Coming soon: A bigger, better Boeing bird, the 777x [PHOTOS] | Loungtastic
After winning 51 orders for older 777 wide body jets in 2018, Boeing sales teams are now focused on persuading more airlines to buy the new 777X passenger airplane in 2019.
"We do see a high wave of replacement demand (for worn, older 777s) early in the next decade, but that means those sales campaigns are underway now," Boeing Chairman, President and CEO Dennis Muilenburg said Wednesday.
Boeing's 777-9X has folding wings and is expected to be the world's largest twin-engine jet when it begins service in 2020.(I can't wait!)
