Emirates gets first Boeing 777 Worldliner

Boeing and Emirates completed the delivery of the airline’s first 777-200LR Worldliner this past Friday. Boeing’s 777-200LR is the world’s longest-range twin-engine commercial jet and Emirates is one of the largest operators of the 777 family.

The airline’s first of 10 777-200LRs on order is shown here departing Paine Field during flight testing.

Emirates placed an order for 24 777-300ERs, 10 777-200LRs and 8 777 Freighters at the Dubai Air Show in 2005.
