via timesofindia.indiatimes.com

Fast-moving Pakistan has stolen a march on India in civil aviation by announcing the deployment of the world’s longest range commercial airplane, the Boeing 777-200LR Worldliner, which can fly non-stop from the United States to virtually any city in Asia. The plane was unveiled on Tuesday at the Boeing plant in Everett, Washington, before a large crowd of employees, airline reps, suppliers and officials. The very first aircraft will be delivered to Pakistan International Airlines in January 2006. PIA will introduce it for direct, non-stop flights between Houston and Karachi in March 2006.
