WATCH Boeing 777X interior video.

The Boeing 777X combines the best features of the current 777 with a longer and wider fuselage, new engine and the composite wing design from the Boeing 787.

It also features 20 per cent larger windows and lowers pressurization altitude to reduce jet lag.

The 777-9X seats more than 400 passengers, depending on an airline’s configuration choices.

With a range of more than 8,200 nautical miles (15,185 km), the aircraft will have the lowest operating cost per seat of any commercial aircraft says, Boeing.

The second member of the family, the 777-8X, will be the most flexible jet in the world claims Boeing. The aircraft will seat 350 passengers and offer a range capability of more than 9,300 nautical miles (17,220 km).

The driving force behind the 777X is Emirates President Sir Tim Clark, whose airline is the lead buyer with an order for 150.

Sir Tim describes the 777X as “an absolute peach”.

Key to his enthusiasm is the aircraft’s economics and greater space — it is 20 per cent more efficient per seat than the industry’s long-time benchmark the 777-300ER.

The 777X is due to fly early nxt year and be delivered late in 2020.
