Pretty positive start for the 777X program.

Don't imagine the workers bees will have much to celebrate, when and I'm just spit ballin here, Boeing announces they will build them somewhere in the mid East, possibly UAE as an example.

(Reuters) - Boeing (BA.N) said it has no plans to reopen talks with a union representing Washington state workers who have rejected a labor contract linked to its newest jet and vowed it would "look very broadly" at where to build it.

Does this not spell the death knell of the 747-8? The 777 and 787 now cover the entire range of loads, the 747 is the odd duck.
