You are making pointless statements.
'T factor in the 744 Freighter sales without factoring in the 777F sales and other 777 sales, for that matter. You want to compare 773ER to 744 pax version, fine. Otherwise, you are just being argumentative. And since the offering of the 773ER, Boeing has booked 108 orders with more pending for it, and barely sold any 744 pax versions in that time. And many airlines are using those 773ERs now in place of former 744 routes, or expanding their fleet and using those 773ERs where airlines in the past would have used a 747. So obviously they know something you don't about revenue and profit between the two models.
And as I said, but you are too dense to understand, before the 773ER and 346, there WAS NO PLANE NEAR THE SIZE of the 744. I didn't say either plane was as big, or a seat for seat replacement. But they are nearer in size than what came before, which is the whole point. When choosing between a 343 or 772, you may need a 744 even if you don't need 420 seats, because 300 seats is just too few, but with the 346 and the 773ER, you might not need the 744. There are plenty of 744s flying routes that don't need all that capacity because the next step down at the time they bought them was too small. The 773ER fills a gap that the 744 was covering but being used wrong for, and airlines are using it that way.
Again, you are arguing false points. This isn't "debatable" but I can easily point out why you are wrong, as I did. It's not the same thing as debate. And as I said, you can choose not to believe you are wrong. But again, since JAL and ANA both have big 744 fleets, and the 773ER lists for MORE money than the 744 and most definitely selling for more, you'd think if you were right about all you say, airlines, especially JAL and ANA, wouldn't be buying the 773ER, but instead would be buying more 744s for better commonality and higher profits.
But I guess you are right, and they are stupid, and throwing away millions upon millions upon millions of dollars both at purchase time and through operations.
- Why am I being so direct toward you? because you personally went through my posts line by line and contradicted them with mostly nonsense or irrelevant information. go bother somebody else.
Of all the things to worry about... the Wookie has no pants.
