Boeing has delivered the 900th 777, a 777-200LR handed over to Ethiopian Airlines at its Everett plant on November 17.
“The 777-200LR is the only airplane that provides the range and efficiency that Ethiopian needs to service its long haul routes,” said Larry Loftis, Boeing Commercial Airplane’s vice president and general manager, 777 program. “And it’s our pleasure to deliver this airplane, our 900th, to a first time 777 customer.”
Boeing says the 777 program reached the 900th milestone “faster than any other twin aisle airplane in history”. The first 777 customer delivery was to United Airlines in May 1995.
