The 777 is doing fine after three years of performance. Most if not all the airlines are satisfied with the performance they have received from their machines. Cathay Pacific is the only complaint I have heard about. They are not sure if the 777-200 fits their fleet plan. They love the 777-300 though.

A week or so ago, I started a thread on BA's 777 engine selection, and one respondent said the GE90's fuel consumption was higher than expected. To be
fair, this was just one answer, and I would also be interested in details.
I talked with a United engineer last Nov. and he said the aircraft was fine. Most
of the problems they had were in the cabin -- the entertainment system and the seats. The old seats were made in France by Sicma and have been replaced by
designs by Rumbold, a British company. (not meaning to start an international incident).
