The Boeing 777-200 is the first in a family of wide-body, twin-engine Boeing 777 or Triple Seven (T7) aircraft. The aircraft is intended for medium-long haul airlines.

At the end of 1989, Boeing Commercial Airplanes began designing an extended version of the Boeing 767 with a wingspan increased to 63,73 meters. When designing, the new aircraft received advanced technologies at that time, as well as a new design. In mid-October 1990, the project received the designation Boeing 777, which indicated the emergence of a new family. And the first modification was designated as 777-200.

During the construction of the Boeing 777-200, to lighten the airframe structure, the use of composite materials was widely used, which occupy about 10 percent of the weight of the entire structure.

Powerful turbojet engines with a high bypass ratio, Pratt & Whitney PW4074 with thrust of 329 kN each, were installed on the new airliner. Subsequently, Boeing 777-200 aircraft used General Electric GE90-75Bs engines with a thrust of 334 kN and Rolls-Royce Trent 875s engines with a similar thrust.

The Boeing 777-200, was the first Boeing passenger aircraft to be fitted with a fly-by-wire control system (FBW). The aircraft used avionics manufactured by Honeywell, which complies with the advanced computer data bus standard used in ARINC 629 avionics. Six multifunctional TFT displays are used to display all the necessary information about the flight and the status of onboard systems. The Boeing 777-200 was equipped with an aircraft collision warning system in the air - TCAS (Traffic alert and Collision Avoidance System). Today, according to ICAO standards, TCAS equipment must be installed on all aircraft designed to carry more than 19 passengers.

The first flight of the Boeing 777-200 aircraft took place on June 12, 1994. FAA and JAA certifications were received by the airliner on April 19, 1995. The first aircraft operator was the airline "United Airlines"Which received its first Triple Seven 15 May 1995 years.

The aircraft cabin in three class configurations has 305 passenger seats. With a two-class cabin layout, 400 passengers can be accommodated. With an economical cabin layout, the number of passenger seats is 440 seats.

On February 6, 1997, a Boeing 777-200ER was transferred to British Airways. This modification has a longer flight range compared to the Boeing 777-200, which is 14305 kilometers, against 9700 kilometers of the base model.

Also, the Boeing 777-200ER has become one of the best-selling twin-engine jet, passenger aircraft in the world. On the 2010 year, 415 units of this modification were delivered to more than thirty airlines. 

The main directions of Boeing 777-200 today are London - New York, Denver - Honolulu, Tokyo - San Francisco. And the main directions of Boeing 777-200ER are London - Los Angeles, Tokyo - Sydney, Chicago - Seoul.

 The main competitor for the Boeing 777-200 is a European airliner Airbus A330-300.
