Re: Emirates renegotiating 777X order

What a change in this thread in 72 hours.

From A350 breathing its final breath under the unbeatable 777x and now everything only gloomy for the 777x.

As I understand it 777x still have better engines to compensate for is more heavy frame.

I am sure both will have a life.

Re: Boeing 787 deferred production cost watch

I can't believe we have had a year of arguing over a number that tells investors more about Boeing's situation in 2011 than its situation today. The deferred production cost that remains today is an artifact of Boeing's massive screwup in designing the 787 production process, a screwup which had mo...

Re: Boeing delays 777-8X entry into service

With the delays of B778 the A35K getting closer or beyond in both efficiency and what it can handle.

Second late 2020s A350 will get a NEO treatment killing 778.

If the decision is made in 2027 I can imagine that the A350 is close getting neo. With another 10% improvement that would give a quit normal layout of the seatmaps.
