They see me floating🎶 | 777-300er doesn’t want to land

Kind of a crappy landing into Honolulu after a 6 hour flight from Denver. Luckily it didn’t end badly (it would have suck to since it was on expert). Winds were jumping from 10 knots to 25. I have more of a question though. What is the landing speed for the 777 family? I had a hard time trying to find anything on the community so I figured I’d just ask.

Here is me trying to be a Grade 5 pilot lol.

When it’s high winds I usually land with flaps 25 and a speed around 150 kts

I also had a bad landing with some winds at Honolulu when coming in from Kuala Lumpur

Approach speed of B777 family in IF, especially B77W, is about 5 kts off. You can read more about it here:

That explains why the IAS was showing 110 when I finally touched down

Yeah the -300ER will float for days. Especially when light, you can see IAS of 125-130kts. Pitch is very sensitive.
