I was wondering, when the classic Boeing 777 production ended and replaced by Boeing 777X, what will they do with the old production line?

The old production line that is currently being used by the 777 classic production will be integrated into the new 777X line. Boeing will use the current 787 surge line for the first couple of years for the 777X production and then we will see the change over when 777X production ramps up.

I really have to wonder: has Boeing officially assigned the designations for the 777-8X and 777-9X? Will they use the designations 777-800LR and 777-900ER?

Boeing is dropping the -800/900 and going with -8 and -9. Just like they did on 787, 747, and with the 737MAX

Boeing took a big step forward today with the 777x Composite Wing Plant. The 1st of 3 large Autoclave was moved from the construction area at the base of the tower to the parking lot outside the 777x factory.

Boeing Completes 777X Firm Configuration

Milestone establishes basic airplane design; program on track for first delivery in 2020


EVERETT, Wash., Aug. 27, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Boeing (NYSE: BA) announced today the completion of the firm configuration milestone for the 777-9, the first member of the 777X family to be developed.

The Boeing 777X team reached this significant design milestone after working closely with airline customers and key suppliers to optimize the configuration of the new airplane.

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.

"It's great to see the airlines and industry team side-by-side with us as we achieve this important milestone," said Bob Feldmann, vice president and general manager of the 777X program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. "The team has followed a disciplined process to complete all of the requirements for this stage of the program."

The firm configuration milestone marks the completion of configuration trade studies required to finalize the airplane's capability and basic design. Wind tunnel test results, aerodynamic performance and structural loads are also evaluated to ensure the airplane meets requirements. This allows the 777X team to begin detailed design of parts, assemblies and other systems for the airplane. As detailed designs are completed and released, production can begin.

"The program is right where we want it to be," added Feldmann. "We have an airplane and production system that are on track and on schedule, and we remain laser focused on meeting our commitments to our customers."

The 777X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, with 12 percent lower fuel consumption and 10 percent lower operating costs than the competition. In addition, the 777X will bring cabin innovations and improved levels of passenger comfort.

The 777X program has received orders and commitments for 320 airplanes from six customers worldwide. Production is set to begin in 2017.

is it just me or the 777X seem to have 8 emergency exits instead of the usual 10 exits as seen on 77W/ 773? Given the longer and wider size and capacity of the 777X, I would have though it needs at least 10 exits!

Looks like San Francisco will see one less carrier using the 777...

Korean Air B777-300ER (reg. HL8218)

As from 1 November 2015, the airline will upgrade its Seoul-San Francisco service from the B777 (-200 and -300ER variants) to the B747-8I.

It will indeed won't have the overwing exits, giving it 8 full exits in total. It will have an effect on the maximum capacity, but that won't be an issue. The maximum capacity of the 300ER is 550, the max capacity of the -9 will be about 475 seats.

As there's currently only 2 airlines operating the 777-300 (non ER) with more then 500 seats and that are JAL (500) and ANA (514) with their domestic configured fleets. Other airlines with dense lay-outs on the 777-300ER have max. 468 seats (Air France), but usually it's around 450 (Air Canada, Air Austral). But most airlines have between 300 and 400 seats in their 777-300ERs. With ANA even going as low as 212 seats on their most spacious international lay-out.

It's clear that Boeing decided that the weight reduction was more important then the wishes of the few operators with a very dense lay-out. Just like Airbus decided with the A350-1000 which will also have just 8 exits, also giving it a maximum of 475 seats.

Boeing completes firm configuration for 777-9

Boeing has completed the firm configuration for the 777-9, its first variant under the 777X family, which is currently in the development stage.Despite being smaller than the four-engine Airbus A380, the 777-9 will be the largest twin-engine aircraft in the world. It can accommodate 400 to 425 passengers with a range of 7,600 nautical miles (nm) or 14,075km.
