Re: Emirates: 777X further delayed until 2022, considering to convert more orders to 787

309 is a bad number for such program. Admittedly 310 is better...and so is 610...but unless you are privy to the actual 777X R&D, testing and production cost figures, 309 being 'bad' is quite a wobbly proposition... Faro It's bad because of its specifications. 2 different aircraft which only fe...

Re: Emirates: 777X further delayed until 2022, considering to convert more orders to 787

This is a generalization and I don’t mean to put words in people’s mouth. But I thing people misrepresent the industry wide-body growth by calling it downsizing. The 787 and a350 are efficient and arguably have some of the best profitability for their manufacturers and operators alike. Airlines that...

Re: Norwegian Air Cancels Orders For 92 737 MAXs and 5 787s

This is an incredible shock. Said no a.netter ever. Boeing can draw out compensation negotiations and pay to creditors after Norwegian has been liquidated. At least that way creditors will get something. Fully agree with this. The only reason there is a law suit is because Boeing won’t play ball wi...

Re: Qatar CEO: no new Airbus or Boeing deliveries until 2022

The announcement that Qatar plans to take their 777-9's and 777-8's as planned is big news. Bad day for all those predicting that the 777X would be cancelled. :stirthepot: But will they take all? EK will they take all? With 778 more or less dead in the market if not Boeing makes an 778F, the 779 ne...

Re: Qatar CEO: no new Airbus or Boeing deliveries until 2022

Imo they have overordered. 60 777Xs was always way too many.. At most they need half that. I expect some to be cancelled and/or converted to 787s. Depends on how you look at it. They have 48 77Ws and 10 77Ls they’ve ordered 50 779s and 10 778s. So if it’s a replacement program then they haven’t. If...

Re: Boeing to close 777x and 787 order before month-end

I agree that ANA is unlikely, with a new 787 order placed earlier this year. EVA and Turkish are both 787 and 777f customers that have shown interest in the 777x. Ethiopian too if they are actually able to pay for an order... Saudia could also be included, but I would guess that they are already the...

Re: Reuters: Boeing considering 757-Plus and 767-X

Wouldn't it be cheaper to just launch the 787-8 frighter and then maybe focus on making the pax 788 lighter? And then launch a new 737/757 replacement that will compete with the a320 size market? I still do not get the 767 size obsession. Right now the 787-9 is the sweet spot for design and product...

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 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...
