Boeing 777-300

Boeing 777-300 is the second biggest passenger aircraft in its category in the world. According to official claims, the 777-300 has nearly the same passenger capacity and range capability as the 747-100/-200 models, but burns one third less fuel and has 40 per cent lower maintenance cost. Aviation experts cite that there is about 50000 cubic ft space in a Boeing 777-300 and that a lightly loaded aircraft can accelerate from zero to 96 kmph in less than 60 seconds — an engineering feat for a mammoth size.
