I know why he is calling it revolutionary. It is because the press has told him that (and Boeing told them that) and he belives it, no problem though, I belived it also until I checked into the subject. The 777 was the first airliner fully designed by computer (thats why the press calls it revolutionary). But, planes were being designed on computers way before that (anybody heard of the F-117?). But that is partly because Boeing waited until computer tech had advanced enough to be able to do that. MD and Airbus just designed their 300 seat class aircraft differently. They both had parts designed on computers, but not the whole thing.
I agree with CX747 and Cool Cat IIIc. The 777 was designed in a more advanced way, but it is not revolutionary, the revolutionary part is just a marketing a press gimic that has fooled a lot of us. Planes are only revolutionary if they offer great advances in performance, economy, or even a whole new way of travel, and permanently changes the way that air travel is.
PLEASE DON'T TAKE THIS IN A BAD WAY, PLEASE!!!
