Boeing Touts 787 Maintenance Savings Versus A330

Mon Feb 21, 2005 12:10 pm

will be very interesting to see how the 787 and the A350 affect sales of the A330, which I think will slow down quite substatially....

"In fact, according to 787 Deputy Chief Mechanic Justin Hale, the company is guaranteeing mature maintenance cost savings of 32% against the A330 at year 12 of operation."

However, Boeing does not know how the aircraft will size up against the new A350, which Airbus began offering late last year, largely because the manufacturer has not released much information on that aircraft.--Loren Farrar
