I was just wondering why Boeing decided not to build the 777-100 which was a shorter aircraft and desgined for domestic services and also a direct replacement for the L1011s that were in the Delta and Continental fleets. they did get this direct replacement but it was in the form of the 767-400ER. My question is why did they not just stick with the 777-100? I mean both 777 and 767 were in service at this time? was it more about costs or time limits?
Any comments would be great
