Re: Emirates renegotiating 777X order

For years smaller planes have got bigger (and more capable) and big planes have got fewer. Kind of like Moore's Law this trend continues. Most of us thought the trend would slow down with the demise of the 748/380. The new 321 and possible 797 and a looming slow down of the 777X seem part of the tr...

Re: Confirmed: Korean Air signing LOI for 30 787's

With KE removing first class and the entry into service of Beijing second airport there will be less need for 777X. True but when time comes to replace their 77Ws, 748s and A380s, the only thing that comes close to pax capacity of those aircraft is the 779 and I tend to think there is more chance o...

Lots to overcome, but an exciting product.

The engine will be the most challenging part after noise reduction. If promises are met, this aircraft will own the premium market in its range.
