Re: Boeing defines 737-10MAX

1. You have no idea who is actually interested in the MAX 10. I do, actually. It's all over Twitter with links to legit media sources. 2. It'll be nearly a decade before a clean sheet debuts - plenty of time to get a return on the MAX 10. Per United and Udvar-Hazy, EIS for NMA/MOM is 2025, if launc...

Only ONE (!!!) potengial buyer for 737-10X vs. many (including United, Alaska and ALC's Udvar-Hazy) interested and buzzing around at ISTAT about NMA/MOM/797.

Guys, the writing's on the wall. MAX 10 is going BYE BYE. And that's a good thing, actually.

Re: Boeing defines 737-10MAX

Fair comparison. A A321 with 2 tanks carries roughly as much fuel as a 737 with one tank. And the range advantage in this configuration should go to the 737, more so if you look at a configuration without extra tanks. The data shown looks great. 5% lower trip costs and 5% lower CASM is a big advant...

Neither A350 nor 787 ever made anything near vertical climb. It is 30 - 35% angle of attack initially for like first few seconds to show off aircraft capability, but shortly thereafter goes back to regular 15% climb.

I would imagine that on the same mission, the trip cost flown by 737-8-200 will be much lower from the one flown by A321neo.

Boeing's plane will have much lower OEW at the expense of 40 seats, while A321neo needs those extra seats to earn its revenue.
