I get the impression that the very first batch of 777s handed to United for instance were "early prototypes" (lets call them 777-200) and that by now Boeing has new and improved 777-200s available (777-200IGW etc). Would any airline without existing 777s want to order the same airplanes that were first delivered to UA ? Or would they not prefer to get the more recent incantations of the 777-200s that have incorporated improvements (IGW range etc)? Are we talking here about the evolutionary fine tuning of the 777-200 or does Boeing really plan to keep on marketing various models of the 777-200 ?
