Air Canada Business Class

Air Canada's business class section on our 777. Looks amazing.


*Airplanes 101* (See Airplanes 101 Set)

Name: Boeing 777-300

Manufacturer: Boeing (USA) .

Main Role: large capacity medium-very long range mainline jetliner

Basic design: Two engined twin aisle wide body mainline jetliner.

Capacity: Roughly 305-440passengers

Range: 9600km - 14.300km

First delivery date: 1995

Still in production in 2006: Yes

Easily confused for: 767-300, 767-400, 777-200,

Main identifying points: The tail cone and tail are probably the 777's best identifier.. the tail-cone comes to a vertically flat ending with the APU exhaust protruding out of the left side only. Also the 777 has sharply edged tail that's somewhat small in mass but tall for the plane's size. From the front you can see the fuselage is not oval like most airplanes but completely circular. There are no winglets on the 777-200 or -300 models. This plane flies with the largest engines of any airliner. The GE90s engine cone is as large as some airliner's fuselages in fact. Lastly another easy thing to spot that's unique to the 777 is the triple bogey landing gear... three sets of double wheels on each main undercarriage landing gear. Other than Russian aircraft all other long range planes only have double ones.

Examples of Main Operators (all models): Continental, Delta, United, American, British Airways, Japan Airlines, ANA, Aeromexico, Varig, Alitalia, KLM, Aeroflot, Austrian, Air France, Emirates, Ethiad, Saudi Arabian, Pakistan International, Singapore Airlines, Cathay Pacific, Korean Air, Thai Airways, Air New Zealand and many more. It's among the most popular long range high capacity airliners flying today.
