To be honest this assumption that the proposed 797 and A321NEO compete directly in the same market is a bit of a stretch. So how many purchases of the A321 over the A320 is due to the additional pax and not related to range? A321NEO now provides increased capacity with the range only the A320 achie...Jump to post

OK we're straying from the topic.. why is the A350 so expensive.. parts, labor, process, transport????? If parts and labor are equal between the 787 and A350, that leaves process and transport.

I think this is largely a US issue. I find that Americans, in general, care less about grooming standards than many other western countries around the world.

That approach favors the A350 panels design as the entire section can be jigged. The moving line works much better with barrels as it avoids the large jigs.

My point was the 787-9 has 4 doors which should allow 440 seats, but the FAA says only 381 are allowed.
