Boeing Completes 777X Firm Configuration

Boeing has completed the firm configuration milestone for the 777-9, the first member of the 777X family to be developed.

The Boeing 777X team reached this design milestone after working closely with airline customers and key suppliers to optimize the configuration of the new airplane.

“It’s great to see the airlines and industry team side-by-side with us as we achieve this important milestone,” said Bob Feldmann, vice president and general manager of the 777X program, Boeing Commercial Airplanes. “The team has followed a disciplined process to complete all of the requirements for this stage of the program.”

“The program is right where we want it to be,” added Feldmann. “We have an airplane and production system that are on track and on schedule, and we remain laser focused on meeting our commitments to our customers.”
