Probably a while before 777 replace 747-400.  The 400 is a bit big, in that
the F and C capacity is ideal to make lots of money but the Y cabin is too
big.  The 777 is much more suitable.
Try flying long distances in the 777 - its dull.  The F class cabin on a 747
is unique - a small hideway in the front through which no one ever wanders.
On the 777 it has galleys in front and behind the F cabin, and all pax often
board and deplane thru it.  As the F cabin is for most important airlines
the place where the money is made, the 747 will be preferred.

Expect 777s to repalce 742, 741, DC10 equip as these planes wear out and die
