Boeing 777X and Airbus A350 are wide-body aircraft that feature advanced technology. We can label these as 21st-century aircraft that feature engines with reduced carbon emissions. Both aircraft have their uniqueness in terms of capabilities & performance.
Let’s talk about the seating capacity Boeing B777x-9 carries 414 passengers whereas 42 seats are business class and 372 can be configured with economy class. It can accommodate up to 426 seats maximum.
When we talk about the A350-1000 series aircraft can accommodate 369 seats whereas 54 seats can be put as business class and 315 seats can be economy. It has a maximum seating capacity of up to 480. If we compare with the maximum capacity of seating A350 accommodate54 more seats than the Boeing B777x aircraft.
Comparison of B777x and A350-1000
The overall length of the B 777-9 is around 251 feet 9 inches and the A350 has 242.1 feet.
The wingspan of B 777-9 is 235.5 feet whereas the A350 has 212.43 feet.
The height of the B 777-9 is 64.7 feet and the a350 has 56 feet.
The Tripe B 777-9 cabin width is around 19.7 feet and the a350 has 18.5 feet.
The maximum takeoff weight of the B 777-9 is around 351.5 tons whereas the a350 has 316 tons.
The maximum payload of the B 777-9 is 73.5 tons and the A350 has 68 tons.
The fuel capacity of the B 777-9 is 158.9 tons whereas the a350 has 124.65 tons. This means 777x can hold 34 tons more fuel than A350.

Boeing 777x and A350 Engines
The Boeing B 777-9 featured the GE 9x and which is the world’s biggest engine in terms of thrust and size which can produce up to 489 Kilo newtons. It is powered and developed by General Electric. Which can produce up to 489 Kilonewtons of thrust.
The Airbus A350 features the Rolls Royce Trent engine, renowned as one of the most efficient and powerful engines ever built for commercial airlines, capable of producing up to 431 kilonewtons of thrust
B 777-9 burning around 48 lb of fuel per nautical mile. A350 equates to a burn of around 32 lb per nautical mile.
The A350-1000 cost up to is $ 366.5 million, while the A350-900 costs $ 317.4 million.
The 777-9 is being marketed at $ 442.2 million, while the 777-8 will be $ 410.2 million.
Four unique differences between the A350 and B777x.
There are four important factors that propel the Boeing B777x to the next generation of aircraft.
1, Boeing employed composite materials in the wing construction, and the wing span is the longest of any commercial passenger aeroplane. It also has the option of folding wings, which can be employed in areas with limited space.
2: It boasts a Giant GE9x engine that was expressly designed for the Boeing 777x and is the most efficient and powerful engine in its class.
3: It has a good aerodynamic form, which helps it save fuel and run more efficiently.
No. 4, The B777x’s cabin is modelled after the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, with wider windows, increased pressurization, mood lighting, and superior architecture.
The A350 isn’t far behind in terms of technological advancement. The A350 was first introduced in 2015, with Qatar Airways as the launch customer. Despite its age, it still has the most advanced technologies in its categories. There are four reasons why the A350 is the best aircraft.
No. 1 It’s made up of 53% composite materials, which are lighter and stronger than typical aluminium.
No. 2, The A350’s wings ‘flap’ while in flight, taking inspiration from nature. The slight motions allowed in the wings minimise drag and fuel usage, however not to the extent that you’d notice.
No. 3: The Trent XWB engines from Rolls-Royce are quieter and more fuel-efficient than their current counterparts. These contribute to a significant reduction in cabin noise. Intelligent pressurization, state-of-the-art air conditioning, and mood lighting all work together to alleviate jetlag.
No. 4, the Airbus A350 makes use of CFD technologies to improve the aerodynamic shapes and structures of the aircraft, making it more efficient and reducing drag.
