AFAIK (my latest information) is AF the 1st customer getting their 777-300ER!
But Le Bourget shows the plane as a B777-346ER so it should be for JAL.

AF gets the first 773ER in April 2004.

As stated earlier, the airport currently on display at LBG is the "blessed" 777-346ER for JL.

Air France will be the first airline to operate the 777-300ER. First delivery will be in Apr04 to ILFC who will lease it to AF.

The test aircraft flying around now will be delivered to Japan Airlines (JL) in the summer of 2004.

Saudi Arabian doesn't currently have any 777-300ERs on order. They have taken delivery of all their ordered 777s (23 777-200ER). They have been rumored to order 777-300ER to replace their 747-100s and possibly even 777-200LR.
