    Everytime I see the 777, I think - 'look at the size of those freakin engines!'
    Everytime I see the A380, I think 'look at the size of those wings!'

    Regarding those 777x folding wingtips, they don't look very long until one realizes each on is actually 11 feet long, so not insubstantial. And I believe the engine nacelle diameter is larger than the fuselage of a 737. There certainly is some cool items with the 777.
    An interesting thought is with extend ranges of smaller airplanes like the 787 and even maybe future upgrades of a variety of airplanes with newer more fuel efficient engines, does that crowd in on the sales of larger airplanes? I think it does due to the ease and flexibility of filling and routing smaller airplanes.

    Well it might be good but only if Boeing does not repeat its failures with the 737Max. Boeing has major compensation to pay to the bereaved families whose dead are a result of Boeing criminally failing to inform pilots of critical new procedures.

    Don't get me wrong, I like the 777 a lot, but I hate Boeing as a company. They profit off Murica waging illegal, offensive wars against other countries, which didn't attack them.

    Until the Asiana Airlines incident there had been no fatalities (and I believe the 777 program is the safest wide-body program of all time still). None of the fatalities were a result of design fault, or parts/ manufacturing/ or maintenance fault. I must comment also, that I love your sense of humor (occasionally injected :) Great videos.

    777 is so far best and economical. Except ice crystal issue with BA crash having no fatalities but Asiana crash on SFO runway was pilot error and Malaysia airlines was again pilot suicidal and another hit by missile in wrong flying region...technically considering not even a single fatality in 777 with actual airplane problem

    Oh, boy, I want to chime in on two safety issues: On the Emirates crash landing, people stopped, checked the seat back pockets and calmly removed personal items from the overhead bins... THE EFFING PLANE WAS ALREADY ON FIRE!!!!
    And the second one was the in cabin depressurization where people just put the O2 mask over their mouth. Not their mouth And nose as directed by every damn safety speech anyone has Ever heard before a flight... ARRRGH!

    SKYSHIPS ENG - You totally mislead here. The Russians shot down on plane - not the fault of Boeing. An islamist plot for Malaysia Airlines murdered everyone by intentionally ditching his plane - not boeing's fault. The pilot in Dubai messed up and crashed the plane and no passengers were injured or died - not boeing's fault. The pilot who crashed on landing didn't even know how to land the plane and crashed like an idiot - definitely not Boeing's fault. The British Airways crash was more complicated and is a valid point - the fuel freezing crystals thing had to do with the engine itself and although not made by Boeing it is close enough to being a Boeing product issue - but no one died in the crash. Out of all your examples, exactly ZERO people died because of this plane. None. Idiot suicidal pilots and war zone shoot downs simply don't count. The 777 is easily the world's safest airplane.

    First time I saw this magnificent plane was on a Delta flight from Concinnati, Ohio to Istanbul. We flew business class and it was the best flight I ever took. The plane is so stable and spacious inside ! Now that Delta has abandoned Cincinnati as a hub, I am sure there will never be another flight to Istanbul.

    At the 17:28 mark, just wondering if anyone caught the author’s reference to Steve Jobs and Apple. Although the author shows current Apple CEO Tim Cook, he references the infamous Steve Jobs remark of, “One More Thing,” three simple words that attendees sat anxiously awaiting to hear while in their seats at Apple’s product demonstrations each year.
    Anyway...just wondering if others saw it.

    The best flight I ever had was on 777 from Amsterdam to NYC operated by KLM . Great plane , great service. On time. It is what air travel should be. I understand four engine aircraft are too costly to operate, but my old love was the 747. I flew it many times and grew to love it.

    Do Boeing actually need a 80m long plane to compete with the Airbus A380? As much as the A380 is great, it's commercially flopping because it was build for an outdated financial model.

    The 777 is NOT the best airliner of this century. The Bombardier C-Series jets now known as the Airbus A220, are because they are 100 percent new. A radical new type of jet engine that has a gearbox inside it to reduce noise by 75 percent and reduce the use of fuel by 22 percent. The shape of the fuselage is also radical, because it's not egg shaped like every other plane in the world. Bombardier made the side walls much more straight up and down, so it's not shaped like other planes. This allows more width at the head and the feet with straighter, less curved walls. The washrooms in the economy section can accept an airline wheelchair. No other economy section plane can do that. The overhead bins are 6 inches lower than any other plane. The overhead bins can accept three full size IATA 26 inch suitcases nose first. The isles are wider, the windows are the same size as a Boeing 777 and every row of seats gets it's own window. The seats are the widest in economy with the middle seat 19 inches wide, in every single version of the plane. No other plane has that in economy section. The noise wave heard on the ground is significantly less than any other jet of the same power, by over 55 percent, allowing the Bombardier CS100 and CS300 to take off and land late at night without breaking noise rules for airports. Oh, yes, the 108 to 130 passenger Bombardier CS100 now A220-100, can take off and land fully loaded in hot weather in less than 5,000 feet which is 1524 meters. This is a much shorter runway distance required, than either of the other two Bombardier RJ or regional jets the CRJ900 and the CRJ1000. This is a radical new jet in every way. It's the only 100 percent all new single isle jet in over 2 decades. As the song says...."Can't Touch This". The Boeing 777 is just a copy of other jets with a couple of tweaks, here and there. Just the facts, just the facts. Delta will start flying the first of their 75 Bombardier CS100 jets from NYC in a few weeks, i think the 1st route is LGA to Boston the last few days of January, then LGA to LAX and LGA to Dallas to start. Delta also is very smart because they signed the deal with an Option of another 50 of these WHISPERJETS. Saving 22 percent on fuel burn will make this cheaper to operate than even a 5 year old Boeing 737.

    GE put significant money into the development of this aircraft in exchange for exclusive application. This money also include engineering input which from my understanding means that GE provides an propulsion package not just an engine. This includes the FADEC engine control system.. Boeing has done the same thing with the 787 and the keep development costs down.

    Work for a major u.s. carrier for over 40 years, seen many aircraft, variants, size, not only has the industry changed , the 777 has a place everywhere , worldwide, any route. I will say I was shocked at some routes my airline flew with the 777. It’s a roomy, comfortable airplane for long haul. Very popular with our customers, crew rests are much better than old. Most u.s. carriers seem to hold on to their airplanes longer than most, so united, delta and American do not have plans anytime soon to replace the current fleet. However in a few years they will have to and I’m sure they will choose 777x and ge9x. Makes all the sense in the world. Meanwhile Boeing hopefully will be pouring out the 797. Favorite variant is the -300. A most perfect aircraft for everyone and in my opinion large enough.

    Yes, I did mean transponder along with other communication devices that update the companies technical support people on engine efficiency for example or dispatch, collision avoidance functions, internet services etc.. When the pilots or just the captain of MH370 switched off their transponder and the other devices' I'm trying to recall ,they were truly lost and invisible to the rest of the world. I agree that while your aircraft is on the ground you don't want to be distracted with verbal traffic. I don't want any more PAs or cockpit and cabin staff to lose their lives as those on 370 did. Whether it's ECAS if there is such a thing or the transponder we can't allow all the communication/tracking functions to be switched off in cruising airliners.

    I don’t quite understand why any pilot can shut down his airliner’s transceiver and other communication devices while airborne. Will this option be discontinued after the “highjacked” MH370, was able to lose itself in the Indian Ocean?

    • GH1618
      GH1618 2 months ago

      Bobby Paluga - You must mean “transponder.” The reason the transponder can be shot off is that you don’t want all the aircraft on the ground at airports responding and clogging up the radar screens.

    • Jam Dee
      Jam Dee 2 months ago

      Like any computer, the transponders sometimes fail, and the first thing the controller tells the aircraft is, "recycle transponder, squawk XXXX" ..... That entails turning it off, and back on -- basically a reboot ......

    I do have to say though, I dont like the squat ass tails on almost all newer planes. The tail should slope up from bottom alway up practicaly. This alows for more rotation & less tail strike, especially on the longer planes. Not to mention it is so much more graceful when the top of fuselage is horizontally straight, in my humble opinion.
