Boeing seems to be working/planning/thinking about new 737s, new 767s, new 747s and new 777s. However, apart from the (obvious) 777 and the new 747s, I do not see any mention of having 777 style FBW systems on those new/updated planes. If Boeing is to produce a new version of the 767, would it retain the conventional 767 controls or migrate to the 777 style of controls ? What about the new 737s ? I am puzzled that Boeing doesn't seem to be pushing a roll out of the 777-FBW system across its entire product line to enhance its position against Airbus which has a fair amount of cockpit commonality across its models.
