Boeing's largest single-deck airliner will hit a major milestone next week, when it rolls out of the company's Everett, Washington, facility on March 13. In addition to larger windows, enhanced lighting and other passenger improvements, the 777X features special foldable wingtips, making it possible to expand the total wingspan while still enabling the aircraft to access existing gates.

There will be two models — the longer-range 777-8, capable of flying just over 10,000 miles without a stop, and the larger 777-9, with seating for up to 425, depending on the configuration.

So far, a handful of airlines have signed on to operate the 777X, including the seven carriers below, plus British Airways, which just confirmed plans to order 18 Boeing 777-9s to replace its aging 747-400 fleet.

The first 777X will be used for initial flight testing beginning later this year, with the wide-body jet expected to enter passenger service sometime in 2020.

TPG will attend Boeing's rollout event next week — stay tuned to the site and our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts for more. In the meantime, for a closer look at Boeing's latest wide-body jet, see:
