Quoting adam42185 (Reply 10): How far out is the production schedule set? Any way of telling who the 1000th will go to?
I think it's only scheduled out to around 950 or so right now. I know the 1000th one hasn't been decided yet, although the orders are there. Interestingly, the 767 is approaching 1000 soon. 992 was the most recently delivered.

Quoting netjets21 (Reply 3): I didn't realize that there had been 888 777's delivered.
I don't think we have reached 888 delivered (yet). There are at-least two (one of the three EVA 77Ws and BA's G-STBB) built before line no 888 that have not been delivered. So, perhaps 886 777s have been delivered.
The current Boeing 777 production rate is five per month (to go back to seven in mid-2011). So a reasonable target date for roll-out of the 1000th 777 would be March 2012 .
The best time to plant a tree is 40 years ago. The second best time is today.
I think the 767 is slowing down. Only 3 orders this year. And the production rate is pretty low, something around 1 or 2 a month? The only future I can see for the 767 right now is as an interum until 787, freighters and (I hesitate to bring it up) as a Tanker. 55 still to deliver, though.
777 still has quite a lot of life in her. I talked to a Fed Ex pilot, and he said they love them and can't get them fast enough.

According to Boeing's Order's and Deliveries website, two of the EVA Air 77Ws were delivered last year in December although they are no in service yet. L/N 863 and L/N 886 haven't been delivered yet.so the info I have is that there have been 886 777s delivered.
