From Paris to Phuket and Muscat to Mumbai, the 777-200LR is leaving a lasting impression upon all who see, visit and learn more about the newest addition to the 777 family.

The 777-200LR Worldliner is the world’s longest-range commercial airplane and can connect virtually any two cities in the world. Currently in the final stages of its 24-city, five-continent world tour, the 777-200LR has hosted visits from numerous airline executives and staff members, government officials, and media representatives.

Across countries and cultures, the 777-200LR is creating an impression shared by all who visit it: new capabilities, comfort and opportunities for airlines and their passengers.

The current Worldliner tour is part of the 777-200LR flight-testing program. Once testing is completed, the first 777-200LR plane will be delivered to Pakistan International
Airlines, its launch customer.

Here’s a look at some of the encounters the airplane had during its world tour.

An up-close showing for a special customer

Pakistan International Airlines (PIA) will be the first customer to fly the longest-range commercial airliner in the world when the carrier takes delivery of the first airplane in early 2006.

Airline executives, pilots and staff received a first look at the Worldliner when the aircraft and its crew visited Pakistan recently during its world tour. Flying into Karachi, Pakistan, the Boeing team provided PIA executives with extensive capability briefings as well as tours of the plane and its signature interior. A highlight of the Worldliner tour was a demonstration flight for PIA executives and pilots; it traveled over the Himalayas, providing a spectacular backdrop for the new 777-200LR Worldliner.
