Boeing Offering Increased Range Capability for Longer-Range 777 Airplanes

Boeing is offering airlines more range on its longer-range 777 passenger airplanes, and enhanced performance overall, thanks to engine efficiency improvements and design changes that reduce wind drag and the airplane's weight.

The enhancements for the Boeing 777-300ER (Extended Range), shown here, will become available during 2005's fourth quarter. They'll be offered on new airplanes and for retrofit on airplanes already in service.

Boeing is applying several of the enhancements to the 777-200LR (Longer Range) airplane currently under development.
