You neglect to mention the (at least) 30 more Y seats from 10-abreast seating vs 9 abreast seating in the A35J.
And as per load factor, and 80% load factor on yearly average means that there are plenty of times where the plane is filled to the last seat.
What is the yield are those seats going to achieve ?
History has shown that you can replace 744 with a 77W, yet we are to believe that an A350-1000 which is nearly exactly the same size of the 77W with much lower operating costs cannot do the job. I just cannot get over the logic (or lack of) some people apply here.
What I find amazing is there were MANY operators that replaced the 744 with the 77W profitably as many of the passengers they dropped were the low yield cheap fares. The lower operating costs of the 77W more than made up for the loss of revenue with fewer seats giving operators better overall yield.
Now I have stated I think the A350-1000 would be a very good 350 seat replacement for the LH 744 and A346 routes that need 350 seat aircraft, and I am being told it is too small. The opposite view is they should operate a larger aircraft with higher costs.
Par for par, which is the only thing that matters here, the 779 is significantly (as in more than a 10% total seats difference) larger than the A35J in a Lufthansa configuration. That's just a fact that no amount of squealing will turn invalid.
You do realize the ZFW of an A350-1000 with 350 passengers loaded is about the same weight as a 779 DOW ?
I innocently challenged your statements. I made every effort to do so with humility, respect and admiration. In return, passive aggressive, sarcastic, snark remarks are thrown my way. This is a place to debate, discuss, challenge, educate, learn, and inform.
I am disappointed that you misread, misinterpreted and misrepresented my responses to your posts on this thread.
To challenge the statements you MUST have a different idea of what the fuel burn will be, if you don’t think it will be different we would be agreement.
All I asked you for is what you idea of the fuel burn will be, I am asking you to justify the claim you were making. I didn’t “misread, misinterpreted and misrepresented” your post, I wanted you to justify the position you took by stating what you think the fuel burn will be.
It is a very reasonable request, as you raised the point.
