Now that the 787 is only 2 years away from entering into service, I was wondering about the economics of the 767-300ER compared to the 787-8. Does anybody have any detailed comparison between these two models?
I would assume that any airliners ordering the 767-300ER would get a huge discount and with the 787 being sold out until 2011, could some airlines benefit from buying a 767-300ER while waiting to see if the 787-8 does when in service?
I know the 767 has lower operating cost than the A330, but how would this be compared against the 787? For an airline with little or no cargo maybe it would make sense to buy brand new 767 airplanes for now?
