Boeing has just revealed its latest airliner, the 777X, at the 2013 Dubai Airshow. It’s the first by the company to boast folding wing-tips (based on the 787 Dreamliner), which increase wingspan and, as a result, fuel efficiency, without limiting airport access. The 777X will be both the largest and most efficient twin-engine jet in the world. This model will be powered by GE’s GE9X engine.

Here’s what Boeing Commercial Airplanes President and CEO Ray Conner has to say about the aircraft: „The airplane will build on the market-leading 777 and will provide superior operating economics. The airplane will be 12 percent more fuel efficient than any competing airplane.“ The company has already received a reported 342 orders for the new aircraft.
