The link speaks for itself but I'm very curious of what the numbers/specs will be.

Can't wait to see that bird fly for the first time! We're so blessed to live in an era where so many new and cool aircraft are rolling down the lines. 787, A350, A320neo, 737max, C Series, and many others are coming to life all around us! Next up, 777X!

From the linked article:

Quote:
The 777X family includes the 777-8 and the 777-9 – both designed to respond to market needs and customer preferences. The 777-8 and 777-9 provide significant range, payload and fuel burn advantages compared to the A350.

I think we'll have to take that with a pinch of salt!

I imagine the main customers were the ME3, but I wonder if they had more input that someone like BA/AF.

Fuel burn advantage? Yes. Better range? Depends of what you are comparing (778X vs A359LR advantage likely 777X, 779X vs A350-1000, who knows). Better payload? No, I suspect most people including Airbus would admit the 777X is likely to be better there. It is whether the extra payload and the tradeoffs that it brings is necessary for most operators.

Even there, it would only be in per-seat as I am confident the A350 will have lower trip fuel burn.

LH has 30 firm and 34 options so I have to presume they provided valued input, and some would say they are like BA/AF and less like the ME3.

The key word in the press release was 'significant' fuel burn/range advantages, I can believe the 778 and 779 will have better payload. But as Stitch says, it is very unlikely that the 777X will have a lower trip fuel burn, and I don't think the advantage in per-seat fuel burn is going to be significantly higher. Trip fuel burn is the measure by which the A380 is called a gas-guzzler, so I don't think Boeing can really call any huge advantage on the 777X in terms of fuel burn.

The 777X better have a significant advantage as its EIS is 5 years after the A350. Engine technology continues to improve as is the use of composites and wing design. The 777X having somewhat of a fuel burn advantage on a per seat basis doesn’t say anything bad about the A350, it is just newer technology. It is similar to a 787 v A350. The A350 undoubtedly has significant advantages inherent from newer technology since its EIS was almost four years after the 787.

Quoting PacificBeach (Reply 11):

LH's order to date is 20 firm per Boeing's O&D site (believed to be a conversion of their 20 747-8 purchase rights), but LH's press releases stated they ordered 37, so the belief is that they will firm more up in due time.

Quoting LTU932 (Reply 14):
Question: I noticed the 777-9 has no overwing exit like the 77W has today. How will that impact passenger capacity?

The 777-9 does appear to have what looks like a Type III exit between Doors 3 and 4, so that should peg the Exit Limit at 475 - 75 below the 777-300 families 550.

Those autoclaves are humongous. Thank you for posting images.

In the video, two things strike me: the pared down wing to body fairings, and the size of the engines - they dominate the front view.

Because it's what PROVENLY WORKS BEST for the overwhelming majority of applications... so they went with it.

I've never understood the aversion to that, masked as "lack of diversity."
I mean, we don't see biplanes, mainline props, MLG ahead of a tail wheel, etc etc etc anymore... and no one whines about that lack of diverity.

Why are AvGeeks so fixated on number of engines? It's never made sense to me.

The simple fact is that we are unlikely to ever see another new airliner (at least in the foreseeable future) with anything other than two engines. One engine is off the table, for obvious reasons. And the fewest engines you can get away with is the most efficient way to go, and with the ability of engine makers to make huge engines that are incredibly reliable the days of 3 and 4 engined airliners is over. The airport infrastructure cannot cope with an airliner that would require 3 or 4 120,000 lb thrust engines, and so there is no likelihood of a super whale jet with 1000+ passengers.

Worth watching for the folding wingtips. That video highlights their concept. In my opinion, folding wingtips on airliners is an enabling technology for a whole new generation of aircraft with wider wingspans. I would be surprised if Boeing's "MOM" plane didn't have them.

The exception would be a BWB (flying wing). The lack of a rudder makes them tw0 unstable in an engine out with only one engine. Boeing is proposing 3 engines, Northrop 4. I've seen 3 and 4 engine concepts from Airbus. But the efficiency of a BWB will result in a return to multi-engine airlines.

I assume you know the plan is for Dassault's Falcon 9X will be a trijet.

~40 airlines are operating the best selling large aircraft model in history (773/W) so I do think airlines will know whether or not they can fill it. ~320 orders tells us a lot.

I personally welcome flying far out on the wing for a BWB flight but I am not positive the average consumer will. Steep turns on final with that kind of change will be hard to adjust to for most I believe. I love the design aspects but I wonder how catering/average passenger happiness works. I love the idea but can't envision it practically.

What if it ends up on its back, or (somewhat gingerly) its side (somehow)?

And they also dropped the "hundred" series. I don't think the new variants will be called 777-800 and 900 Series, what Boeing has always done up until recently with the introduction of the 747-8, the 787-8/9/10 and the 737-7/8/9MAX. And I don't think they will continue to use the customer codes.

Thanks for posting these JO tweets. Very interesting to see these comparisons. Those engines look massive.

It seems they dropped the X in the narrative and on the front of the plane but if you look at the top pictures you see that they added the X on this version to the Vert Stab and the bottom of the airplane. We are not done with it yet, but I think they will go that direction.

I was hoping Boeing was going to call it 777-800LR and 777-900ER....

What's the point though, as they're already differentiated by their unique frames.

The 777-200LR is still on the original frame as the 777-200 that first flew in 1994. The "LR" tag is needed to differentiate.

There's no 778A. Nor even an -ER.
So what's the point of tacking -LR onto it?
I myself, suspect a more prosaic motive... ~Thranduil

Actually, based on their newest renderings, the extra, smaller doors don't exist anymore.
