Big Boeing 777 Upgrade

Big Boeing 777 Upgrade, What's The Plan?!

After initial good sales beating the A340 the Boeing 777-200/ER/LR series is loosing market share rapidly. The 777-200LR is top heavy and attractive for a limited market, the 300ER takes the bulk of the 777 passenger backlog. The A330-300 gained terrain on flights up to 10 hrs and the A350-900XWB scored large orders. EK, BA and ILFC asked for 777 improvements.

1.5 Year ago McNerney said they might improve the 777 to counter the A350XWB. Since then hundreds of XWB have been ordered, the 787-10 has been delayed without a new target date.
