Re: US3 and the 777X, only a matter of time?

I don't see any US3 airline ordering 77X anytime soon. DL: already has the A350-900. I can see them taking A35K if they need a larger aircraft. AA: current plan is to replace 772s with 789s, and AA could also order 78Js. AA may not look for a 77W replacement until the early 2030s - who knows what a...

It doesn't seem like it's worth the risk to remove pilots from the equation. Their salary is a relatively small component of the overall cost of a flight. Let's be really generous and assume a $300k average salary for a long-haul pilot. At 1000 hours of flying per year, that's $300/hour/pilot to fl...
