Re: Project Sunrise Approved - Pilot Agreement or Not

If QF wants a A350-1000-sized frame, why would they downsize to a 77L? They specifically chose 35K over 359. The A350-1000 was selected due to having longer range. Assuming no fuel limits and both being ULR models the A350-1000 can fly 500nm further with the same payload. If the A350-900 was a quar...

Re: 787 vs A350 range

Czech airlines A333 has DOW (dry operating weight) 126t and it is almost 19 years old ship. A339 DOW(OEW) would be around 130t but it always depends on seat, galley, lavatory configuration. But still 5,3-5,4t fuel burn per hour with 40t payload on 12h routs sounds rather optimistic for me!

Qantas could take 779 as interim solution and after 778 deliver it can relocate it to other routes where will be more ecconomical. Except US east coast and europe can by covered by 787.
