Re: Updated: Qantas saying it is almost ready to select Project Sunrise aircraft

I wonder if a MTOW-increased 787-10 can be considered for Project Sunrise. I think if Boeing managed to bump 787-10 to around 280t it could be able to do it much more efficiently than A350-1000.

It depends on the hub they plan to use. No problem for the aircraft on PKX-JFK but I am not sure CAAC will grant it that route. There is a big problem for CAN-JFK; I am not sure how profitable the route will be after the payload hits in order to make it work. CAN-JFK-CAN would be absolutely impossi...

I totally agree. B787-10 is also a good option for their long-haul premium fleet. Given how low the density JL uses, B78J has more than enough range.

Re: CAAC ground all 737 MAX in China(require confirmation)

If a Chinese operated 737-8 falls out of the sky in the near future, people are going to ask why it was flying after the recent two disasters. Plus it is the airlines that are loosing money; It costs nothing for CAAC. However, if another 737-8 falls, CAAC will take the blame. It's not hard to under...

Re: Rumour: Boeing to increase 787-9 MTOW by 2.5 tonne

Well with a 274,000kg TOW and 86,000kg of block fuel aboard, that meant DL188 had a ZFW of 188,000kg. Subtract the DOW (say ~140,000kg to account for catering and such and I'm probably still overestimating) that means it was lifting 48,000kg of payload - 22,000kg more than UA807 was carrying IAD-PE...

Re: Rumour: Boeing to increase 787-9 MTOW by 2.5 tonne

Real world data ≠ The upper limit. Your largest confusion is here. SQ configured its A359 with 253 seats not because A359 couldn't fly longer with higher pax, but because they chose to do so. SQ chose to put only C and PY in A359ULR not because A359ULR can't carry more than 160 pax, but because O L...

Re: Rumour: Boeing to increase 787-9 MTOW by 2.5 tonne

https://i.imgur.com/6jvwBi8.png Thank you! If you compare 789 and 359 on SFO-SIN: A359: 207 passengers + 0.58t cargo B789: 215 passengers + 3.23t cargo Let's assume each passenger plus bags is 100kg and replace cargo with passengers: A359: 207 + 6 = 213 passengers B789: 215 + 32 = 248 passengers So...

Re: Rumour: Boeing to increase 787-9 MTOW by 2.5 tonne

Now this is even longer, for ICN-ATL (7153mi, 6215nmi). On April ICN-ATL, with 94% pax load factor, carried 8.65 tons of cargo. So the real data suggests that Delta A359 carries more and flies longer than you claim. Thanks for the data! I corrected myself in this thread (may have been deleted) that...
