Emirates Boeing 777-200 Fleet List

Current Emirates Boeing 777-200 Routes.

Development of the 777 began in 1990 when British Airways along with All Nippon Airways, American Airlines,al  Cathay Pacific, Delta, United Airlines, QANTAS and Japan Airlines became involved with Boeing in consultation to decide the design specification for a new aircraft to bridge the capacity gap between the 767 and the 747.

The 777-200 is the original “A” market model. Emirates took delivery of the first of their order for three 777-200s when A6-EMD was delivered on 5 June 1996. These aircraft were delivered in the original “small logo” Emirates livery.

The aircraft were initially used to spearhead the airline’s expansion into Europe and Asia. However as newer and larger types have come on stream the aircraft have been allocated to Middle East and Indian services with the occasional European or Far East rotation.

As numbers 30, 33 and 42 off the Boeing production line Emirates’ 777-200s are some of the earliest examples still flying. The aircraft are designated 77H within the fleet and are fitted with 42 Deep Reclining seats in Business Class and 304 seats in Economy. Economy cabins have been fitted with the new Weber seats and ICE entertainment is featured throughout.
