Re: What's going to happen after the 787/a350 orderbooks are completed?

Keep in mind that while 767, 340, and 772 replacements are wrapping up, there are a bunch of 330CEO and 77E (330ceo are still produced, last 77E are about 6 years old) aircraft that will need to be replaced in the next decade. The 77W will turn 20 in less than 4 years. That is great news for the A35...

320NEO is a couple of rows smaller than they’d like. 321NEO has engine reliability issues. They’re waiting to see how MAX and NEO do comparatively. It’s Boeing’s order to lose when they do make one. The MAX grounding could effect things depending on how drawn out it ends up being.
