I recently read that EVA Air have cancelled their order for 777-200LR's in favour of a better deal offered by Airbus. The airline also claims its switch to the A340 derived from concern that it remained the sole customer for the 777-200LR.
Given these circumstances, what is the future for the 777-200LR and does it have any orders at all?

Nope ua does not have any LRs on order. Currently the only customer for this type is the EVA airline of Taiwan. However it is rumored that they might cancel the order, due to being the only customer for this type.

Like Cruising said, EVA Air denied the cancellation a few weeks ago. EVA Air is the only customer for the 777-200LR but I believe ILFC has options and can convert orders from the 777-300ER they have on order. Maybe Thai Airways Intl will order 777-200LR to replace 747-300 and MD-11 ? Thai is said to be looking to order 11 more planes for new thinner routes to Europe and possibly the US. The777Man
