Delta Air Lines Flight Miniatures 777-200LR
The Boeing 777-200LR was introduced to the Delta Airlines fleet in March of 2008, making Delta the first US airline to operate this aircraft type. In all, Delta received ten 777-200LRs in this first order to Boeing for the advanced aircraft. This model represents Delta’s tenth 777-200LR, Ship 7110, which was delivered to the airline on March 24, 2010. With a maximum operating range of 9,395 nautical miles (17,370 km), the 777-200LR has the longest range of any commercial airliner and can fly non-stop between nearly any two cities in the world. Of course, longer range means longer flights and Delta has raised the standards for travel comfort. The BusinessElite® class includes fully horizontal personal sleeper suites. Coach class offers next-generation, more comfortable seats, and every seat offers Delta’s on-demand entertainment system on larger screens. On November 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 (21,601 km) on a route traveling eastbound from Hong Kong to London (Heathrow). The flight lasted 22 hours and 42 minutes.
