Boeing 777 Family


Boeing 777 Family

The first Boeing 777 series aircraft delivered to Oryx in 1998, a Boeing 777-200ER registered A7-DHA, was the flagship of Oryx Airways until the introduction of the Airbus A380 in 2016. The airline has operated three different models of the 777 family, the -300ER, -200ER and -200LR. While the -200LR was completely phased out in 2019 after the introduction of the Airbus A350, it operated some of Oryx's longest routes to New Zealand and Australia. The -200ER is currently being phased out in favor of the 787 series, but the -300ER remains a passenger favourite to this day.

777 series aircraft currently operating for Oryx:
777-2Q7ER: 5
777-3Q7ER: 24

The airline has placed orders for 30 777X series aircraft with options for a further 15.



    Nice

    Looks nice, but I'm not sure the A359 would be a good replacement for the 77L...it just doesn't have enough range or performance, look at the issues Delta's having with it's South African route...

    The 7,850nm between Doha and Auckland fits just into the range of the A350-900, but it would be no problem for an A350-1000 or -900ULR which seem to be doing fine on ultra long haul routes with SG and CX.
