Boeing just flaunted its 777X flagship
A total of 351 orders have already been placed for the aircraft from customers like Emirates, Lufthansa, Qatar Airways, and more.
Boeing’s landmark 777X just made its first international debut at the Dubai Airshow 2021, giving the public a look at the new flagship both inside as well as out only under two years since it first flew in January 2020.
This project is one of Boeing’s most ambitious and envisions to create a twin-engine offering with a capacity comparable to that of the 747 combined with efficiencies comparable to a 787 Dreamliner.
By the time the 777X enters service, Boeing will have ceased producing the 747, the first time since the 1950s that Boeing will have no four-engine jets in production.
In January 2020, the Boeing 777X flew for the first time in an incredible preview of the next generation of commercial airplanes.
Boeing released the 777X program in November 2013 with two aircraft, the larger 777-9 and the smaller 777-8. Each aircraft is capable of flying around 400 passengers more than 7,000 nautical miles.
