Boeing is rolling out the 777-9 next week in Seattle.  This 425 seat super-twin is a stretched and re-engined version of the 777-300ER, and will feature a new carbon-fibre composite wing with folding wingtips.  The aircraft, according to Boeing, will provide the lowest seat-mile costs of any current aircraft.

When the 747-400 was introduced, it occupied a similar position – about 425 seats and the lowest seat-mile costs in the industry, and became wildly successful.  Will the 777-9 take over that title over the next decade or two?
