Re: Emirates considering order changes - Airbus A380 for A350, Boeing 787 for 777-9

It's basically like B767F right? They are still being built, but nobody ordered the Passengers version. Now, even though B777-9 is slightly smaller than B747-8i. BA could actually carry the same amount of people in B777-9 with B747-400 configs. So, B747-8i would be redundant. Especially since they ...
