EVERETT, Wash., Oct. 29, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing and Emirates Airline are celebrating the delivery of the airline's 100th 777-300ER (Extended Range), marking another milestone in a partnership that began over two decades ago when the Dubai-based airline ordered its first 777.
With this delivery, Emirates will have 142 777s in operation and is the only airline in the world to operate all the 777 variants. With a current direct backlog of 51 777-300ERs, the 777 also comprises the largest part of Emirates' 213-strong fleet.
