Re: A350-2000 Doable with new technologies, more potential with 787 : Bregier

I think limited range becomes much more of a problem as the aircraft gets bigger. And even at 787 size, I have to say I've been surprised by how many customers continue to choose the 787-9, and I'm sure range is the reason. I dont think this applies anymore. The growth of the worldwide market has i...

Re: A350-2000 Doable with new technologies, more potential with 787 : Bregier

One B787-10ER would be a A350 killer........one B787-10 with 7500nm would be the number 1 in the widebodies world. No it would be a waste of money. Pure fantasy on this forum. The 787-10 currently hits maximum takeoff weight with a normal payload and about 80% fuel capacity. It can only fill its fu...
