RE: 777X Draws Interest From BA And ET

It already seems clear that the 777X is going to put the 747/8 out of business. It's no-one's fault - just a matter of increased engine power/reliability, now increasingly-accepted ETOPS-wise. The only remaining question appears to be whether the 'big twins' will put the A380 out of business as well?
