On September 3 2015, Emirates received 3 Boeing 777 aircraft, 2 Boeing 777-300ER passenger aircraft and a Boeing 777F for cargo. With this delivery, Emirates reached a triple seven fleet consisting of 150 aircraft (147 in operational service), being the largest aircraft carrier B777, and Boeing celebrates the first triple delivery of B777 to a customer.
It is impressive how Emirates became the largest widebody aircraft operator (widebody aircraft - large passenger aircraft, with a fuselage diameter of over 5 meters), with 147 Boeing 777 aircraft in operational service (imagination exercise: imagine 150 B777 planes next to each other), but also an impressive fleet of Airbus A380.
