About the Boeing 777

The Boeing 777 family is a long-range, wide-body twin-engine jet airliner developed and manufactured by Boeing Commercial Airplanes. They are the world’s largest twinjets and have a typical seating capacity of 314 to 396 passengers, with a range of 5,240 to 8,555 nautical miles (9,704 to 15,844 km). Commonly referred to as the “Triple Seven,” their distinguishing features include the largest-diameter turbofan engines of any aircraft, six wheels on each main landing gear, a fully circular fuselage cross-section, and a blade-shaped tail cone. The 777, developed in consultation with eight major airlines, was designed to replace older wide-body airliners and bridge the capacity difference between Boeing’s 767 and 747. As it’s Boeing’s first fly-by-wire airliner, it has computer-mediated controls. It was also the first commercial aircraft to be designed entirely with computer-aided design.

The 777 is produced in two fuselage lengths as of 2017. The original 777-200 variant entered commercial service in 1995, followed by the extended-range 777-200ER in 1997 — the stretched 777-300, which is 33.25 ft (10.1 m) longer, followed in 1998. The initial 777-200, -200ER and -300 versions come equipped with General Electric GE90, Pratt & Whitney PW4000, or Rolls-Royce Trent 800 engines. The extended-range 777-300ER and ultra-long-range 777-200LR variants entered service in 2004 and 2006 respectively, while the 777F, a freighter version, debuted in February 2009; these variants all feature high-output GE90 engines and extended raked wingtips. The 777-200LR is one of the world’s longest-range airliners, able to fly more than halfway around the globe, and holds the record for the longest distance flown non-stop by a commercial aircraft.

The 777 first entered commercial service with United Airlines on June 7, 1995. It has received more orders than any other wide-body airliner; as of May 2017, 60 customers had placed orders for 1,911 aircraft of all variants, with 1,490 delivered. The most common and successful option is the 777-300ER with 731 provided and 815 orders; Emirates operates the largest 777 fleets, with 157 passenger and freighter aircraft as of July 2016. The 777 has been involved in six hull losses as of October 2016; the Asiana Airlines Flight 214 accident in July 2013 was its first fatal crash in 18 years of service.

The 777 ranks as one of Boeing’s best-selling aircraft models even today. Airlines that have acquired the type praised it as a comparatively fuel-efficient alternative to other wide-body jets and have increasingly deployed the aircraft on long-haul transoceanic routes. Direct market competitors include the Airbus A330-300, the Airbus A350 XWB, and the out-of-production A340 and McDonnell Douglas MD-11. The 787 Dreamliner, which entered service in 2011, shares design features and a standard type rating for pilots with the 777. In November 2013, Boeing announced the development of the upgraded 777-8 and 777-9 variants, collectively named 777X, featuring composite wings and GE9X engines and further technologies developed for the 787. The new 777X series is planned to enter service by 2020.

Things to be reworked

There are several things that might be good to rework:

A Cockpit Rework
With Working instruments
Wingflex
Wing Markings
Registration Codes on the Wings
Corrected Engines Sizes On 777 variants
Moving Flaperon
4K Textures
Gear (Truck) Tilt
Wing lights
Boeing 777-300
Additional liveries

(Feel Free to add to this or update the list ;))


I’m sure it’s too early to request to another rework on this 777 as other models need to be prioritized over the 777. But I think another rework can be re-considered after doing some reworks on different planes. I’m sure this won’t be implemented shortly. But I think it will be nice if the 777 can be corrected someday ;)

It just got reworked a few months ago …

Retracted one of my votes for this, really want to see wing flex on the 777-300ER 😍

I do acknowledge the fact that this aircraft has been reworked before. But I think there’s still some room for improvements which can be done if the developers want to do another rework for the type ;)

This would be an epic family to rework - highly needed!

Oh the roaring sounds!

777 flys with nose up in cruise … needs trim to be held, this could be corrected as well

I agree. Compared to the B787, the wingtip and tailfin NAV and Strobe light are missing. The strobes should blink in a 1x interval and not 2x.

A big 777 rework is really needed, I’d love to see it,
but other planes, especially the A380 have to come first :)

Following the community, the liner or long hauler not trashhaulers Misha are really appreciated!

Yes! 4K textures, a better cockpit and wingflex is what we need on these birds. I’d love to see it get actually reworked.

I support the fact fully. The 777 is currently a good aircraft but has room for improvement. The 4K textures, wing update(wing flex, wing markings etc) and a couple of missing liveries such as Austrian Airlines, [LATAM Brasil(TAM colours), [Kenya Airways, Kuwait and Saudia could do the trick.

I love the sound of that coz it will add realism to the app…

Here’s another reason to vote for this beauty, those GE90’s and wing-flex 😍

What is it called when you have. Your spoilers armed on landing and it will move with the flaperon and aileron

Don’t forget the United airlines B777-300ER

Spoilerons and flaperons! Another must have.

Not surprised he has got your vote ;).

The wingflex kills me 😍❤✈! Definitely must have!

It does that IRL… as a matter a fact, most heavies have 4-5 degree pitch up during cruise. @Yuan_Tugo as a 777 driver can probably verify.
