This is a nice contract for RR to win, does anyone know what the key performance differences between the GEnx and RR engines are?

Britannia (Thomsonfly) has also placed an order, not exactly sure how many though.
|Quoting TPASXM787 (Reply 22):|
Between the 787 and the A350, Boeing has been waging a P.R. war while Airbus has been quiet
|Quoting TPASXM787 (Reply 22):|
Who knows what that means. It could mean something more incredible than the 787. It could also mean that the A350 is indeed nothing more than a re-done A330, which is a nice plane, but nothing like the 787 will be.
|Quoting BoeingBus (Reply 11):|
Korea is also close in ordering the 787, according to FI. This is probably the first win for the 787 against the A350.
|Quoting Frankhenderson (Reply 24):|
Why the designation of 787-300 and 787-800? Why not start with -100 & -200? It's the same thing with the A380 - how did the come up with the dash #'s?

|Quoting BlueSky1976 (Reply 26):|
I'd imagine more info about A350 will become available during Paris Air Show. Boeing kept relatively quiet about 787 for almost a year until they were done with the design definition.
|Quoting TPASXM787 (Reply 27):|
You're not kidding....
|Quoting DfwRevolution (Reply 28):|
I think it's likely that the A350 will get a bit of a nose job, so the 787 might not have the only distinctive snout for long. Airbus mentioned an improved nose in their initial press-release, though the concept picture at the time didn't show it.
|Quoting Hamlet69 (Reply 1):|
Careful with your numbers. Some of the orders you list include options, while others do not. As it stands today, the 787 numbers should look like this:
Announced Firm Orders
First Choice: 6
Blue Panorama: 4
Vietnam Airlines: 4
Air New Zealand: 2
|Quoting MidnightMike (Reply 19):|
That would not be a very fair comment to make, the 787 has been around a lot longer than the A350....
|Quoting DfwRevolution (Reply 25):|
The SR features the Base model fuselage but with less range and rated for lower gross weights.
|Quoting Luniew (Reply 33):|
Since I fly LOT a LOT JFK-WAW-JFK I would love to see 787... But I guess the A350 will do if it comes down to it.
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 34):|
Depends if they want to upgauge, burn more fuel and pay more for the airplane or not.
|Quoting ETStar (Reply 32):|
Funny how I came across a report that stated that Ethiopian and Boeing were at a preliminary agreement for the 787s... and that further negotiations were in store...
