RE: Customers Press Boeing To Make Early 787-10 Dec (by Widebodyphotog Feb 5 2006 in Civil Aviation)#ID2588917

Within this thread were some postings on possible upgrades to the 777-200ER. Does Widebodyphotog or any other list member have any new information on this topic?

I imagine the engines and structure are about as efficient as they can be (for the most part), and while raked wingtips might help a bit, I imagine Boeing or some aftermarket supplier would already have developed them by now if the gains were significant.

You will eventually see the importation of 787 technology across the entire Boeing line, including an eventual 777 replacement.

Boeing has stated in the past that they could at least incorporate 787 engine technology to the 777 line when the time comes.

Aviation Partners believes the blended winglet is valuable on the original 777 models, but are focusing their R&D on the more lucrative narrowbody jets and 767s, since there are far, far, far more of them out there.

777s are down the list, but they will likely certified a blended winglet at some point in the future if enough customers demand it.

I still wonder, why don't they put the raked wingtips on the 772ER? Is there a reason why people might want to go for the APB blended winglets and not for the rakes on the 772ER?
