Does anyone know of any published data showing projected operating cost differences between the new 777-200LR and either the -200ER or the 747-400?
Any help would be appreciated

I would assume the -200LR would be a little higher than the -200ER simply because its hauling around extra fuel, if not then atleast the extra tanks and shit. I would imagine the 744 would be a fair bit higher simply because its overall a bigger plane to begin with.

disclaimer: I've assumed all of the above I could easily be wrong.

I would expect 777-200LR (which has raked wingtips) to burn less fuel than the 200ER for a given gross weight, so it might turn out to be cheaper to operate.


The glass isn't half empty, or half full, it's twice as big as it needs to be.

I recall Widebodyphotog posting a while back that the B777-200LR burns less fuel than the B777-200ER on missions longer than about 2000nm.
