Hello. I was just wondering having read other recent posts, which aircraft would make more sense to find a replacement for first? The 737 or 777?
They are both doing well in sales, but the prospects for the A-market and other early 777's appears to be due to experience some dwindling once the 787 (less so) and A350 (more so) really get going as alternatives (for some variants).
On the otherhand, would a 737 replacement mass seller be a better bet to gain a headstart against a future A320 replacement or can this market afford to wait? Indeed, would be best to see what Airbus offers first or not?
Additionally, to what extent would the decision be dependent upon the go-ahead or otherwise for a 747Adv? I know it may make matters more pressing towards the 777, but the -200LR and -300ER seem to be doing well, although they will obviously not be suitable as direct replacements for the other early generation 777s for all carriers.
Your thoughts and comments are much appreciated. Thank you.
