Well Boeing fans, the new Queen of the Sky's landed in YYZ not too long ago and its AWESOME!!  bouncy 

PIA's 777-200LR is at gate C27 in T3, parked next to her sister a BA 777-300. You can see the differences right away. First off, the engines.....much bigger than the -300. My "GUESS" is about a foot or so. The tail looks larger as well. Looking at her from the front, you can see how much higher it is than the -300. It's taller and fatter, holding an impressively sized crew rest area up in the forward and mid galleys.

I didn't bring my camera today  banghead , but I'm working on the flight on Sunday, I will have plenty of pics to post.

Its nice to see that PIA chose YYZ for its first flight and will continue to do so for their summer sched. Total flight time was about 14.4 hrs, I spoke with the cappy and he said he flew about 70% of the flight...11 hrs or so!!

Anyways, back to the plane I go, just took some time to update you all.

About that.... BA only flies 772s

Good to see the 772LR in service though.

Couple of problems BA don't have any -300s so it should have been a -200, and if so a standard -200 has the same dimensions as a 200LR except for the extra wing span.

But if your looking at the only 200LR I can see why it would look bigger and better. bigthumbsup

None of this can be right, the only physical difference between the -200ER and the -200LR is the raked wingtips, everything else is exactly the same. The fuselage shape and size is identical.

It makes a good story though  Smile

Now, I know of a US airline that has, or is about to have 772ERs, and that's Continental. They'll use them for EWR-China(Shanghai, providing they get government approval-see "Continental wants Shanghai") I take it that this aircraft will be a "best seller" then...

No offense, but where the hell have you been the past few years? They have 18, and are using them to both Europe and Asia, and have since they acquired them.

Hey, I've only been on Anet for not even a full week. Gimme a brake! Big grin Other than that, I've been in the books, trying to get thru college... I intend to graduate in May with a BA in environmental geography. As soon as I get out, I hope to be working for a transportation group somewhere or a local planning commission.

My first post, and it's a correction... don't worry, I'm not always this stickler-ish.

Airplanes, I think, not airlines. I would be thrilled if the 772ER had an order book of 500 airlines!

Welcome aboard! I haven't been around that long myself, not even a full week. I really haven't paid any attention to this stuff until fairly recently.

Yeah, and I have already seen other information that involved Continental Airlines and the 772/ER.

I don't understand why they feel the need for a LR when an ER will do the job perfectly fine? 14.5 hours flight time isn't anywhere close to the maximum range... EWR-HKG is 16 hours.

The engines are different. GE-powered 772ERs use the 85B/90B/94B, while the 772LR uses the 110B. Even though the 110B has a larger fan diameter, it fits within the same nacelle. For spotting purposes, the 110B (and 115B) have forward-swept fan blades, and the inlet cowl anti-ice exhaust exits the nacelle at 5:00 (forward looking aft), compared to 3:00 on the smaller GE90 engines.

Despite what the others are saying you're right, the tail height is 2.5 inches taller than the -200ER and half an inch taller than the -300ER but how you noticed that on a beast like the 777 is beyond me...  Big grin

Are you certain you are talking about a BA 777? My guess is that the BA plane is a 763ER. That is the only way you could see differences you have seen. The difference between the 772ER and the 772LR can only be seen by the wingtips.
