About Commercial Airplanes

Boeing Commercial Airplanes, a business unit of The Boeing Company, is committed to being the leader in commercial aviation by offering airplanes and services that deliver superior design, efficiency and value to customers around the world. There are more than 13,000 Boeing commercial jetliners in service*, flying passengers and freight more efficiently than competing models in the market.

Boeing traces its history to aviation pioneer William Boeing who, in 1916, built the company’s first airplane, a seaplane for two with a range of 320 nautical miles (515 km). Since then, Boeing has defined the modern jetliner and introduced the twin-aisle cabin, the glass cockpit and countless other innovations. Today, Boeing Commercial Airplanes offers a family of technologically advanced airplanes, including one that can seat more than 500 and another that boasts the longest range in the world, at more than 9,300 nautical miles (14,966 km).

Boeing Commercial Airplanes employs more than 80,000 people under the leadership of President and CEO Ray Conner. The business unit’s revenue in 2012 was $49.1 billion.

With headquarters in the Puget Sound region of Washington state, Boeing Commercial Airplanes has operations in more than a dozen cities and countries. The business unit comprises five airplane programs, VIP-derivative airplanes, extensive fabrication and assembly facilities and a global customer support organization.

The Boeing 777 family is a complete family of jetliners that is preferred by passengers and airlines around the world. The market leading 777 family consists of five passenger models, with the ability to fly point to point nonstop to bypass crowded and busy hub airports, and a freighter model.

The 777 seats from 301 to 368 passengers in a three class configuration with a range capability of 5,240 nautical miles (9,700 km) to 9,395 nautical miles (17,395 km). The 777 is available in six models: the 777-200, 777-200ER (Extended Range), a larger 777-300, two new longer range models, the 777-300ER and 777-200LR Worldliner (the world’s longest range commercial airplane) and the Boeing 777 Freighter.

The market driven design of the 777 ensures the airplane responds to market needs and customer preferences. The result is a family of airplanes distinguished by fuel efficiency, spacious cabin interior, range capability, commonality and reliability.
