These details are from the 200ER, but they should be similar, as the 777 fleet is much like each other.I quote from the British Airways Flying Manual, this is regarding a MANUAL landing"When crossing the threshold, shift the visual sighting point to the far end of the runway, while maintaing the decent rate. Initiate the flare when the main gear is approximately 20 feet above the runway by increasing the pitch attitude approximately 1-2 degrees."I'm sure its identical for the Autoland, I'm just trying to find it in the Manual.Cheers

Hi,Flare is armed when LAND 3 or Land 2 is annunciated on the PFDs. At approximately 50 feet radio altitude, the autopilot start the flare maneuver. Flare replaces the G/S pitch flight mode annunciation. During Flare:- Between 25 and 50 feet radio altitude, the autothrottle begins retarding the thrust levers to idle- the PFD autothrottle annunciation changes from SPD to IDLE- at touchdown, the FLARE annunciation is no longer displayed, and the nose is lowered to the runway.Cheerio Sjaako
