By 2027, Aviation Week predicts 1,955 Boeing 777 aircraft will be in service.
The Middle East Will Be Home To Largest 777 Fleet
The region with the highest number of the aircraft in service over the next 10 years is the Middle East, which will be home to 816 777s by 2027. The largest operator in the Middle East at present is Emirates, which flies 146 777 family aircraft.

Component Demand Will Also Be Strong
Parts for the 777 will account for 25% of the $112.2 billion MRO spend.
