1000. Boeing 777 verkauft<br /> On 29 August, Boeing announced that an order from Brazil's TAM Airlines for four additional 777-300ERs brings to 1,003 the number of 777s ordered since the first order of the popular widebody in 1990.
The announcement also means that, to date in 2007, Boeing has received orders for 100 of the popular 777s. "TAM's recent orders confirm airline preference for the 777 family which commands more than a 65 percent market share in its category because of its lower operating costs, passenger pleasing cabin and unmatched reliability, " said Larry Loftis, vice president, Boeing 777 Program. "We have continually enhanced and improved the performance of the 777 family of airplanes. Today, we have grown that family to include two, new, longer range 777s and a freighter version that will enter service in the fourth quarter of 2008."
