Introduction

The Boeing 777-200 was the first model of the 777 family. At the beginnings of the 777 programm it was known as the 777-200A. The start of the 777 program was marked by a deal between Boeing and United Airlines in October 1990. This act was underlined by a handwritten order for 16 –200As on the 15th October 1990. Only two weeks later the Boeing board gave the OK for starting the 777 program.
The first rollout of the –200 was on the 9th April 1994, where 100.000 guests were present in Seattle at the Boeing Production Line.

First Flight, Test Programm and Certification

The first Pratt & Whitney powered 200A made its Maiden Flight on the 12th June 1994.
This flight lasted 3h48min and the test-pilots already tested an “inflight-engine-shutdown-recovery”.
The duration of the test program was eleven months.
During this program the nine (9) 777s were involved and they’ve flown 4.900 flights and around 7.000 flight hours were logged. The program was so big, because Boeing wanted to sell the 777 with an “180min-ETOPS”-certification out-of-the-box. This means, that Boeing wanted to hae the 777 already ETOPS certificated from day one in service. And no long lasting certification program, during the first months of the 777 in service with the airline-customers. The certification for the 777-200A was received by Boeing on the 19th April 1995.
The General Electric-powered 200A started its test program in February 1995, with a 5h20min long flight. However, the certification was received in November 1995 six weeks after the original planned date.
The Rolls Royce-powered 200A began its test program in May 1995, with its maiden flight on the 26th the same month. The RR-powered 777 received its certification 3 month before the planned date.

Delivery, 1st commercial flight

The first ever 777 was delivered to United Airlines during a big party at Boeing on the 17th May 1995.
Not even a month later United introduced the 777 into its flight network, with the first ever commercial flight of a 777, from London-Heathrow to Washington-Dulles on the 7th June 1995. Another two United 777s made their inaugral flights the same day from ORD to FRA and from IAD to DEN.
