RE: Airlines Reinstating First Class (KLM,...? )

KLM might not offer all aisle access; you have to compare the size of the seat.

I.E. JAL offers all aisle seats; but the seat is 180cm and a bit.
KLM offers a 220cm bed. Hence no place for an aisle to the enclosed seat.

If Boeing doesn't put a customer code on the aircraft papers it makes it the same as an other 787-8 thus making it easier to certify and register.

Besides, I don't think Boeing allows so many options as a switch in a different direction as before.

RE: Longest E190 Route?

I think there is an EMB190 available with a MTOW of something like 50.000-51000kg.

reasonable empty weight of 28000-29000kg + 100 pax&bags for an ZFW around 38000-39000 = 11000kg of fuel
burn around 1750kg/hr gives you 6:30 endurance.

based on 50.000-39000/1750.
