The Boeing 777-300 is a
high-capacity stretched version of the newest wide-body twinjet from
Boeing Commercial Airplane Group. This newest member of the 777 family
of jetliners is "market driven" to meet airline demand for a
jetliner sized to replace older wide-body airplanes, including early
versions of the 747.
The formal authorization, or "go-ahead," for the program followed announcements at the 1995 Paris Air Show that four airlines (All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways, Korean Airlines and Thai Airways International) intended to order 31 of the long-range twinjets valued at approximately $3.1 billion, depending on configurations, special features and options selected -- the first Boeing program launched entirely with international orders. more
