Well, there will always be news... it's just that, for some reason, I have been filling them up with images. Should you want me to do news too, I will be more than happy to do so.

Exactly, there is plenty of 777X news to go around as of late, but I'm not seeing much of it here.

Well, I can share some of those too... it's just that, right now, I have other things to do. Feel free to share them.

I also read that Boeing is building a plant in China to build its 777s as well... can anyone confirm that?

Boeing is building the 777X and the rest of the 777s in the USA. They contracted that the Chinese that they will build the raked wing tip for the 777X.
I am surprised that we didn't hear an announcement of 777X orders. I think that the Chinese carriers would do well with the 777X.

2 contracts for the 777X production were recently awarded, 1 to a Chinese company, the other to a Japanese company.

Boeing Awards AVIC Contract for 777 Empennage Tips
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/Boeing-A...Empennage-Tips
(these are not the raked wingtips)

Boeing, Toray Industries Reach Agreement on Composites for 777X Wings
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/2014-11-...for-777X-Wings
(these composites will be used in the new wing factory in Everett, Washington)


The recent Zhuhai Airshow where the AVIC contract was announced didn't result in any large orders for Airbus and Boeing. Apparently this wasn't the place for any large orders for non Chinese manufactures.

The earlier rumored 777 order from Kuwait Airways has now been confirmed by the airline and Boeing, but no order has been signed yet. It will be an order for 10 777-300ERs, we have to wait a bit longer for the next 777X order.

Quote:
Boeing Statement on Kuwait Airways’ Intent to Purchase 10 777-300ERs

SEATTLE, Nov. 20, 2014 – Boeing [NYSE: BA] is pleased that Kuwait Airways has announced its intent to purchase 10 777-300ER (Extended Range) airplanes worth $3.3 billion at current list prices.

“We appreciate the start of a new partnership with Kuwait Airways,” said Marty Bentrott, vice president of Sales for Middle East, Russia and Central Asia, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “Boeing looks forward to an enduring relationship with Kuwait Airways and we are excited to see that the 777-300ER airplane, which is the preferred long-haul carrier for so many airlines around the world, will now play an important role in the airline’s fleet strategy and expansion.”

The order will be posted on Boeing's Orders & Deliveries website when finalized.
http://boeing.mediaroom.com/Boeing-S...-10-777-300ERs


Boeing needs this kind of orders to bridge the gap towards the introduction of the 777X. Boeing has stated that they won't expect that the production rate will be reduced, but most analyst think that it will inevitable to slow down. There are already some The current production rate is 8.3 777s per month, this could be reduced significantly. They need this kind of orders to keep the production going, even when the new 777X production line starts up and has to build up the production rate in the first couple of years.


As for 777X orders, I see that airlines are waiting a bit to place orders this early for planes for planes that are still in development. The 1st one will be delivered in 2020, the closer we get to the new decade the more orders will be placed.

That order could either:

- Replace its current fleet of B747-400s (mixed configuration) and A340-300s; and/or
- Replace its older B777-200ERs in its fleet

With ten B777-300ERs for Kuwait Airways, it can only mean one thing: it is looking to expand its reach further from its base in Kuwait, although not as aggressively as its cousins to the south.

It's part of a complete fleet renewal and also for expansion.

They also have 5 leased A332 coming in (used ones) as an interim solution before they will get 10 A350-900s. These were supposed to replace their long haul fleet of 5 A300-600s, 4 A340-300s, 1 747 & 2 777-200ERs.

Going from 12 to 20 long haul planes is a big step, with the size of the 777-300ER is also a huge step upwards capacity wise. Especially after the financial problems that the airlines had it can be seen as a bit too ambitious. But the Kuwaiti government is backing the airline of course, it won't go bust.

That would be a really big step indeed for the carrier. I just hope that the B777-300ERs will feature new P and J class seats, as well as retouched (if not completely new) Y (if not also Y+) seats so that it can compete with the Mideast Big 3... if not also allow itself to stand out from the other airlines in the region.

Amazing... a combination of Nok Air, one of Thailand's largest LCCs, and Scoot Air, the LCC arm of Singapore Airlines. What would be its first destinations?
