Boeing 767-400 Vs. Boeing 777

Tue Feb 08, 2000 8:54 am

Hi all.
Here's a topic where you can post your opinion- which is better, the 764 or Boeing 777? Any version of 777 counts, but I think the 764 is the only aircraft that can truly be compared to the 777. The 777-300 has a range of 6700 miles, while the 764 has a range of 6400 miles. Boeing says the 777 has excellent comfort, but by the pictures it doesn't look so. The middle seats look cramped. Personally I have, and always will, favor the 757/767 family over any other airliner. I LOVE the 764 and would choose it anyday over the 777, but that's just my opinion. What's yours?

Now, aren't you glad this isn't a Boeing vs. Airbus post?

You can't compare the two. There different, The 777 competes with the A340 while the 767-400 competes with the A330.

The 777 is a marvelous aircraft and I would much rather be on it than a 767 on a long haul flight. The cabin is way more spacious seeing that it is much wider than the 767.

767 ist das lange Elend, ein Haufen Scheisse. 777 ist sowieso das Letzte, ein Dreck am Ende.

The only base for comparison I have is pictures I've seen of the 777 interior and having flown aboard 767-200s and -300s. However, from what I've heard, the 767-400 layout would be much roomier than the 777. I'd take 2-3-2 seating over 2-5-2 or 3-4-3 any day. But I've yet to fly in a 777. I've heard they are extremely powerful, quiet aircraft, and eclipse just about everything out there.

Side note - has the 767-400 even entered service yet?

i love the 767.

ever been on an american 767 with the new seats. they are the best. nothing beats a 2-2-2 layout in buisness class. i hate that 2-3-2 crap, the middle seat sucks. especially when seats are reclined and foot rests are up. try going to the bath room when the when everyone around u is asleep and u are traped by footrests and seat backs
