Re: AM Grows 787 Fleet

So Boeing is beginning to hand out cheap 787s as compensation for the MAX? Sacrificing margins on the only money-maker they currently have? Might assume that a few deals like this could help them get back to rate 14 on the Dreamliner. Offering the extra 2 Planes every month at a significantly disco...

Re: The Boeing 787-10 range: how far can it stretch its wings ?

Wouldn’t it be more logical for Emirates to take the -10 instead of -9? Seems to me it cover a lot of their routes including all Europe and they can use A350/777x for the longer routes. Or does the heat in Dubai make the capacity much lower? Speculation is that Emirates wants smaller planes (again)...

Re: Boeing whistleblower raises doubts over 787 oxygen system

Why are so many quick to rush to the defense of the same? Because based on what is known, the devise is not exclusive to the 787 therefore everyone else must be experiencing the same problem and hiding it as well. Boeing doesn't make them, Rockwell-Collins does. He should complain about them. Um......

Re: Boeing 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

Actually, it looks like Charleston is now keeping up with Everett, and they are working down their undelivered aircraft. 898 was for Suparna, and aircraft with higher line numbers than 902 are in test. Maybe Eva Air isn’t ready for 902. 902 was used in the EVA promotional video and photos. BSC post...

Re: Boeing 787 Production/Delivery Thread - 2019

Hainan/Hong Kong NTU: 2 Biman, 2 Bamboo (Gecas frames 891, 911), 4 Vistara (887, 893, 905, 931) for the moment 874 was also a Hainan group NTU, originally assigned to Suparna, now delivered to UAE Presidential Flight. And I wouldn't be surprised if 898 will also go to the UAE, as they ordered 2 in ...

Re: Boeing NMA in doubt as customers push for all new 737MAX and 757 replacement

Is anyone else actually questioning wether the FSA would be poorly timed for a pre-2030 launch date? If NMA is scraped, Boeing is either forced into FSA immediately or has to cut engineering headcount for the next 5-10 years and wait. Could this be premature from a product design and market feasibil...
