That's picture real or just ilustration?? Yuhhuuu I think Boeing need to think about folded wingtips like that's so the wingspan not really a trouble for parking gate..

I think these folded wingtips show a trend in the industry, the airplanes will get larger and larger (+potential launch of the a380-900), we also see more and more collisions between aircrafts on the ground.
As these structures are made to stay for decades, every new project of airport should take these potential changes into account and maybe think about making larger paths and terminals.

Not much chance of seeing winglets on a new Boeing long haul airliner anymore. Apparently the raked wingtips are more efficient over long distances.

Folding wing tips on aircraft would be the equivalent of a more subdued version of the wing tips, which I personally find as a bit intriguing since it'll mean airlines will not have the opportunity to paint their airline logo on the wing tips of Boeing 777 aircraft...

True. The best winglets in my opinion has to be the MD11s. For some reason that light at the end of the winglet always appealed to me. Its sad boeing doesn't like lights anymore...

Now Boeing thinks alot too reduce more fuelburn but without stretch the wing size..

I don't understand all these messages about sadness for the winglets, the 777 never had anyway.

Sure... but I sense that adding a little wing tip would be really helpful, not only to reduce fuel consumption, but also to improve its range. On top of it, I sense that the next generation 777s would also allow ultra long-haul flights that can outpace its current ultra long-haul champion, the B777-200LR: the only thing is, what is an optimal combination of ultra long-haul flights with a large passenger load (similar to what a B777-300ER can do) that will not only make it more fuel efficient, but also allow greater flexibility between flights at the same time?

I wonder how long does it take to manufacture Boeing 777-300ER? Garuda is set to receive their first Boeing 777-300ER this July, but somehow, I haven't heard any news about their construction yet.

That's about 3 months. So I suppose, the progress will began sometime in May, or late April at its earliest.

Some time ago, there was a plan to take the type which was originally ordered by Air India. (Air India postponed the order at that time). But when the company took the airplane, Garuda had to postpone their order.

To ensure the next generation 777's (-8X and -9X) have increased payload and range capabilities, Boeing needs to increase the wingspan. At the same time, however, they want to maintain the aircraft's ICAO Cat E rating; meaning that the wingspan cannot exceed 65m otherwise A380 (Cat F) stands would have to be used. Hence, the folding wing tips.
