Re: Lets say Airbus kill the A330neo...

The A330NEO will definitely end up selling far less than expected. But it's not exactly going to be a failure it will just need to be replaced earlier than expected. It will probable break even due to its relatively low development cost. The A330NEO's will simply get sold at a much lower profit marg...

Re: A330-800 out, B787-9 in at Hawaiian? -Leeham

From past A.net postings it seems the A330NEO is worse than the CEO below 2000nm. It is slightly worse than the 787 on 2000-4000nm missions, and it becomes far worse at over 4000nm. DL's use case scenario of TATL has the A330NEO flying 3000-4000nm routes. However for HA, it seems the 2000-4000nm &q...

The 737 does not need to get replaced for 10+ years. It is actually superior to the A320 family on short trips due to lower weight and superior to the E2 due to higher capacity. The 737's narrower cross section is not a problem on 1 or 2 hour flights which is the bread and butter of the 737. This al...

Re: Boeing officially forms program office to flesh out 797 plans

Let's take two 797 designs, a 250m2 wing and a 150m2 wing but with the same fuselage on both. If both wings are of the same AR, there is no chance of the 150m2 wing burning less fuel on any route.

Re: Why has Boeing ceded the 777-200 / 300 replacement to Airbus ?

Those numbers are off, we already carry 280 pax plus cargo over HKG-EWR (flight plan distance is around 7800-8100 nm) with less than 90% of that fuel burn landing with about 2 hrs of fuel, and not at MTOW. If the 787-9 was right up there wil payload and range, why didn’t it get a mention by Boeing ...

Re: Why has Boeing ceded the 777-200 / 300 replacement to Airbus ?

The thread stated that Boeing had ceded the 772/3er market to Airbus. Since countless posts have shown that to be a completely false premise,all that's left is an AvB slanging match.

Both the A359 and 789 have sold more than the 787-10 since it launched (counting orders actually booked).

Re: Why has Boeing ceded the 777-200 / 300 replacement to Airbus ?

One thing I have noticed so far is that the larger 787-10 and A350-1000 are not selling as well as their smaller peers. The A350-1000 was launched on December 1 2006. It as 169 orders. That is only 15 aircraft per year. The 787-10 was launched on June 13 2013 at the Paris air show. It has 171 order...
