Re: A350-1000 versus B777-300ER

The A35K is around 22% lower fuel burn on a like for like basis compared to the 77W so fits in entirely with the 20-25% assessment of the A359/787 over the 777-200. Fred You guys are selling the 777-200/200ER short by a significant margin. The A359/787 has a 20-25% over the 762/3 and 744; the 772 i...

Re: A350-1000 versus B777-300ER

The 777-300ER/200LR did feature new generation GE90, bigger wing with raked wing tips and many more improvements allowing for extra range, mtow and efficiency. It's called the second generation of the 777 for a reason. Because of these all improvements, the 777-9 and A350-1000 only give around 10-1...
