Just realize that Gulf Air used to operate Boeing 777. In fact it was the Boeing 777-300ER version. They too had excellent interior design. I wonder what happened to those former Gulf Air Boeing 777?

Gulf Air leased them from Jet Airways, when they cut the deal short within the year they were returned to Jet Airways.

Jet Airways continued to operate some of them, others were leased to Thai but where later returned back to Jet.

GF has one of the sleekest looking schemes out there today & was one of, if not the best looking schemes on the B77W

Anyone knows if 777X will get a new nose? 777 is such a beautiful craft, but the 767's nose looks ridiculous on it. It totally ruins the front. I am not sure why Boeing did that, seems a like a dumb idea. Surely a nose not optimized for the plane would carry at least some penatly.

Maybe, But I believe 777X will go for Winglet option.

Only thing remains compared to Airbus series

The current design of the 777X will keep the current 777 nose. But who knows, they might change it to a 787 style nose later in the development. But again, for now there's no change planned for the nose.

I'm doubtful if they will ever change the nose design.

If anyone wants Boeing 787-style nose for large, long range aircraft, they should go for Boeing 787-9 or Airbus A350

Sucks. The hack job of a nose is the only thing I hate about the 777.

Say again? What's there to hate about the B777??? The aircraft would have to be one of the most successful twins ever designed & built by Boeing...

ANA signs for 20 777-9x

http://www.reuters.com/article/2014/...A2Q0B720140327

ANA orders 70 planes including 20 Boeing 777-9Xs

(Reuters) - Japan's ANA (9202.T) placed its biggest ever order of 70 new planes, including 20 Boeing (BA.N) 777-9X wide-body jets in a move bringing relief to the U.S. planemaker which lost a major Japan Airlines (9201.T) order to rival Airbus last year.

ANA's 1.7 trillion yen ($16.62 billion) order includes six Boeing 777 aircraft and 14 medium-sized Boeing 787-9 aircraft, as well as 30 single-aisle jets from Airbus' (AIR.PA) A320 family.

ANA said the order was a response to an increasing number of passengers expected to visit Japan in the run-up to the 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Boeing's 777X was launched with record orders at the Dubai Airshow in November. The 777-9X, the largest of the variants, will carry 406 passengers and enter service in 2020. ANA said it expects delivery between fiscal year 2021 and 2027.

JAL's multi-billion dollar order of long-haul jets from Airbus rather than Boeing, announced in October, was a break from decades of tradition.

Boeing holds more than 80 percent of Japan's commercial aviation market thanks to strong links with Japanese suppliers and political ties between Tokyo and Washington. Delays to its 787 Dreamliner and its subsequent grounding after its batteries overheated, however, have tarnished its image.

($1 = 102.3100 Japanese Yen)

It's not a firm order yet, they are still finalizing the details.

Boeing press release:

Quote:
Boeing Statement on ANA Widebody Airplane Selection

SEATTLE, Mar. 27, 2014 – Boeing [NYSE:BA] is pleased that ANA today announced the selection of 40 Boeing widebody airplanes for its strategic fleet renewal, including 20 777-9X, 14 787-9 and 6 777-300ER (extended range) airplanes. The agreement with the Japanese airline is valued at approximately $13 billion at list prices.

“ANA and Boeing share a long and successful partnership that spans more than five decades," said Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner. “ANA helped launched the 787 Dreamliner with Boeing, and we are honored to once again have ANA as an early customer of the 777X family of airplanes. We are very proud that they operate an all-Boeing widebody fleet.”

Boeing looks forward to working with ANA on finalizing the agreement at which time the order will be posted to the Boeing Orders & Deliveries website.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/index.ph...95&item=129021

Good news for the 777X program, it's the 6th customer and it brings the total number of orders and commitments to 300.

It's perfect in every sense, except the nose is what I'm saying. It's very obvious when you look at it from the side. In fact, the nose looks so out of place I tried to find out why it is so, and ended up finding they put the 767's nose on it.

The question is who cares? Not Boeing, not airlines. Just plane fanatics.

If there was any merit to redesigning the nose it would have been done with the 777X design to improve operating costs.
