For all you Boeing 777 fans out there do you think that boeing will continue to advance the 777 like there doing with their boeing 737(Next Generation) or do you think that they will replace it with another type of aircraft. Hopefully the Y3 project will be another model of the 777, mabye the 773LR OR the 777-8 with composit features like the 787. just wonders.

your thoughts on this.

I think that once the B748 is done, Boeing will turn to do a "B778" version - improving the B777 to be consistent with the B787/B748 combo. If they start that project in 2009, they would still have plenty of time produce an effective spoiler for the A350 by the time of its EIS.

The Y3 is quite a bit further off - development starting only once the B737RS is done by 2013/2014 - probably meaning an entry into service date around 2020. As the successor to the B773 and the B748, that aircraft would have to offer the efficiency of a twin, scalability from the B773 on up to the B748, and adaptability to be both a great freighter and a great passenger airliner. If that is possible, I am imagining that it will look something like a modernized twin-engined B747. Airbus had better recoup their A380 investment before 2020.

Wasn't the 787-10 possibly replacing 772?

Quoting EHHO (Reply 2):

Yes, the 787-10 will replace the 777-200ER and, in some cases, the 777-200LR and the 777-300ER.

I expect we'll continue to see small evolutionary improvements in the 777 for a while as low-cost opportunities arise. However, the main thrust in the mid-size sector will be the 787. We may see additional future 787 models including 787-8ER, 787-9ER, 787-10ER, 787-11, and 787F. All except the 787-8ER would require major undercarriage development.
