RE: 777, 787, 797,...and Then?

Assume 797 is basically a narrow-body version of the 787 (to replace 757s)

My guess is that Boeing will probably try to milk as much as they can from 737 747(if possible) 777 787 and 797 lines for the forseeable future.

RE: Could The 787 Put The 777 Out Of Business?

It does seem like Boeing has some degree of planned obsolescence with its airframe types, and is now dependent on two or three types of airliner.

707s get replaced by 757s.
757s and 727s get replaced by 737s

747s get replaced by 777s.
767s and 777-200s get replaced by 787s.
