777's 7th Birthday

Fri Jun 07, 2002 8:10 pm

Seven years ago today, a United Airlines Triple7 departed LHR for IAD, marking the first commercial flight for the 777 ever.

just a little congratulation  Smile, happy birthday 777.

Since the 777 Program was launched in 1990, the Triple7 has logged 603 orders from 37 customers around the world. The 404th 777 is flying.

~~~ Fly with a Triple Seven and you feel like in heaven ~~~

Seven years and I still haven't been on one.

Where is the best economy seat on a B777 and which airline and route?

First flight was LHR-IAD? Oh, I'd thought that it was IAD-CDG.

Either way, happy b-day Triple! Best airliner to take to the skies!

BR715-A1-30, the 115,000 pound thrust engine is the GE90, not the Trent 800. Nevertheless, happy 7th birthday Boeing 777! Big grin

My congratulations also on 7 safe and profitable years of service of what may be the most advanced commercial aircraft in service today. May the new -300ER and -200LR versions continue this proud legacy.

br715-a1-30,
the 777 was so unhappy about his present that we took those nasty old rolls engines and returned them for the pratt and whitney's
now he is happy.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY 777

The 777 - a great plane, very advanced and a design which has won many awards for its brilliance. A lovely plane to fly in - very quiet and comfortable and with the best IFE around (I flew on BA's 777s).

Long live the 777.

Hop to it, fly for life!
