PLEASE READ: The B777X will be having its first test flight very soon, and I know this plane would not be added anytime soon, but I would already like to create a request for it since we have more information about the aircraft, and since we know that the aircraft is already “real”, and its not just an idea. (Also, the other feature requests were taken down since at that time, the B777X was just a plan. The only 777X feature request that is active is a BBJ version (I don’t think a BBJ version exists) Please do not take this thread down (:

❓ Short Introduction of Boeing 777X ❓
Caption credits to Wikipedia
The Boeing 777X is the latest series of the long-range, wide-body, twin-engine Boeing 777 family from Boeing Commercial Airplanes. The 777X will feature new GE9X engines, new composite wings with folding wingtips, greater cabin width and seating capacity, and technologies from the Boeing 787.
The 777X was launched in November 2013 with two variants: the 777-8 and the 777-9. The 777-8 provides seating for 365 passengers and has a range of 8,690 nmi (16,090 km) while the 777-9 has seating for 414 passengers and a range of over 7,525 nmi (13,936 km). The -9 is expected to fly in the second quarter of 2019 with deliveries to begin one year later.
❓ Why Boeing 777X? ❓
According to Boeing…
" Building on the success of the 777 and 787 Dreamliner families, the 777X will be the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world, unmatched in every aspect of performance. But performance is just part of the story. The cabin interior of the 777X is inspired by the comforts and conveniences of the 787 Dreamliner, with larger windows, a wider cabin, new lighting and enhanced architecture — all of which will be custom-tailored for a unique 777X experience. The all-new 777X. That’s a better way to fly."
❓ My opinion regarding the Boeing 777X? ❓
The A350 is currently very popular in the Infinite Flight Community, and I feel like the Boeing 777X deserves some popularity too. The B777X is a very fascinating and modern plane with technology like no other. With its first test flight happening very soon, (as of May 2019) it is only a matter of time until we see this aircraft in service. This aircraft would also make the Boeing Family more complete in Infinite Flight. Share your thoughts about this aircraft below :D
