I was scanning through the Farnborough Website last night and noticed that Boeing is not displaying any of it's triple 7 models. I would have thought that the airshow would have been an excellent opportunity to display the latest -the 777-300ER, as I think it outshines it's direct competitor the A340-500/500 model in every respect, a remarkable achievement given the absence of massive state subsidies afforded Airbus!

The two 777-300ERs which they demonstrated and tested last year are now delivered to JAL, all 484 777s built including the prototype are now in service with airlines. I guess it makes more money selling the plane to an airline then keeping it to show around while their likely customers already know how it looks like.

nobody has ever died from hard work, but why take the risk?

773ER is not a direct competitor to the A345

Too expensive I imagine.
And while getting a follow on with EK for some more birds, it will likely be embarrassing to have it sitting there when VS goes for the 340-600.....(which I hope doesn't happen).
