Re: Rumour: 777X First Flight Likely Delayed to Year End Due GE9X Issues

So what level of improved fuel economy does the GE9x offer over the TrentXWB? Will it still be better than the Advance in 2025. As we're always pushed in work, a new technology is all very nice, but does it work better than what went before as otherwise no-one want to pay for it.

Some of the BA 77Es are currently quite dated in terms of cabin, but they are currently in the process of fitting a new cabin to these, so to the customer, a 20ish year old G-VIIX could seem a lot more modern than a 10 year old G-YMMX (the YMM series vary in age) I don't think the refits are done pu...
