If you've seen the Q3 earnings reports for U.S corporations, they quite frankly suck. The bubble of the 1990s is bursting. The U.S, and by extension the European economies, are going to have if not a recession a bit of slower growth these days. What do you guys think about traffic growth? Because traffic growth is the only reason to buy an A3XX or 747X. Therefore, I believe that Boeing can introduce its 787 in ten years (and I think that this estimate doesn't take into account the effect of CAD on prototype construction).
The 787 will be introduced at the right time for airlines.
This unfortunate recession will be bad for the A3XX (which has its merits) But technology will advance allowing Boeing to exert its massive experience and make an incredible VLA.
Any thoughts on my forecast?
