RE: Emirates Dreamliner?

I don't think Emirates is considering the 787, at least, not seriously. It is also not consistent with what they've been saying all these past years. I think they just want to know people's perception of this new aircraft. What do they like about it, or why do they think it is better than previous a...

Oh, I misunderstood your question then... Emirates (and Qatar) ordered the "original" A350-1000 but asked for more range (and payload). They ordered it however, knowing it couldn't replace the 77W in the far end of its range enveloppe. Now Airbus updated the airplane, giving it more range and other ...

I can definitely see them ordering more, especially 77W... The A380 is covered until 2017, I don't see the need to order more now, as they can just do it as well in 2 years from now, and have a clearer view on their needs. It's not like Airbus is going to sell 100s of them in the coming 2 years (tak...
