Boeing Completes 1,000th 777, Will Go To Emirates

Sat Mar 03, 2012 7:31 pm

Boeing on Friday celebrated completion of its 1,000th 777 twin-engine, wide-body airliner. The 777-300ER will soon be delivered to Emirates as A6-EGO, and bears commemorative "1,000th 777" titles on the rear of the fuselage.

Assembling One Thousand of any transport category aircraft is a significant accomplishment.

It would be interesting to compare the total weights - OWE - of those programs with such production numbers.

Great job Boeing... May the T7's continue to orbit the earth for many future years....

and bless those big GE90s that give the T7s the ability to get up near the angels....

And lets see, there are what 997 in service? Two written off and wasnt there an early -200 scrapped as well? either way at least 95% of them are all still flying.

Those 777s still flying would be closer to 99.7%, if my calculations are correct.

No, it's the 102nd, cargo and passenger combined.

I think that PP-VRD (ex-RG) was scrapped, but PP-VRC is still stored somewhere (FRA?), not in service also. That would make 996 in service, or 99,6%.

The best part is that the 777 program shows no signs of slowing down.

The 757 reached 1,050. The 767 is at 1,022 and counting, but won't make it too much farther as a civilian airliner. But with the 777X, the 777 is pretty much guaranteed 1,500 and has a very good shot at 2,000.

As a Seattle native who is partial to Boeing I hope the 787 program turns out the same way.

Congratulations for Boeing for the 1000th 777 frame and to EK as well.
EK also the only airline to operate all types of 777.

Well done Boeing and EK.

Congratulations to Boeing indeed. I do me some Airbus, but Boeing has been a mainstay in the majority of my flights and I loved every second.

Here's to many more successful years.

Only 4 777's have left the world. Two were involved in non-fatal accidents (he British Air and Egypt Air incidents) and two have been scrapped----these were 26917 (8) and 27109 (19) and only 1 777 is in storage at Wallops Island awaitng a new owner and that is 27108 (17)

This is a remarkable achievement in two ways----no aircraft type I know of has hit 1,000 with not one human life lost and to have only 1 aircraft looking for a home is well simply amazing....

Quite true; a remarkable achievement - and long may it last. There's plenty of life left in the 777 and hopefully, Boeing (and EK!) will be launching the 777-8X/9X later this year.

The Embraer 145/135 production line has built about 1140 without a single life lost of passengers and crew. But up to debate is if you have to count that a mid air by a 135BJ made a GOL 737 crash, at the time there were just 970 built.
Speaking of which, this september 2006 crash was the first fatal 737NG crash, at the time there were about 2050 built
nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

I did not have access to the exact numbers on how many we're stored so I figured at least 95% would be a safe number to guess.

And approximately 320 of those 1,000 delivered have been the -300ER version (according to Boeing's O&D engine). That in itself is quite a feat.

I visited Everett on February 7th and saw on the assembly line during the Boeing tour. It's great to see the 777 program reach this milestone. Although it's an apple to oranges comparison, it's interesting the it took almost 25 years for the 747 to reach 1000 examples but the 777 has done it in less than 18.

I have visited the Everett plant five times now. My first visit was back in May of 1993 and I saw the 1000th 747 being built, 9V-SMU for Singapore Airlines. As an aviation enthusiast, I am happy to have seen the 1000th example of the two great aircraft being built almost 20 years apart.

BTW, as stated in another thread, the 1000th 747 is now with Southern Air as a cargo aircraft.
