Re: a MTOW increase on 787-10 to compete with A359?

Although it there was an intrensic performance issue, surely Qatari Al would have said something about it? Although suggesting an NEO is on the way could make airlines defer orders until that is available.

Re: Boeing Lineup Circa 2025 - Where do they go Next

I think Boeing definitely needs some 'new tech' in addition to the 787, as the current lineup is dated in its origins. A 7K7/797 would be an excellent start but the concern is over the B777X and its ability to compete with the lighter competition. Hopefully new engine tech on all models will maintai...

Before this order was placed AA had 58 options for the 787. Assuming that they have converted 47 options into firm orders there is 11 left. There was another 28 options added to this order so there should be a total of 39 options in total left. For more refer to http://nyc787.blogspot.com.au/ -----...
