Aircraft Perfomance

Wed Aug 06, 2003 1:51 am

They're different, and they're many. But suppose I was to ask, what is the best performing aircraft of, say, Intra-Europan (longish haul) flights, US transcontinentals, Transatlantics, and Trans-pacifics? Is there, in your opinion, any one plane that could could satsisfy all airliners' needs?
My best bet is the xxxxxxxx, but I'm not saying.

It is going to be non-stop debate on performance issues. My solution is to ask all aircraft to fly at same time and let them all fly through the high density clouds or some stormy weathers, then we can see the result.  Smile
