Is the 747-8i going to be made of composite material like the 787. If it is going to be made of composite than what percent? If it isn't going to be composite than why not? Sorry if it's a dumb question.
|Quoting Aminobwana (Reply 4):|
The main diffrence regarding the B744 will be the incorporation of not composte related innovations of the B787, first of all the state-of-the art engines, which over all results in a wide reduction of the CASM.

Have they gotten the weight down some to get the added range close to what airlines want?
