Interesting, will that be the WN tail number as well?
First time hearing these would be 72XX airplanes for naming.

Do you have any explanation as why there is a kind of initial cold welcome for the 787-10 At over 210 orders before Entry Into Service it appears airlines are excited. Other than the 787-8, -9, and A350-9 I am trying to think of an existing widebody model that has entered service with more orders. ...Jump to post
Saj Ahmed at Strategic Aero Research and Daniel Tseng at Seeking Alpha both claimed the 787 was a "done deal" with Emirates over the past year. Once Boeing announced a production rate increase, more both within and without a.net started feeling that EK (amongst others) had chosen the 787 ...Jump to post
Something smells fishy here... Frontier can't sustain that level of growth. That's what some a.netters said when Frontier ordered 80 x Neo family at the Paris Air Show in 2011.

Not blind hate... Clearly warranted when Boeing’s plan to run their competition to the ground by influencing US gov policy is failing. Anyhow, congrats to MS & BBD.

...The 77X is coming to replace the 777-300-ERs on a 1-for-1 basis. That doesn't fit with 787-10 suits 83% routes and 787-10's impeccable economics comment. 787:777 ratio should be 80:20, going forward. Another hypothesis/opinion/theory. EK and RR are the winners.

There are no takeoff tests performed with the flaps retracted. There are warnings though if a takeoff is attempted with flaps not in a takeoff position. Same thing will apply to the folding wing tips. No takeoff or inflight testing with the tips folded. Warnings if a takeoff is attempted with the t...Jump to post
I could be mistaken, but didn't Boeing at program launch said something like it can fly/take off with the wing tips folded or missing completely ? As the first commercial aircraft with this feature it would be wise to plan very conservatively to that regard. Some warning at take off would of course...Jump to post
Don't underestimate this EK-Airbus thing is a two way street. EK without A380s isn't EK. If EK orders no more A380s, eventually A380s will overfly Dubai. And that's not the plan..

If Boeing goes for a flat 2-3-2 cross section, a bigger flat container design might be considerated retaining commonality with the widely used AKH / LD3-45 series. A container that fits A320's but can use the extra space of a wider NMA fuselage too, opening up extra revenue potential for Cargo. htt...Jump to post

What is the production rate for the 777 at the moment? Five per month as of August 2017, though once the 777X enters the line, the effective delivery rate will be 3.5 per month as the 777X frames will be allowed additional time to complete, effectively negating 1.5 slots per month.

What in the world are you on about in the 2nd part of your response there? The point I was making was that you made it seem like the 778 would have a severe fuel burn disadvantage on short hops vs an aircraft like an A350.

You guys act like the 778 would be the worlds worst aircraft for a 3-4 hour flight. The 778 will be lighter than the 77W since it's a smaller plane and NZ is already using that aircraft for flights like that. I don't think short hops are a deal breaker at all for this competition, it's going to com...Jump to post
