Will Boeing End Up Making A 777-10X?As Boeing inches towards the first flight of the Boeing 777X later this month, more leaks and sneak previews are making their way to the media. But one special version of the 777X, the 777-10X has not been heard of in some time. Will Boeing end up building the 777-10X? Or is it just a pipe dream with no real-world application?

They should start work on the 797.

How long can they go before they need 777 version of MCAS to prevent tail strikes?
Never, the 777 is fly-by wire and has a stickpusher system.
Just saying it might get toooooooo long. 777-9 looks beautiful, but the 10 start to look like a Dash-8...
All they'd need are a few wheels on the tail to avoid tailstrike damage.
Oh sorry, I misread the question. Of course the 737 mcas does not prevent tailstrikes. The best way to avoid tailstrikes is not exceed the recommended rotation rate. But sometimes a tailstrike is the best option, think about a windshear or blocked runway. So you wouldn’t want a system to prevent you from doing that.
And Airbus planes won't allow a pilot to do that.
