Re: Boeing 797 Discussion Thread - 2018

Maybe Boeing should focus on a circular, practical, smaller low cost fuselage that also can help them in the huge up to 220 seats / 2000NM segment effectively, before they get beaten even worse there. In general niches are for niche players. http://i191.photobucket.com/albums/z160/keesje_pics/Boein...

Re: Boeing 797 Discussion Thread - 2018

The bigger issue for a P2F will be, as it is with the 777, that the lightweight floor will not support cargo containers and will have to be replaced. With a strengthened, heavier floor. Not impossible, but quite a bit of work and expense.

Re: E195-E2 vs. 737MAX7

I am sure the E2, A220, and MRJ will bring costs for 100 to 130 seat airliners to the range of mainline jetliners. But will these aircraft with a 58 inch GTF beat out-CASM a MAX7 with 20 to 50 more seats and a 68 inch LEAP? By enough to make the MAX7 obsolete? I doubt it.
