The guide I use is a bit rough but is as follows: The first giveaway is to look at the end of the fuselage. Look to where it comes to a point on most a/c but on the 777 it ends with a small vertical section which looks a bit odd. The APU exhaust is on the Port side of this ending (on all the 777's i've seen). The next obvious thing is the engines, if you are not the sort of person who can distinguish between types of RB211, then no probs, the engines on a 777 are LARGE, whichever variant. Look at the window size to get a rough idea.
Next is the fuselage in general, it looks a lot bigger than most other aircraft and is easily distinguishable from a 767. Finally, look above the flightdeck, the fuselage seems to curve for an awful long time on the 777 and this looks significantly different from other aircraft.
I hope that I have helped a little with this. If you don't understand it, dont worry, its my poor explanation. Of course you could always cross-check the reg or use a pair of binocs to read the "boeing 777-xxx" off the back of the fuselage.

Hey Mark152, I have always been able to distinguish the 777 from a similar jet by how it ends at the back. However, can you please post some pictures here showing its APU exhaust in comparison to other planes? Also, how can the 767 be distinguished from the A300 besides through the wing fences?

oh... almost forgot.........


Blink182,
My mom flew to ANC from ATL last month. I saw a British Airways 767 there. it landed right before a Delta 777. No, I'm sorry I don't have a picture. I remember that because it was the first time I had ever seen a British Airways plane.

The quickest way for me to ident the Trip 7 is the triple bogey undercarriage.

All Airbus widebodies seem to curve upwards at their rear ends to provide more cargo space. Boeings do not do this - they are completely flat from end to end.
