I am curious though, what part is outperforming its expectation? Did they manage to achieve an OEW that's lighter than expected? or wings aerodynamics maybe?

Pure guessing, but we know both the A380 and 787 had better aerodynamics than first-envisioned. Weight would also be a logical thought as I could envision the wings being lighter and/or the new automated riveting system for the fuselage might have helped.

They cannot send B777X to India anyway, they are already over their BASA limits when they replaced 773s with 77Ws. Jet Airways already filed a complaint.

Paaah! One suitcase full of 2000 rupee notes should settle those issues! In India/Pakistan, as PP famously said, problems like these will be settled on a (suit)case by (suit)case basis! :P

But why send a brand new 77X when there are decade old 77W's available to service these coolie routes?

No surprise, EK was involved very much in the 777X program.

At least the news confirms that LH won't be the first airline to operate the type.
What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.
