Re: B763 vs B738 / 4 - 5h routes

A lot of times are due to slot restriction. Airlines would not give up or add additional slots due to what's already assigned. There is no point of having 2 aircrafts if 1 would do, given the comparison of same seat amounts, same cost per seat with 2 planes vs 1 plane, only difference would be the c...

The issue isn't 747's dome space issue, it is more of the engine fuel consumption. Mind you, 747 is originally designed as a freighter only, and the elevated cockpit area helped with nose loading, PAX 747 is actually an after thought (ask Mr. Joe Sutter himself!), A380 is the original design as a PA...
