Singapore Airlines Receives Its First 777-300ERs

Airliners Feature New Interior Configuration

Boeing and Singapore Airlines celebrated the deliveries of the first two 777-300ER (Extended Range) jetliners for Singapore Airlines Wednesday. The 777s also feature the airline's new interior configuration for its 777 fleet.

Singapore Airlines Chief Executive Officer Chew Choon Seng joined Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Scott Carson and GE Aviation Vice President of Sales Roger Seager in a signing ceremony in front of two of the airline's new 777-300ERs, parked nose-to-nose at the Everett, WA delivery center.

Singapore Airlines has ordered a total of 19 Boeing 777-300ERs, which feature 35-inch-wide seats with 23-inch LCD video screens in the first-class cabin and 30-inch-wide seats with 15-inch LCD screens in business class, as well as increased leg and knee room in economy class, with seat-back screens larger than 10 inches diagonally measured.

The new interior configuration was originally set to debut in the carrier's A380s... but with deliveries of that mammoth plane delayed due to wiring issues, Boeing was able to claim that distinction.

"Our delivery today provides an opportunity for Boeing to honor Singapore Airlines as an ideal example of the strength of the 777," said Carson. "These airplanes symbolize the great relationship that we share with Singapore Airlines."

With today's deliveries, Singapore Airlines now operates 60 777s, the largest 777 fleet in the world. In addition, 17 more 777-300ERs remain to be delivered. The aircraft delivered today will be added to the airline's fleet of 12 777-300s, 31 777-200s, 15 777-200ERs and 25 747-400s.

The 777-300ER utilizes the world's most powerful commercial jet engine, GE's GE90-115B. In service, the GE90-115B engines have demonstrated superior reliability and extremely low fuel burn with the 777-300ER.
