Just to put things right, on the Boeing website the following '97 list prices
are shown :
B747-400 156 to 174 M$
B777-300 149 to 171 M$
The price difference between a B777-200 and -200 IGW is 7M$.
This would result in a '97 list price for the B777-300X of 156 to 178 M$,
nearly the same price as for a B747-400. I think that Boeing can make 30M$
on this new bird, if it's going to be built one day ....
