For ALL of you DOUBTERS who said: I made it up, or, it is not being considered by Boeing, or, how silly - the 777 is made ONLY for two engines. . .this one's for you!
For all of the newcomers, this stems off a topic a few days ago. It was titled "Choosing 777 over 747" by EA CO AS. We had a good size arguement whether or not Boeing was considering a 4-engined 777. People basically laughed at the very thought, and I said I'd find where I read it. . .so I have.
I have found the article that mentions the 777 w/ four engines: Air International JAN. 2 Vol. 62 No.1. p.22 under "New Projects."
It reads, "...Boeing has established a study programme called Large Airplane Product Development to cover ongoing work for a very large airliner to meet demand for a new high-capacity aircraft. Several alternative layouts and configurations are being considered, including enhanced 747 designs, an enlarged 777 with four engines, developments of the former four engined version of the McDonnell Douglas MD-12, and futuristic shapes involving blended wing-bodies..."

So what about Boeing will get a new B787 or B797 in the future? How is possible as for the new aircraft and new longer range with the passengers on the flight. Please let me know about anything to do. Thanks!!
