Re: Boeing CEO's Comments On Their Next Airplane

When full autonomous has become standard, certainly before 2035, the capacity of the US freeway system will hugely increase. It is a system which reaches about everywhere, it has no grade crossings, and door to door times will easily outclass regional trains. Distances over a 1000 miles will still ...

I'm skeptical the A350F forced Boeing's hand. Maybe it influenced the timing, and certainly it will influence the actual sales prices. Considering how significant of a role freighters have played in Boeing's widebody sales for decades, and in particular for the 777, it has been my assumption from t...
