Re: B747-400 Pax vs. F

Boeing kept the shorter upper deck on the 747-400F and 747-8F because the shorter upper deck allows more taller pallets in the main deck. Pallets and containers have to be shorter to fit under the flight deck in the front of the plane. There is only a small galley, single lavatory, 6 seats and two b...

Re: Boeing to accelerate 787 production, increases accounting block

Bottom line is that the deferred cost have to remain, the battery issue got killed so something had to take its place, enter the unreliability of parts, now we move to the deferred cost. Now if something else can start screwing up the 787 we can move on from the deferred cost, but until then..........

Perhaps, but even at $16m per plane, the amount owed by each frame remaining in the block increases with each delivery. It needs to more than double.
