Anyone know difference between 777-222LR, and ER?

Recommended Posts

I know ER is extended range, but i thought the ER model was specific for the 777-300.

 

I want to make sure that I am using the correct airplane profile in PFPX before starting anything, and in there they have the PMDG 777-200LR, but no ER...is LR just the regular 777-222?

 

I'm looking on planespotters.net to get a real registration number for an aircraft that I want to add into PFPX's aircraft database.

The most obvious diference from the outside between the 200ER and LR are the raked wingtips.

 

 

 

Developed alongside the -300ER, the -200LR features an increased MTOW and three optional auxiliary fuel tanks in the rear cargo hold.[175] Other new features include raked wingtips, redesigned main landing gear, and additional structural strengthening.[175] As with the -300ER and 777F, the -200LR is equipped with wingtip extensions of 12.8 ft (3.90 m).[175] The -200LR is powered by GE90-110B1 or GE90-115B turbofans.[92] The first -200LR was delivered to Pakistan International Airlines on February 26, 2006.[88][178] As of May 2016, eleven different -200LR customers have taken delivery of 59 aircraft, with no unfilled orders.[1] Airlines operated 55 of the -200LR variant as of July 2015.[9] The closest competing aircraft from Airbus was the A340-500HGW.[175]
