What has become of the proposed 777-250ERX?
Is it still under study/consideration? Has it been silently cancelled?
For those of you that might not remember it: around November 2002, Boeing announced plans of a possible frame stretch for an aircraft 225ft long with a range of 8637mi, facilitated by the same GE90-11B1s which are (or perhaps, were) the powerplant for the 772LR as well. The general buzz-from-the-bees was that this model would be geared toward the USA carriers... none of whom felt they could justify the 773A/ER, but many of whom still needed something slightly larger than the 772 for transoceanic travel.
Anyone know anything recent about this proposal? Hamlet?
