I’m thrilled to say that we’re taking the next step on the 777X. Development keeps progressing and we’re now able to share more technical, pricing and scheduling details about the airplane with our customers.
And let me tell you—customers love what they’re seeing. We’ve also gotten a lot of great input from them.
Here’s a rendering of the 777X.
The 777X would serve long-range and high-cargo demand markets in a larger seat class (350-400 passengers) than today’s 777. It would also feature new GE engines and a larger composite wing for improved fuel efficiency. It’s also expected to provide the lowest fuel burn per seat of any airplane in commercial service.
The timing around the official program launch depends on the market response during our next phase of discussions with customers—but we’re still targeting entry into service near the end of this decade. I know a lot of you are excited about this airplane— and so are we.
