Boeing staff have had a first look at the new 777-9X at an internal event at the company’s Everett facility just outside Seattle in Washington State.
Boeing has won its first 777-X orders for about two years and secured a new airline customer for the type after British Airways signed for up to 42 aircraft.
Boeing says it will officially unveil the first 777-9X to the world at its Everett facility just outside Seattle on March 13.
