British Airways Orders 777X
Today the International Airline British Airways announced they have ordered 42 Boeing 777X, with 18 firm orders and 24 options. They are slowly phasing out the older 747’s in their fleet. Even though the aircraft hasn’t started undergoing physical tests, the first 777X is in the process of being painted for testing. The deal is a big one for Boeing, with the pirce being US $18.6 Billion dollars. The 777X is said to be ‘the world’s most fuel efficient longhaul aircraft’ and ‘will bring many benefits to the British Airways fleet. It’s the ideal replacement for the 747 and its size and range will be an excellent fit for the airline’s existing network’.
