Emirates is an airline based in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, wholly owned by the government of Dubai’s Investment Corporation of Dubai. Formed on March 25, 1985, and commenced operations on October 25, 1985.
The Boeing 777 is a long-range wide-body twin-engine jet airliner. It first flew on June 12, 1994, and entered service (777-200) on June 7, 1995, with United Airlines. It is the world’s largest twinjet commercial aircraft and the first designed entirely with a computer. Developed in consultation with eight major airlines, it is Boeing’s first fly-by-wire. The 777-200LR variant is one of the worlds longest-range airliners, capable of flying more than halfway around the globe and holds the record for the longest non-stop flight by a commercial aircraft.
The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER with British Airways on February 9, 1997. The 777-300 on May 27, 1998, with Cathay Pacific. The first extended-range 777-300ER went to Air France on April 29, 2004, and the 777-200LR to Pakistan International Airlines on February 26, 2006. The production freighter model, the 777F, made its maiden flight on July 14, 2008, with the first delivery taking place on February 19, 2009, to Air France.
The B777 is built mainly with aluminium alloys along with composite materials. The fuselage is a conventional semi-monocoque structure, circular in cross section tapering to a blade-shaped tail cone. The long slender wing with a very high aspect ratio is of a low mounted cantilever design swept back at 31.6 degrees. The 777-300ER, -200LR and 777F, variants have extended raked wingtips. The tail unit is of cantilever design with a variable incident tailplane and separately controlled elevators.
It has a glass cockpit, digital fly-by-wire controls, software-configurable avionics and the first commercial airliner to use fibre optic avionics. The fly-by-wire system, supplemented by a mechanical backup retains regular control yokes rather than sidestick controllers. It has a tricycle undercarriage with a two-wheeled nose and under each wing six-wheeled units. The aircraft has the biggest landing gear and biggest tires of any commercial airliner. Flight crew consists of a pilot and copilot. Seats 314 to 396 passengers with a range of 9,704 to 15,844 km (6,030 to 9845 mi) depending on variant and seating arrangement.
The aircraft’s two engines are suspended on pylons under the wings and are the largest-diameter turbofans ever used. Customers of the 777-200, extended-range -200ER, and -300 versions had a choice of three high-bypass turbofans, the General Electric GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. The longer-range 777-300ER, -200LR and 777F use high-output GE90 high-bypass turbofans.
