While the 777 may be trendy right now, (UA was boasting its 777 last year in adverts in the UK for instance), I doubt that the 777 will remain a "status symbol" for long and the 747 will rightfully retake the honours eventually. Remember that the 777 is just a glorified DC10-L1011-A340 plane which will eventually be able to fly just as far as the DC10-A340 planes can. Boeing now has a complete family of planes (so many models of the 737 that one easily gets confused !) and Airbus is still missing a 747-class plane.
