Some snipets of the press release worth mentioning here:

777-300ER flew more than 32,000 hours during its first year.

99.2 percent average schedule reliability rate that surpasses previous 777 model introductions


..To date, 17 have been delivered to Air France, ANA, Japan Airlines, and Emirates and Boeing has received 108 orders for the 777-300ER from eleven customers, not including recently announced commitments from Air Canada and Air India.

GE's GE90-115B engines have experienced no unscheduled engine removals and no in-flight shutdowns – a remarkable achievement for an entry into service of a new jet engine.

"This is arguably GE's best ever entry into service of a new commercial jet engine," said Chaker Chahrour, general manager of GE's GE90 Engine Program. "The engine reliability has been outstanding, and our fuel burn is better than predicted, which contributes to the excellent economics of the aircraft. Our customers are truly delighted with the engine performance."


Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

Quite a contrast to the A345/6 performance described in Flight and discussed on a.net last week. Additional reasons besides fuel mileage and payload capability that are creating more 777LR orders?
