The first aircraft is currently completing flight testing in Everett and will be registered as N2331U. A source familiar with the 777-300ER says that it will be delivered to United in a few weeks, however this has not been confirmed by the airline.

In addition, N2331U completed its C1 (Customer) flight on Wednesday.
