On a related note, this month, the total 777 deliveries will pass the total 767 deliveries. As of the end of June, 1027 767s had been delivered and one more to LAN in July (CC-BDE) = 1028 total 767s. At present, 1025 777s have been delivered and Boeing deliver roughly seven 777s per month.

All versions of the 777 are still offered, but the chances of an airline deciding not to choose the -300ER, -200LR, or -200F over the -200/ER and -300 are rather slim.
Hmmm. Boeing removed the 200A and 300A from 'current models' some time back, so I don't believe they are offered. The -200ER is of course still offered - there is a freshly built Asiana -200ER l/n 1027 (one of two orders) and ANA have three more -200ERs (from an order of five) due to go to them. Not sure what the survivor/successor entity to AA
will do about AA
's -200ER orders - but a conversion of those to 77Ws is quite possible.
