The A market aircraft are the non ER planes. What we know as the 777-200ER was originally designated as the B Market, i believe. The A market planes have less range than the 777-200ER, from what i've read on these boards, the 777-200A struggles to do Sea-Nrt, which is the shortest Mainland US-Japan transpac route at 4896 statute miles, but are perfect for Midwest or east coast to Europe, where they're mostly used. I believe UA is the only US carrier to operate the 777-200A, which it does along side the 200ER

As for pre-stretch, that I have no clue about.



Why are people so against low yields?! If lower yields means more people can travel abroad, i'm all for it

The non ER aircraft (A-market) have 3 more F seats than the non ER.
There are only 3 A-market aircraft in the fleet; G-ZZZA/B and C.

Are you sure? The AA B777s are all 223ERs.

ALL AA 777 are -200ER until some recently ordered -300ER's arrive. AA ordered their 777 later then United, the 777 was already in service when AA ordered their planes. The only US airline with -200A is UA since they were the launch customer and wanted the 777 as soon as Boeing could deliver them.

Looks like I was wrong on that. I thought that they picked up about half a dozen A models used (or meant for another airline...) a few years back. But according to Airfleets, they are indeed ERs
