Okay. Being a nitpicker I'd say a new problem arises: 77W then stands for 77(7)ER, and not necessarily a 77-3-ER. But the little sum makes sense, so thanks anyway.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon January 31, 2011:
The 'W' in 77W stands for ER as in
E = 5th letter of alphabet
R = 18th letter of alphabet

5+18 = 23 = W

I'm an Airbus A320/330 man myself, but that is one very pretty looking aircraft. Hopefully I get to fly aboard this beauty one day...

A visitor from Netherlands posted Thu September 23, 2010:
To my fellow Jordanian man; perhaps, but I myself found the distance to hardly matter, and in fact, if anything, make the effect worse from shorter distances.
And then: of course 77W means a 773ER, I wanted to know: why a 'W'? What does that mean? 'Wordliner' maybe?

A visitor from Canada posted Wed August 4, 2010:
The 77W is the code used for 777-300ER planes. ER stands for extended range. The plane is a little bit different then the 777-300, like longer wingspan for example and of course range.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 18, 2010:
I'd always wondered how would a 777-300 look in BA livery. Thank you for posting such shot :) Mohammad

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Sun July 4, 2010:
Great shot. Anyone know when this is due to be delivered? Has British Airways gone for Rolls Royce Trent or GE engines? And what routes are they likely to use this a/c on, I presume maybe the LHR - SIN type route, which they currently use a 777 for one of the two daily flights.

A visitor from Romania posted Sun July 4, 2010:
"W" stands for WOW, the reaction when you're close to it and realise how long it really is

A visitor from Jordan posted Sun July 4, 2010:
To my fellow dutch man below, I also checked the BA 772 pictures to see if the position of the words was any different, but obvious also saw it is almost exactly the same.

So I guess that because of the length of the aicraft the picture will be from a little further away and so will make the door edge more apparent in the 't' of British.

It seems that some of the others here noticed the same thing.

A visitor from Netherlands posted Mon June 28, 2010:
The BA titles were exactly on the same place on the 777-200, and I never heard anyone about it then... Obviously it has no winglets,like any 777, but it has the raked wingtips of the 200LR and 300ER (and 777F) which I find more beautiful anyway.
Finally, I want to repeat the question: what does the 'W' in '77W' stand for?

Incredible bird in BA colors.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 25, 2010:
Brilliant pic, it looks like the rat is out too!

A visitor from Switzerland posted Fri June 25, 2010:
Beautiful aircraft

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 25, 2010:
I'm surprised there are no winglets on this new aircraft.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Fri June 25, 2010:
Someone asked about the seating.... This aircraft will be the first to have the new World Traveler (Economy), World Traveler Plus (Premium Economy) installed. It will have the current Next Generation Club World seating, and the New First product. It will be delivered to BA with the WT and WT+ seating already installed as factory fit, then go to CWL (Cardiff) to have Club and First installed.

A visitor from - posted Fri June 25, 2010:
Wow...I was standing behind you taking the same pictures that day. Were you the guy talking to the other guy in the Porsche? My wife and I took the Boeing tour and grabbed a few shots of the planes landing. Small world that I came upon your great picture today on this site.

A visitor from Spain posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Lol yeah i read "BRITFISH AIRWAYS" at first

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Five stars! The most beautiful aircraft on (or above) earth, the 777-300..... and British Airways! I have waited sooo long for this

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Beautiful aircraft on a great airline.

A visitor from Sweden posted Thu June 24, 2010:

Impressive photo

A visitor from Morocco posted Thu June 24, 2010:
This plane looks so smart and gracious! Almost looking like a toy...

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Wow! didn't know that BA had ordered this aircraft...what a nice surprise!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Amazing plane in an amazing livery. Cheers from Canada!

A visitor from Germany posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Great picture. At the first time i read "Brifish Airways" instead of British Airways ^^

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Am looking forward to seeing this at LHR,777 300 er's are just awesome and looks great in any livery

A visitor from Brazil posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Looks great in BA

A visitor from Australia posted Thu June 24, 2010:
I like the long fuselage of the 777, with its clean lines, giving it a sleek look. The BA livery is elegant & regal looking.
The close proximity to the threshhold gives the impression of the 777 hovering.

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Simply gorgeous.

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Great photo. I can now see why this registration was chosen. (BA at the top of the fin is unique)
I do think this new a/c would have given an opportunity for BA to put some branding on the underside of the fuselage. The BA apeedwing maybe ?

A visitor from Israel posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Great photo

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:
Looks great! Does anyone know what the seating will be? Will this have the new FIRST product?

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:
BA should put their name over door 2. So why is it called a 77"W"? What's the "W" mean?

A visitor from United Kingdom posted Thu June 24, 2010:
She looks lovely! Well done!

A visitor from - posted Thu June 24, 2010:

A visitor from - posted Wed June 23, 2010:
I was waiting to finaly see this picture for years!
cant believe it!
the most beautiful plane on earth with one of the best liveries around!

A visitor from Jordan posted Wed June 23, 2010:
Great bird and the livery look good on it, just think that the edge of the door cutting through the ITI of BRITISH makes it hard to read.

Not sure where but they should shift it a bit.

A visitor from - posted Wed June 23, 2010:
Its about time to see one of these! awesome!

A visitor from - posted Wed June 23, 2010:
