Quick n easy question: What's the matter with Boeings designation of B777 freighters?

LAN's B777 full freighter is called 777-F6N, AFs is 777-F28 ... whereas AeroLogics is 777-2ZN(FLR) .. so LANs and AFs is not a Long range model? Or why is there a difference in designation amongst Boeing usual strict and very and logic labeling of aircrafts via version and customer code?

I would assume all of them are either 777-2XXF or 777-2XXLRF just like the 747-4XXERF.

Quoting JohnClipper (Reply 1):
777-2XXF or 777-2XXLRF

So, there actualy are two B777F models? Standard and Long Range?

Whoever described AeroLogic's freighter as 777-2ZN(FLR) is making a mistake. It's a 777-FZN, and the model in general is just called the 777F, not the 777-200F or 777-200LRF.

That's a departure from Boeing's past and current practice with other aircraft families; for example, a 747-400ER freighter is called a 747-400ERF, and a 747-8 freighter is called a 747-8F.

Well, technically the 747-8 freighter or passenger version would be 747-830 (for Lufthansa).

That's what I thought as well!

Right, that's why I wondered! Thanks a lot for making things clear!

there is nothing wrong with the model numbers.
These last 2 digits is the airline/leasing company's designators.

Have a look, all Air France Boeing purchased aircraft's models last 2 digits end with 28, meaning they were customer number 28 of Boeing years ago. The same goes for LAN and AeroLogic. If the aircraft is owned by a leasing cumpony, the last 2 digits will be theirs.

Thanks, Sure, I'm fully aware of the 2-digit-customer-codes .. however that was not the center of my question, I ust wondered why one is called 777-Fxx while the other is labeled 777-2xx (LRF) .... (replace x with respective customer code) ... as there is only one B777 freighter product offered by Boeing, I wondered what the official naming was  Smile
