Who's aircraft are you referring to, AQ737? If Midway, then don't hold your breath. JI is now a subsidiary of US Airways and has suspended their operations and returned their 6 737-700 aircraft to the lessor. It's a shame that we won't see JI's great yellow livery any longer.

It is my understanding that the 777 was designed from the ground up, three-dimensionally, and completely on computers. Besides, Boeing didn't acquire the McDonnell Douglas corporation until August 1997! The answer is no, the 777 was not derived from the MD11.
