Boeing and Airbus Industrie Design History
The Boeing Company, and the Boeing 777:

Headquartered in Seattle, Washington, the Boeing Company has long symbolized technologic prowess. It is in fact the United State's number one exporter. The development of the 777 transport family represents a major evolutionary advance for both the company itself and aviation in general.

The Boeing Company's long-term sales strategy involves using advanced design and manufacturing techniques to "hold the line on price and progressively reduce the operating cost of its transports" (Proctor, 1994, pp. 48-49).
