Introduction

The -200ER (77E) was the second model of the 777 family. At the beginnings of the 777 programm it was known as the 777-200B and/or the -200IGW.
The start of the 777 program was a deal between Boeing and United Airlines in October 1990. This act was underlined by a handwritten order for 18 200Bs on the 15th October 1990. Only two weeks later the Boeing board gave the OK for starting the 777 program.
The first rollout of the 77E (GE-powered) was on the 21st August 1996, even UAL was the first launch customer to order the 77E with P&W-engines.
The first customer besides UAL was Euralair of France. But shortly after ordering the 77E Euralair cancelled its order.
At first Boeing thought this could be perhaps a bad Omen for the -200B/IGW/ER, but later it was clear that this cancellation was no bad sign for the 77E.
The 77E is the workhorse of its family, slowly but surely the 77W will take this role over.

First Flight, Test Programm and Certification

The first 77E made its maiden flight on the 7th October 1996.
On the 17th January 1997 the 77E became its typecertification and on the 7th July 1997 the 1st 200ER (G-VIIA) was delivered to British Airways.
Only three days later BA introduced the 77E into its network on a flight from LHR to BOS.
The 1st Rolls-Royce-powered 77E made its maiden flight on 21st November 1996, with certification in April 1997. First airline customer was Emirates of the United Arab Emirates, which now is the #1 customer for the 777-family.

Delivery, 1st commercial flight

A Malaysia Airline 200ER set a Great Circle Distance record w/o landing on April 2, 1997 by flying from Boeing's factory to Kuala Lumpur. A distance of 20.044km and was flown in 21:23 hours.
Besides a yet-available LongerRange 777 (77L), the 77E flies still some of the longest 777 flights; Please see in "Statistics" for further information.
