777's Telling The Difference?

Fri Oct 27, 2006 6:54 pm

Hi folks,

What are the visual differences between the 777 series of aircraft?

If I'm looking at a 777-200 and a 777-300ER how do I know?

Thanks in advance,

Spru!

Thanks for that, so all 300ER's have the GE90 series of engines, but what about the rst of the 777 series?

The 777-300's also have 5 doors on each side as opposed to 4 on the 777-200's.

My glass is neither 1/2 empty nor 1/2 full, rather, the glass itself is twice as big as it should be.

777-200 and -200ER have either PW, RR, or GE engines (the GE engines are noticeably bigger; I can't actually tell the difference between the PW and RR). 777-300 have PW and RR (although GE may be offered as an option?). 777-200LR and -300ER have GE only.

Quoting Spruit (Thread starter):

777-300/300ER are a good 30-odd feet longer than 777-200/200ER, and as mentioned, have 5 doors per side, rather than 4.

-200LR and -300ER both have raked wingtips.

So based on that, the only ones that are difficult to tell apart are -200's from -200ER's (at least for me!). However, I think there are far more -200ER's in service than -200's.

The Length is the best Give away.

Surprised nobody mentioned the raked wingtips also - these are probably the most visible difference after the length...

You should easily be able to tell the difference by length and nothing more:

Not sure if this is what you're asking, but as was mentioned, the -200LR and -300ER have raked wingtips. The rest do not.
