Has any carrier taken advantage of Boeing's offer to manufacture the 777 with
wings that can be shortened by folding up before reaching the gate? It was
mentioned in a TV documentary, but I certainly haven't seen such a sight
anywhere. Are there that many airports gates where such a practise would be
helpful?
