The freighter features General Electric GE90 engines, as well as extended and raked wingtips.

FedEx is the aircraft operator with the most Boeing 777F aircraft — standing at 12. The next leading aircraft operator is China Southern with 5. There are five other models of passenger aircraft — the Boeing 777-200, 777-200ER, 777-200LR, 777-300, and 777-300ER. Currently a total of 39 Boeing 777F aircraft exist, compared to 924 Boeing 777 aircraft of all models.

The 777 Freighter (777F) is an all-cargo version of the Boeing 777 twinjet, and shares features with the 777−200LR, with the same airframe, engines, and fuel capacity. The 777-200LR is the world’s longest-range airliner and holds the record for longest distance flown by an unrefueled commercial aircraft. On Nov. 9-10, 2005, a Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner set a new world record for distance traveled non-stop by a commercial jetliner. The 777-200LR set a record distance of 11,664 nautical miles (nmi) on a route traveling eastbound from Hong Kong to London (Heathrow). The flight lasted 22 hours and 42 minutes.


The freighter has a range of 4,900 nmi (9,070 km) at maximum payload, although greater range is possible if less cargo weight is carried.

With a maximum payload of 226,000 lb (103,000 kg), cargo capacity is similar to the 243,000 lb (110,000 kg) of the 747-200F.

As the aircraft promises improved operating economics compared to existing freighters, airlines have targeted the 777F as a replacement for older freighters including the 747-200F and MD-11F.

There are 3 million parts in a 777 provided by 500 suppliers from around the world.

A lightly loaded 777 (not a freighter) can accelerate from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in less than six seconds.
