Emirates is currently the world's largest operator of the 777 and the only airline that operates all the variants of this aircraft. As Emirates continues to expand its global network, the 777 has played a central role as the carrier for its non-stop, long haul routes. In March 2012, Emirates received the 1000th 777 to roll out of Everett — the airline also launched its non-stop flight from Dubai to Seattle at the same time.

On 17 November, the first day of the 2013 Dubai Air Show, Emirates announced an order for 150 777Xs, in the process breaking a record for the single largest order for a new airplane from Emirates and the single largest airplane order ever in the world.
