With theĀ official launch of the Boeing 777-8 Freighter, we can now make a comparison with that other new full freighter that was officially launched last July: the Airbus A350F. Boeing 777-8 Freighter versus the Airbus A350F.


By length, the Airbus and Boeing are remarkably close: 70.8 meters for the A350, 70.9 meters for the Boeing.
The Boeing has a significantly wider span: 71.8 meters including folding wingtips, 64.82 meters with folded tips. Even with the tips up, the span is still wider than the 64.75 meters of the Airbus.
