theres a new 747 coming out. It is called the 747-8. it looks real great. here a webpage all about it....tell me what you think.
Also a 777-200LR sets a world distance record. Heres a link with that story.
So are you going to go for a type rating to fly it or that 777 or no?
If you had to pick between the two which one and why?
Thanks for those links Littleal100, I might just add another one, if you don't mind http://www.boeing.com/news/releases/2005/q4/nr_051114h.html

'The 747-8 also fits easily in today's aviation infrastructure, flying into more than 210 airports worldwide without additional, expensive infrastructure changes required.'
