - 29 March, arriving DXB on 30 March. First revenue service for the aircraft will be the EK418 DXB-BKK-SYD on 31 March departing DXB at 09.00 local. This will be a 3 class config. acft and feature Emirates new F class flat bed seats. This includes the mini-bar, and 19" LCD monitors etc.. All the B777-300ERs will have the "mood lighting" system that is on the A340-500s and the full blown ICE IFE system.

I love the 773ER , looking forward to see more of them in EK Colours but please no 772LR ! The A345s are doing just fine , I don't see a new need for 772LR.

The EK A345s already have this, so I don't see how Emirates and Boeings worked together on this...

Maybe they should order the 747A (pax), then they can operate pretty much every widebody made by Boeing and Airbus...



Firings, if well done, are good for employee morale.

OK - change of plan. EK418 will not be the first rev. service for A6-EBB. There's a late change - perhaps not enough time to prepare the acft for EIS after arrival from Seattle. A B777-200ER will be substituted on the 31st on the EK418.

Boeing (or conversly Airbus) can make cabin fittings and options for application on another manufacture's equippment. Boeing's Connexion system is flying with LH's A340 fleet...

I can attest to the fullblown ICE IFE system.

700 channels is just way too many to decide. Even on a 14 hour flight between DXB and SYD, I ended up just listening to music. Cool that it has top of the pops.. ranging from 1950 - 2000. Want to know what the top song was on each day of each year? Yep... EK has it all!
