Good news for EK!

What is EK going to do with 93 aircraft in the 8,000 nm range?
(50 B787 & 43 A380)

Great news for Boeing!

I think SQ or BA will be the next to announce an order!

EK has been pushing Boeing to develop the 787-10 for a long time. And them being a launch customer for it makes sense. Also Boeing did a smart move by them cannabalizing the 777-200ER than let Airbus doing it.

That's pretty amazing. If EK does order the 787-10, who else will, do you think? Is this going to be a one-airline plane?

And EK's claim that the -10 would have 80% MORE cargo space than an A380 almost defies belief. How's that possible? Jesus.

Wow.

But in reality, since EK held off in Paris from ordering the A359, we have all known that this was a serious possibility. It will be interesting to see which other airlines are interested in it.

Absolutely, this is called Erosion. And it is always better for a business to erode their own product than to let a competitor do it for them!

It may eat into the sales of the B777-200ER, however if you look at the larger picture the combination of both the B777-200ER and the B787-10 will add more value to the company as a whole!

Well, I have a better question. What is EK going to do with so many aircraft?

That's like 50 or so new 777s.
50 787-10s.
possibly 20 787-9s to replace A330s.
43 A380s.
plus all those extra A340-500/-600s which don't have a definite future.

That's ALOT of aircraft.

Quoting Cruiser (Reply 5):

Well, one thing about the A380, is IT DOES HAVE LESS CARGO SPACE. Its obvious simple physics, regardless of what Airbus says. You have 2 passenger decks (one the size of a 773, the other the size of an A333) and one cargo deck (about the size of a 773). So, if you calculate how much baggage the people on an A330-300 have, and subtract it from the cargo space of a 777-300, you get the total cargo space of the A380, which is alot less than any 400+ seater I have ever seen.

One advantage for the 747-8, its cargo deck is almost equivalent to the passenger deck, which is a good ratio.

I think airlines like Delta, if it survives, might be a good candidate for the 787-10. Delta is an airline which could order large numbersof 787's to replace an aging 767 fleet. They need a larger plane, a role currently filled by the 777-200ER, but a 787-10 operated alongside 787-8's and 787-9's would be much more efficient than a large number of 787's and 8 777's. NWA might also be a good possibility, if they survive. I could also see Continental making a similar decision. That's just in the US! Other airlines which need a larger plane, but can't afford the costs of adding an entirely new family to the fleet will also look seriously at this plane.

If EK orders the 787-10, I think that the older A330 and 777s will be replaced by it. This will allow EK to operate 1 aircraft and cockpit type where 2 used to be needed. Overall, I think that the future will see the majority of the A330 and 777-200ER fleet being replaced by the 787. I do not see the A340s lasting that long either. IF the 787 turns out to be as good as predicted, then the A340s will be replaced by it also. In my opinion the future EK fleet will look like this

787-10 and other variants.
777-300ER
A380-800
747-400F

Good for EK, but they asked Boeing to develop the 787-10. That kind of put them on the spot for having to buy it once it was actually developed. I remain skeptical of EK's business plane, but I think it is much more do-able with 787 sized aircraft then 777/380 as the backbone for their fleet.

Well that was fast, lol. We only just heard from Boeing that they were going to go ahead with the -10, and we turn around and find out that they're in final negotiations. I'm surprised they wedged them so close together; I thought it was better to spread it out and extend the PR hold.

That makes the most sense, especially a decade out from now. But EK'll still have a pretty sizable fleet mix. And who knows what they'll decide to do next, lol.

I thought that was called "planned obsolescence"? Or, no, maybe "cannibalism"? Or are they one and the same? Lol.

At any rate, congrats to Boeing and EK--and all you BA shareholders, lol. This should help send the price up even higher.

I disagree. "This is what we want - now see if you can do it" is a lot different than "If you do it, we will sign". While EK may be ready to sign, they may also be waiting to see what Airbus comes back with again. Better A350 design? Better price? Etc.

Just because Boeing has relented doesn't mean that EK wouldn't still consider an Airbus alternative if it presented itself. IMHO, of course.

EK's claim that the -10 would have 80% MORE cargo space than an A380 almost defies belief. How's that possible?

1. Because the WhaleJet has such a large cross-section, the portion which tapers at the nose and tail is much longer than on an aircraft like the B787. The tapered part can't accommodate containers.
2. The WhaleJet's undercarriage consumes more than a usual length of the lower deck.

Taken together, this means that (running from the nose aft toward the tail) the WhaleJet's forward cargo hold starts later and ends sooner, then the after cargo hold starts later and ends sooner.

Boeing only announced yesterday, informally, that they will build the B787-10. Have a little patience. I'm sure we'll see orders other than just EK before the end of the year. Anyway, it's 6.5 years from EIS.

I'm questioning ATW, not the thread starter.

Not saying it won't happen, but how does ATW know this? ATW were on the same call as many other media, but nobody else has been so definitive . . . .

That was my question too. I think it's great that Boeing are commiting to the 787-10 (it sounds like a seriously capable aircraft  Smile), and it wouldn't surprise me if EK did order, but nothing that I read in the article said that EK had actually made the commitment to the 787-10.

Will EK wait and see what Airbus do with the A359HGW?

Dunno. Interesting times  Smile
