Today marks the 100th day of Boeing 777-300ER operations on the Emirates Airlines Dubai to Dublin route, so far 36 different aircraft have been used on the route including newly delivered aircraft as the airline continues to grow it's global route network. Emirates Airlines is the largest global operator of the Boeing 777 aircraft.

The Dublin route launch has been one of the most successful in the history of the airline with load factors in excess of 90% lead to the annoucement to upgrade to route a Boeing 777-300ER effective 1st July just three weeks after commencing the route on  9th January with a 52% increase in capacity, however such was the strong demand on the route the carrier accelerated the introduction of the Boeing 777-300ER on the route from the 1st  July to 1st May.

The Emirates Airlines VP Commerical Operations Europe & Russian Federation Salem Obaidall stated "Dublin is exceeding our expectations much faster than was predicted and we need more seats to satisfy demand, a bigger aircraft means more good news for the Irish economy. We can bring extra visitors to the country and carry additional cargo" (Emirates Airlines PR 30th January).

On Saturday 5th May saw Boeing's 1000th Boeing 777 A6-EGO visit Dublin operating Emirates Airlines Dubai - Dublin service (EK161/162) just five days after the service was upgraded from Airbus A330-200  to Boeing 777-300. The aircraft was first flown on 6th March 2012 and delivered to the Dubai based airline on 20th March 2012 construction number 35598/1000, the aircraft is decorated with large "1000th 777" titles (Elevationair)
