|Quoting FLY2HMO (Thread starter):
I don't remember ever hearing a freighter version being a possibility. Would it hurt the 777F sales if they did a 787F?
|Quoting Zvezda (Reply 4):|
The B787F would have much better operating costs,
|Quoting Brendows (Reply 1):|
They're not in the same league.
|Quoting FLY2HMO (Reply 5):|
True, but wouldn't the low operating costs of a high MTOW 787 offset the shorter range penalty compared to the 777F, even if the 787 has to make a stop for fuel?
|Quoting AndrewUber (Reply 8):|
cutting a hole in a composite fusleage to install a cargo door may get interesting....
|Quoting Zvezda (Reply 9):|
About the only parts from a B787-8 that would be needed for a B787F would be the wings, nose, and empennage. The rest of the fuselage and the undercarriage would be different.
My guess is that any B787Fs would be purpose built.
