Boeing gearing up for new 777-X

by Braniff on February 29, 2012

A recent management shift by Boeing seems to indicate the company’s intent to develop a new version of the 777, now that the future of the 737 is well-defined.

Boeing swapped the managers of the 777 and 787 programs to ??better align our organization for the challenges ahead,? Jim Albaugh, president of Boeing Commercial Airplanes, told employees Feb. 23. The announcement was made public Feb. 24.

Larry Loftis, who has led a mature 777 program, takes over as general manager of the 787 model, a program with production-rate challenges ahead.
