Total 777 orders = 364 (310 for B772 (+-220 are IGW's) and 54 for B773)
Delivered 777 = 111 (60 B777 and 51 B777IGW's) as of Jan-98
Besides airlines may still change between the different 777. Just think at
DL and AA with their 'exclusive-supplier-deal-which-doesn't-exist'. Those
contracts are quite flexible, the customer is always getting what he needs,
even if at the time he made the order he was 'wrong'.

It all depends on their needs, if you want to be more flexible and have the
extra money you go for the IGW.
