The #777X attracting quite the crowd from Boeing employees! Such a stunning looking aircraft. I knew it’d look good from the renderings but it has exceeded my expectations.

But photos of the new jetliner appeared on Twitter via DJ's Aviation, an account dedicated to all things aviation. The Boeing 777-9 variant measures 77 meters (252 feet) in length and can seat up to 425 passengers.
Boeing also claims that the 777X is built with the most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. So far, carriers like All Nippon Airways, Cathay Pacific, British Airways, Lufthansa, Emirates, Singapore Airlines, Etihad and Qatar Airways have placed orders for the newest aircraft.
