The statement of bigger windows is often misleading. The inner window panel might be "larger" but the outer window will likely be the same dimensions as the 787.

Looking forward to seeing this plane in service. Hoping for at least an official Boeing Store house colours model some time soon too!

I am sure QR's AAB will threaten Boeing to buy A340s prior taking the B779X as he will not like the carpet that is installed.

I also wanna see what it will look like in person this 777-9 with the new wings, engines & the folding wing mechanism but other than that it's not much different than the 777-300ER... I also never understood why Boeing did away with the 5 main cabin doors on each side, perhaps to cramp more passengers in it but is it not against safety regulations...

So what is this thread about? Toilet seats and fantasy models???

I am still wondering why Boeing decided to give the B779 less range and power than the B77W currently has.

B77W: 512kn each -> 9010mi of range
B779: 470kn each -> 8759mi of range

Last order is almost two years ago.. The orders are:

- Lufthansa 20
- Etihad 17
- Cathay Pacific 21
- Emirates 115
- Qatar 50
- ANA Japan 20
-> 243 frames

I think we'll see the order book ramp up once we get a bit closer to EIS. The A350-1000 is shaping up nicely but the 779 is really the only upcoming aircraft that can replace 77W and 744 missions. The A351 is looking like it'll be a bit more efficient in general terms but it doesn't have the underbelly cargo capacity that certain carriers rely upon such as CX & EK (thus the already placed orders). I expect AF, BR, and KE all to place orders sooner rather than later. As for current big 77W operators skipping out, I have a tough time seeing SQ & BA finding a role for it.

the 779 will sell better when more airlines start putting their 77Ws into retirement. as the 77w still sells (and is still offered by Boeing) nobody is interested in the 779. when the 77W isn't available any more 779 orders will increase - at least when there are airlines who fly the 744 or the 77W (and they can afford the 779 as a replacement).

True, Airbus has understood where the advantadges of the T7 were and are, so let's compare the cargo volume in the LD3 format:

A35K (73,8m): 44 LD3
A3511 (proposed - 76m): 46 LD3

B778 (69,5m): 40 LD3
B779 (76,5m): 48 LD3
(B77W (73,9m): 44 LD3)

I left the A359 out of here as Boeing offers the B787-10 as a direct competitor to it and with the B77X we are talking about the top end of the line. This comparison shows that the A35K is absolutely identical to the B77W!! Airbus may focus on European and American customers where capactiy is not everythig and even a B77W may be too large (just look at the US).. This seems to apply to Asia as well where Airbus wanted to sell way more VLA to than they could. The B77X will be perfect for the ME3 - and this is reflected very well in the order book already - where size is a plus! I am wodering if Boeing offers too less with the B778. They only offer a ULH varaint that will replace the capabilities of the B77L and will be very expensive. To me it would have been wiser to produce another B778 variant with less range to replace the many B772. Airbus offers A350s to do that, but what does Boeing offer here? Look at the US3 - all have A350s on order and zero B77X!!!

I think what we'll see going forward is a fewer number of airlines operating the 779s but with large fleet numbers and more airlines operating the A351 with smaller fleet numbers. I'm excited to follow the testing and proving phase of the A350-1000, if the aircraft can truly match the numbers Airbus has projected that will be an astonishing achievement in terms of efficiency.
