Re: Emirates: 777X further delayed until 2022, considering to convert more orders to 787

Why are people acting like nobody will ever need that size of aircraft in this industry again. Is it needed now? Of course not. But this talk of cancelling the program. If they didn’t cancel the 747-8 program, I’m sure this program still has life in it. Somebody said the aircraft offers little effi...

Re: Rumor: CX to walk away from 777X order

CX will probably delay the 77X. They WONT walk away from it. This plane is to be their new Flagship aircraft with their next generation on board products. I think they are more concerned with avoiding bankruptcy than deploying the next generation of on board products. Any products already designed ...

Re: Can Boeing make a great come back in 2020?

Yeah. It's bizarre to see just how many people here want Boeing to go bust. Not only it won't, it'll be a bigger and better company after the MAX saga comes to an end, and it will happen sooner than some people here think. By June 2020 many people around the World will be flying MAXes again. Lets b...

What are the chances of seeing solar panels on the wing to generate some in-flight charging? Probably not effiecent enough for thrust but how about for powering the cabin?

I gotta say, I’m really not a fan of the A330neo’s winglets. It looks like they forgot to bolt on the other half of it. I prefer the look of the A330ceo. Agreed, but it does look amazing from the inside though https://i1.wp.com/aviationanalyst.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2018/12/img_4925.jpg?resize=75...
