The -300ER (extended range) is the most popular variant of the already popular 777 model. As of Sept. 30, 2011, the 777-300ER had 543 orders; the 777 program (all models) has received a total of 1,288 orders and the program has a backlog of 325 orders. The 777-300ER has been ordered by 37 customers around the globe. Twenty-seven customers now operate the 777-300ER; 10 additional customers will take delivery of their first 777-300ERs through 2014.

The 777-300ER can be distinguished from earlier models by the raked wingtip. Along with the other two variants of the 777 program, the 777-200LR (long range) and the 777F (freighter), the 777-300ER are powered exclusively by the General Electric GE90-115BL engine, the world’s largest and most powerful commercial jet engine, producing 115,300 pounds (512 kn) of thrust. The diameter of each engine is equal to the fuselage of a Boeing 737 aircraft.
