    Now if they could just get rid of that buzzsaw sound from those turbofan engines. I’d feel a lot safer flying with those that have them. Badaboom isn’t a pleasant or assuring sound to hear.

    B 777. Is deceptively huge. From a distance it looks like a thin ball pen but when youre inside if it looks like a bigvfat sheaffer fountain pen. A ladys cogarrette from afar but when go inside its like a large havana or alhambra cigar.

    Boeing should forget about 737 debacle shoul concentrate only on whats proven and tested. The triple 7 x is a twin engine 747 minus the hump or the bulge.

    The best airliner is one that gets people home and in one piece. Manufacturer and model immaterial. I’ve only flown a couple dozen times and I love every plane that got me to destination safely. That said the 777 sure looks sweet but I’ve never been on one. Better than a 747? Well, historically, not yet, but maybe with time. Saw them both in line fir takeoff at Dulles and the 777 actually gave the illusion of being bigger, but the 747 looked more graceful. The 4 engines (total thrust notwithstanding) look more impressive.

    With about 5500 hours flying the triple all over the world I will say that I love the way it lands but hate how it can’t hold speed in turbulence. The 787 does a better job holding speed but can easily become a floater during landing.

    The 777 is the first commercial aircraft designed completely in a computer before any parts were mocked up or fitted. They were able to find potential problems using computer design. The 747 is an old plane, from the sixties, with many of the old controls and other old aircraft parts. The 777 is fairly new and was designed not that long ago.

    The Tale of the Tape
    Sales: Firm Orders and Delivered aircraft
    77X- 344
    Emirates ordering 150, Qatar Airways 50, and Etihad Airways 25, in addition to the September 2013 Lufthansa commitment for 34 aircraft. Boeing dropped the variants' "X" suffix, while keeping the 777X program name at the 2015 Dubai Airshow.
    In December 2013, Hong Kong-based Cathay Pacific ordered 21 777-9 airliners with deliveries from 2021 to 2024.[66]
    Emirates finalized its order for 150 777X aircraft, consisting of 115 777-9s and 35 777-8s in July 2014.[67] On July 16, Qatar Airways finalized its order for 50 777-9 aircraft, with purchase rights for 50 more 777-9s.[68] On July 31, Japan's All Nippon Airways finalized an order for 20 Boeing 777-9s.
    In February 2017, Singapore Airlines signed a letter of intent with Boeing for 20 777-9 and 19 787-10 airliners; this was firmed in June 2017.[72] The three Persian Gulf carriers (Emirates, Etihad Airways and Qatar Airways) hold 235 orders, 69% of the 340 commitments, which aren't as secure as they were: Etihad's widespread investing strategy has backfired as it reduces feed sources, making it harder to fill the orders for the 777X; Emirates demand has been slowing and it is considering to defer deliveries, having the smallest sovereign wealth fund backing; Qatar Airways is facing economic concerns and is suffering from a diplomatic crisis with its neighbors.
    After a nearly $2 billion loss in 2016, Etihad had to cut routes, shrink its fleet and is keen on canceling or deferring its orders, preferring to incur cancellations penalties rather than recurring losses from overcapacity. Etihad's investment strategy is reducing as it holds stakes in four airlines, half as many as before, and has 160 orders from Airbus and Boeing worth tens of billions of dollars. Meanwhile, Turkish Airlines has expressed its interest in the 777X.
    On February 28, 2019, British Airways parent International Airlines Group ordered up to 42 777-9, 18 firm and 24 options, valued at up to $18.6 billion.
    787- 823 delivered
    618 unfilled orders
    1441 total
    350- 265 delivered
    893 total orders
    380- 235 (31 aircraft taken out of service in 2019; returned to Airbus, stored or parted out)
    340- 377
    330- 1452
    330neo- 235 (losing sales to the 350)

    I've seen a wiki about 777x and saw that the -9 model could hold up to 414 passengers, that's very close to the capacity of a 747 right there. The -8 can get away with up to 380 passengers. Technology is damn impressive.

    The 777 programme was when Boeing seemed to be a straightforward friendly and honest company. We believed in it because the people involved in its design and production programme seemed genuinely enthusiastic and believed they were making the best thing since sliced bread. And they were, and we believed them because we LIKED what we saw at Boeing.
    At the time Flight Sims were booming and aviation seemed to be blossoming in every way. It was a great time to be around aircraft. I want those times back.

      It's also MUCH heavier.. heavier aircraft are generally smoother with less turbulence. Also you forget that well trained pilots make all the difference in the world. A great pilot will make a 737 or A320 take off smoother than a novice pilot in an A380. You can't compare Apples to Oranges.

      @Bobby Paluga And the incredible pounding that 777 took and still stayed intact shows the incredible durability of the 777. Cant wait to see the 777X start flight testing!

    • Bobby Paluga

      The 747 dramatically changed all the rules, once the Queen was in wide use fares dropped allowing most anyone the ability to fly. The 777 brought the multi engine mode being capable of very long flights on just two power plants. The Airbus 340 was cooked once the 777 was in use. Given the billions of miles the 777 has flown its safety record is impressive. The Asians crash at SFO was one of the worst cases of pilot incompetence I’ve ever come across. Three senior pilots in the cockpit, not one was monitoring the speed, altitude or sink rate. No one could confirm whether the auto pilot was on or off, they assumed it was on. The Eastern Airlines crash in the Everglades is similar three pilots no one checked the altitude, they were completely engrossed in a defective landing gear light.

    Beautiful? Design wise a generic twin engine aircraft. I mean it’s a technological marvel but beautiful? Na

    • dredeth
      dredeth 2 months ago

      @Jimmy Gee beauty of choices is that I think the opposite. To me those, what you call generic are the actual beauties , simple looking. Without too many unnecessary shapes added. Never liked that 747 bump or a tiny cabin shifted above the longitudinal axis or a weirdly placed engines that some of triplets had. L1011 looks like is having a cancer on a vertical stabilizer for example.
      When it comes to an aviation design the simplicity is what creates the beauty for some of us, that's why we find 777 the most beautiful.

    • Jimmy Gee
      Jimmy Gee 2 months ago

      dredeth L-1011 is probably the most beautiful aircraft ever made. The DC-9/MD-80/MD-90/717 is still flying and it absolutely gorgeous. You still see the DC-10/MD-11, also gorgeous. 727 gorgeous, 747 gorgeous. The current plane design while most efficient is all pretty generic these days. The 787 probably takes the cake when it comes to slightly better than generic twin engine aircraft design. The CS/A220 family is also up there. Outside of size the 777 isn’t anything special aesthetically

    • dredeth
      dredeth 2 months ago

  • Tom Seeberg
    Tom Seeberg 2 months ago

    Absolutely a masterpiece the triple sevens, but the market is probably not ready for much more of them. Boeing has produced 1600 pieces of them through the yrs and it is a lot of them flying. It has been a sucsess all together, but they will phase out the 300ERs now and focusing on the 777X models. But the thing is that the orderbook is definitely not full and there is only a few companies that has ordered them. So I think it will not be produced so much of them the next decade and Boeing will focuse more on the 787-8-9-10s. I,ve heard that the first 777-300ERs has done their job and has ended up in a scrapyard now. The came around in 2003 with Air France. So I don,t think many companies will still be stuck with aircrafts that is two decades old today. It is also a moment where Boeing has to think in a new way of building aircrafts and wich of them can they still produce.

I know they don't test failures because that's too dangerous, but I also know that planes since then have been fine when emergencies happened. So how did they actually make this decision definitively?
