RE: The Widest Wide Body?

I believe the proper "cabin width" ranking should be like this:

1. Airbus A380
2. Boeing 747
3. Boeing 777
4. McDonnel Douglas MD-11/DC-10
5. Lockheed L1011
6. Boeing 7E7
7. Airbus A300/A310/A330/A340
8. Boeing 767

RE: 772LR Gets ~ANOTHER~ Range/payload Boost

Is this new range increase due to a MTOW increase, a minor redesign, or somethign else? (since this applies to "latter units" of the 773ER)

Yes, it was around 9:30 am - so you are probably right about it being a DC-8-70. (I was driving at the time so I could not stop and get a good look at it)
