Being a 40 year old design is no disadvantage in itself.

RE: Could The 787 Have Been Built To Fly Faster?

The speed of the A380, B787, A350 of M.84-.85 represents the current technology limit of speed at best specific range. Any higher speed would have a specific range impact which is not accepted by the market. Technically a speed of M.9-.92 would be possible at about 10-20% higher fuel burn.

RE: Boeing Reports New Cost Increases On 787 Programme

Guys, the more interesting question is which cost level they achieve. If they break even in late 2015 on LN0300, the law of the learning curve says that another doubling of production is required to achieve the same reduction in cost. It is no linear thing. The numbers Boeing gave on cost reduction ...

Otherwise I cannot explain why anyone would order a -100B when a -200 was available. IranAir and Saudia (later Sudian Airlines) did not explicitly ...

Long Range Cruise of the B787 is nearly always between Mach .84 and .855. Only if the aircraft flies at very low weights it drops below .8. "Very low weights" means empty weight plus two buckets of fuel, so nothing that you see on FlightAware. If for any reason the maximum altitude is restricted to ...

A 220-240 seat singel aisle, configured to hold only 180 people in a <acronym title="Lacsa (Costa Rica)">LR</acronym>-config, would end up having some excess cargo capacity, and MTOW-capacity. Hence, with some body tanks, such an aircraft could go quite far. Having a 5000nm route with a 180 seat sin...

RE: Boeing Studying 757 Replacement

I recently prepared an overview of currently available aircraft. The seating is single class, while not highest density. The range refers gives the reasonable spread, from lightest to heaviest weight variant. Of course, you can fly <acronym title="Newark - Liberty International (EWR / KEWR), USA - N...

RE: Boeing Studying 757 Replacement

The notorious B757-replacement. The gap exists, and is rather huge. Aircraft-design wise, it is a difficult area where a single aisle is not well suited, and a twin aisle neither. That's probably why the gap exists. However, if a dedicated aircraft is build with newest technology, it would beat or a...

Some commentor on Scott's page said that for <acronym title="Emirates (United Arab Emirates)">EK</acronym> freight revenue per t is one third of passenger revenue. Hence: the A380 hauls 150 Pax than the B779 (approximate weight 15t), than the B779 has to haul 45t more cargo than the A380 to get simi...
