It's not certain if all of these will be delivered.

The 777-200 and the 777-300, both non ER are not for sale and in production anymore. Instead Boeing offers the ER variants of both version with de-rated engines for airlines that don't want to use the Extra Range. Like the -200ERs that ANA took delivery of last year that are used for domestic services.
From the same report is now official that AA has converted their 5 open orders for the -200ER to the -300ER. AA will now operate a total of 20 777-300ERs, they already took delivery of 4.

And ALC placed a new order for 10 777-300ERs.

It looks like the 777X will be launched in the near future.

Quote:
Boeing Nears Authority To Offer 777X

Boeing’s board of directors is expected to decide as early as its next meeting in April whether to give the Commercial Airplanes division authority to offer the proposed 777X derivative to airlines.

The milestone move, if confirmed, puts Boeing at the start of a six-year development track culminating with the entry into service of the first of two new 777 family members in 2019. The extended twinjet series will include a 777-8X, sized to succeed today’s 777-300ER, and a larger 777-9X which opens up new territory in the 400-plus seat, long range market.

Boeing Seeks to Move Forward With New 777

Boeing has asked at least three airlines—Emirates, International Consolidated Airlines Group SA and Japan Airlines Co. to become launch customers for the jet subject to the board's approval and the completion of other details, the people said.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000...j_nview_latest

Other possible launch customers that are named are Lufthansa, ALC and ANA.


It's not yet clear what the final engine choice will be and how much new technology will be used on other parts of the plane, but there are some hints.
Quote:
Boeing Close to Approving 777X

Prior to seeking board approval, Boeing needs to make one crucial decision: whether to offer the new aircraft with a choice of engines. Currently, the long-range 777-200LR and 777-300ER, which account for almost all 777 sales, are powered by GE engines under a sole-source agreement dating back to 1999.

Boeing plans to use new technologies to cut fuel consumption by as much as 20%. These include adding lightweight carbon-composite wings and more fuel-efficient engines.

Hope that Boeing have learned from its mistakes in launching 787 and won't repeat them again.

fix

The 747-8 is a more appropriate comparison here, since that was also just an upgrade of the 747-400 that turned out to be a bit more complex then expected also resulting in a big delay.

The 787 is a completely new plane, that's something completely different.

Well, I was referring to the "battery problem" that made all Dreamliners grounded.

I hope this is not out of topic. I wonder which Boeing 777 operator that currently held the title as the best airline in therm of cabin service?

You mean like, overall or specific only to the 777?

SQ is always up there in terms of Business and Economy where they are still 9 abreast. I am booked on BA179/182 to/from JFK in May. I am hoping it will be a 77W though 77E's are scheduled on some days. An upgrade to World Traveler Plus would be nice.

Lufthansa orders two more A380s (+100 A320s (including 70 neos) and
6 77W for SWISS).

So the SWISS will have their first Boeing 777-300ER?

Interestingly enough I love American Airlines service on their 777-200's. Only other long haul I've tried is Iberia, U.S. Airways, United, Cathay Pacific and Tiger Airways. U.S. Airways wasn't that great though.

Whoa, wait a minute: B777-300ERs for Swiss? What aircraft type will be retired if those will be used, the A340-300s or older A330s?

What's the possibility though of Tiger operating such long-haul flights as a LCC? I mean, there's AirAsia X and Cebu Pacific with their A330s, and Scoot with the B772s.

The a340s, they have no near term plans to replace the a330s, but the economics of an a340s isn't great and they have been in need of larger aircraft for their heavier routes since the company reorganized. I wouldn't suprised to see them hold off on replacing all of their a340s until the 777-9 becomes available since they had at one point contemplated 747-8i's.

Doubt it will happen. Tiger have ruled out long haul flights and said that they will only fly to places that are 5 hours away or less from SIN as these routes are more profitable
