I have noticed that aircraft from Boeing usually are not made in the 100 seriers. The first 777 to come out was the -200, wasn't it? I have only heard of the 727-100 and the 747-100 so far! what else is there?

there is also a 737-100, but there is no 757, 767, or 777 -100 model.

FAUnited7 We have bought this topic up about three times so do not be surprised if someone says read the messages before or something uneccesary like that. But there are
707-100
727-100
737-100
747-100
The 707 and 737 were early models adn only a few of them were built then the 200 came out. But I think that the 777-100 was a test model or they might think 100 sound old.

Oh, sorry to those people, but I just started doing posts. thank-you for all your answers! Is there a reason for no 757,767,777-100's?

Boeing was thinking of making the 777-100, but I believe they have scrapped the project. It was supposed to be a longer range 777, but it seems there weren't really any airlines interested in it.

Hello FAUnited7. I'm Ben. How are you?
In fact there has been no 757, 767 and 777 so far in the 100 series. In the 1970's, when Boeing was designing the 757 and 767, they did design a 100 model but it never left the drawing board because no airline showed any interest in it. So they started with the design of the 200 models right away, which were the first models to leave the drawing board and be bought by airline customers. The 767-200 and 757-200 were the first models of the 757/767 family to come out in the early 1980's. The 767 first flew in September of 1981 and the 757 had its maiden flight in February of 1982.
I think that is why there was initially no 100 model for the 777 because they thought that there would be no interest in a 777-100 from airlines, maybe it is now by principle that when Boeing designs a new aircraft, the first series number to be assigned is 200. However, a 777-100 is still under study at Boeing.
Best regards and have a great year 1999!

With the 767 boeing had planned to build a 100 model, which would have had a shorter fuselage allowing it to take longer flights. Instead they were able to make the 767-200 available with different gross weights.

The 777-100 was to be a shortened fuse. -200 model with very long range, but the airlines thought it was too small, so Boeing created the -200IGW instead. The 757-100 was too close to the 737s capacity, so airlines didn't want it. Same thing with the 767-100 model, it was too close in capacity to the 757-200.
