Topic: Economics Of The 767-300ER Compared To The 787-8?

Now that the 787 is only 2 years away from entering into service, I was wondering about the economics of the 767-300ER compared to the 787-8. Does anybody have any detailed comparison between these two models?

I would assume that any airliners ordering the 767-300ER would get a huge discount and with the 787 being sold out until 2011, could some airlines benefit from buying a 767-300ER while waiting to see if the 787-8 does when in service?

I know the 767 has lower operating cost than the A330, but how would this be compared against the 787? For an airline with little or no cargo maybe it would make sense to buy brand new 767 airplanes for now?

If the 767 has lower costs than the A330, then why has the A330 done so well in the marketplace?

Because it can carry allot more cargo.

Quote:
In comparison with the Airbus A330-200, the 767-400ER offers superior economic performance -- with at least 4 percent lower operating costs. The 767-400ER weighs 40,000 pounds less than the A330-200.

I know this is a quote from Boeing and I do not have any statement to back this up, but it makes sense. If I have understood correctly the A330-200 it has the range and Cargo capability that the 767 lacks.

of course, its a smaller, lighter plane with more range. The A330 can carry close to 400pax and its still one of the most efficient big twins out there.

except for military or cargo-converstions I doubt we will see many if any new B767 orders. With the B787 and A350(370), the B767 will be obsolete, even though it is one of the best airliners that graced the sky.

The B767(-200) came out in the early 80's, it is at least 10 years behind the A330/B764ER. Still it has the reputation of being the cheapest plane to fly long-haul and high capacity domestic ops.

Doesn't that count as being economical?

The 767 has a lower trip cost than the A330, but the A330 has a better revenue potential. In other words, a 767 is great if you're not hauling a lot of cargo or doesn't need the range of the A332.

Just a back of the envelope analysis here, but compared to 767-300ER on a 4,500nm mission, a 787-8 with 224 three class pax load, vs 218 for the 763ER, would consume about 20,000lbs less fuel and arrive at the destination 35-40 mins sooner. That's a total trip burn savings of 25% and a reduced burn per seat of 20-22%. Very significant considering that after passenger baggage. the 787 would have two more additional pallet positions available for cargo. Depending on the gross payload including cargo the total fuel burn may come out slightly more or less than a pax only payload for 767-300ER. The fuel savings are just that great...
