Re: Future Heavy Freight Aircraft (777X)?

You mean other than the many claims, which neither GE nor Boeing has given us any reason to doubt, that the GE9x has 10% better cruise SFC than the latest GE90? TSFC and block fuel are not the same. You made reference to block fuel. Don’t argue for argument sake...an aircraft that’s about 12ft shor...

Re: Is the A380 the Biggest Failure in Commercial Aviation History?

The total 'grounding cost' of the Boeing 737 MAX is approaching the total development cost of the Airbus A380. :scratchchin: I agree. To this point the MAX is a stunning failure. Whether or not it will recoup all the costs incurred is a major open question. If it ends up selling 3 or 4 thousand uni...

Is the A380 the Biggest Failure in Commercial Aviation History?

They have been quite a few excellent aircraft that never really caught on in the marketplace sufficiently to make the program profitable. The L1011 comes to mind. The A346. The 764 and 753. The A310. The 737 Max may end up being a major failure, it remains to be seen. But the A380 is in a unique pos...

Re: Can the A359 Do JNB-ATL for DL With Meaningful Cargo?

I just ran some numbers through my my models and the 77L taking a 40t payload out of JNB direct to ATL would require about 309t takeoff weight (looks to be about the limit looking at the ACAPS takeoff chart) and would burn about 117t of fuel over the course of about 16:08. Assuming that the A350 we...

Re: DL to permanently retire entire 777 fleet

SA has flown the A359 JNB-JFK but the route is 409 nm shorter than JNB-ATL which is about an hour less flight time. The A359 is very good but JNB-JFK is one of the most challenging in the world. It is no disgrace it has to do a stop at CPT.

I agree, I don't think any reasonable assessment would conclude the A359 has the same payload capability of the 77L on a route like JNB-ATL. The question was can the A359 carry meaningful cargo on the route in addition to pax and bags? The fuel burn and operational benefits of the A359 are a given.
