772 Vs 773...SIZE Comparison?

Thu May 06, 2004 2:27 am

Hello friends,
Exactly what is the size difference between a 777-200 and 777-300? I have never seen a 773 in person but the impression that I get is that it is HUGE, a lot bigger than a 772. What is your oppinion and how do you think the size compares to other models...A340-600 or 747-400?And, people that have flown in both the 772 and 773, which one did you like better and why?

Best regards

Omshanti

the 773 is about 33 feet longer than the 772. and in three class config, the 773 will hold about 60 more passengers.

I'm pretty sure that at the time of its role out, it was the world's longest airliner. Obviously with the advent of the A340-600 things have changed! But, the 773 combined with the new GE90-115Bs, whoa baby, one big mumma!!!

Spencer: Just to put some numbers to your comment:

773: 242ft 4in long
A345: 222ft 8in long
A346: 246ft 11in

There you go the A346 is 4ft 7in longer than the 773.

Not all that much difference.... takeoff feels slightly (VERY slightly) less powerful on the 773A as it tends to utilize the same engines as its smaller counterpart.

Will be interesting to feel the GE90s on the IGW though  Smile

Thats interesting to know. Same engines seems kind of odd for a significantly larger a/c. thanks for the info though.

A childish way to compare: Buy from HERPA 1:500 scale models, 772 and 773, and you will be amazed that even in such small scale, the size difference is huge!

Not really, particularly when dealing with twinjets (who have to be massively overpowered int he event of an engine failure at MTOW).

It's just that the longer models are ever-so-slightly less massively-overpowered  Big grin
