EVA Interested In 787-10/777X

Thu Apr 12, 2012 12:41 am

Shortly after signing up for a new batch of 77Ws, EVA Air is looking further still, with a possible order for 787-10s and 777Xs, saying that the 747-8 is not particularly attractive to the carrier.

(No indication yet of what might replace the MD11Fs, but the 7772LRF must be the most likely.)

So, a third likely customer (4th, if you include Qantas) for the 787-10 ...

The 787-10X is going to be very hard to resist as a regional aircraft for almost any Asian carrier (CX possibly being the exception with its focus on wide seats even on regional).

Even at 8-abreast, the 787-10X would still be a good 333 and 772A replacement for CX for regional and certain Aussie flights.

No surprise to hear that. I saw 747-8i as almost dead when it was born, and the 777X will put the final nail in the coffin.
How many possible 747-8i customers could there be left?
SQ,MI,MH,CX,KA,CA,CZ,MU,KE,OZ,QF,NZ,FD,JQ,3K,5J,IT,AI,IC,QR,SK,LF,KL,AF,LH,LX,OS,SR,BA,SN,FR,WF,1I,5T,VZ,VX,AC,NW,UA,US,

Would any airline in the world flying long haul not be interested in this aircraft?

These birds are mainly for BR's North America ops and later on cross-strait flights with mainland China.
I am sure they do interested in 77X for a long time, just as a number of other airlines CX, EK and so forth.
