    Boeing Delivers 777th 777 to Air France with New Airline Livery

    SEATTLE, April 10, 2009 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] and longtime partner Air France celebrated significant milestones today with the delivery of the 777th Boeing 777 airplane. The new Boeing 777-300ER also will be the first to bear a new Air France livery and company brand identity.

    The 777 family is the world's most successful twin-engine, twin-aisle airplane. Fifty-six customers around the world have ordered just over 1,100 777s. The 777's combination of unmatched payload and range, as well as the lowest fuel consumption and operating costs in its class, make it one of the most popular airplanes with passengers and airlines. Air France operates one of the largest fleets of 777s in the world and was the launch customer for both the 777-300ER and the 777 Freighter. "The 777 has been a valuable asset to the long-haul fleet of Air France and it is the right aircraft to allow us to maximize our revenues in the most economic and efficient manner," said Pierre Vellay, senior vice president, New Aircraft & Corporate Fleet Planning, Air France.

    "It is a fitting tribute to the success of the program that an industry leader such as Air France is taking delivery of our 777th 777," said Aldo Basile vice president, Sales Europe, Russia and Central Asia for Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The 777 continues to offer an unbeatable combination of efficiency, economics and passenger comfort that places it at the forefront of modern commercial aviation."

    The relationship between Air France and Boeing goes back to the early days of the airline, which celebrated its 75th anniversary last year. Air France's early fleet of DC-3s sported the distinctive silver and royal blue livery that was used to launch the airline.

    Three generations of Boeing airplanes have carried three Air France liveries. The first was with the arrival of the jet age and the Boeing 707. The second opened up long-haul international travel, epitomized by the Boeing 747 and finally, today with the unveiling of the Boeing 777-300ER. The latest incarnation of the distinctive Air France livery continues the all-white theme but is intended to position the company in the 21st century as a truly international carrier that has more than half of its passengers based outside France.

      Boeing Delivers 75th 777 to Emirates

      SEATTLE, May 01, 2009 -- Boeing [NYSE: BA] yesterday delivered the 75th 777 commercial jetliner to Emirates. The Dubai-based carrier is one of the largest operators of Boeing's popular twin-aisle, long-haul airplane. Emirates is expected to become the world's largest 777 operator later this year.

      Emirates' newest 777, a Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range), departed Paine Field in Everett, Wash., yesterday on its ferry flight to Dubai International Airport in the United Arab Emirates. The airplane is pictured here taking off during flight tests last month.

          Boeing and Turkish Airlines Finalize Deal for Five 777- 300ERs

          ISTANBUL, May 06, 2009 -- The Boeing Company [NYSE: BA] and Turkish Airlines have signed an order for five Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes valued at $1.36 billion at current list prices. This is the first time Turkish Airlines has purchased new 777s directly from Boeing. The airline currently operates a fleet of 65 Boeing airplanes including Next-Generation 737s and leased 777-300ERs.

          "The 777-300ER will provide Turkish Airlines with exceptional fuel economy, efficiency and reliability, combined with unmatched levels of payload and range," said Aldo Basile, vice president of Sales for Europe, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "It will also help Turkey build on its position as a rapidly growing market of international importance."

          The Boeing 777-300ER is 19 percent lighter than its closest competitor, greatly reducing its fuel requirement. It produces 22 percent less carbon dioxide per seat and costs 20 percent less to operate per seat. The airplane can seat up to 365 passengers in a three-class configuration and has a maximum range of 7,930 nautical miles (14,685 km). The 777 family is the world's most successful twin-engine, twin-aisle airplane. Fifty-six customers around the world have ordered more than 1,100 777s.

          Turkish Airlines is one of the fastest growing and prosperous airlines in the world. It carries approximately 20 million passengers a year, with direct flights to 108 international and 33 domestic destinations. The airline was founded in 1933 with a fleet of five airplanes that carried a total of 28 passengers. The airline made its first domestic flight in 1933 and the first international flight in 1947.

          This order will be posted to the Boeing Orders and Deliveries Web site, http://active.boeing.com/commercial/orders/index.cfm, May 7.

                On my recent trip I was entertained by the contrails showing the airflow over the engine nacelle and wing of this Delta 777-200LR.

                The contrail from the engine nacelle strake followed this deeply curving path throughout the entire climb while the leading edge slats were extended. As the slats retracted the contrail remained until the very last instant when it fully retracted and "poof" it disappeared. Odd how the tiniest little gap under the slat altered the airflow so dramatically.



                Then much later in the climb there was a period where contrails formed along much of the wing. Interesting how it occurred mainly in certain regions.
