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
Registration Codes on the Wings
Corrected Engines Sizes On 777 variants
Gear (Truck) Tilt
(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 ;)
