The B777 is a long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliner manufactured by Boeing. The B777 is the world's largest twinjet and has a capacity of over 300 passengers, with a range of 5,235 to 9,380 nautical miles, depending on the model. It was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between the 767 and 747. The 777 ranks as one of Boeing's best-selling models. The 777 is more fuel-efficient than others and because of rising fuel costs, airlines have acquired the type as an alternative to other wide-body jets. This specific 777 model is the 777-200, which is the original model and first entered service in 1995.
