This mega engine order will need the financial support of the respective air frame manufacturers and nerves of steel, so conflict for Boeing with the 787 and GE for the A380.

If EK considers Boeing meddling results in a soft (or no) GE offer for the A380 and / or an uneven playing field for GE/RR on the 787, what drama can be expected?


I was not aware that Boeing or Airbus financed engines, even on planes they made. Are you sure this is true, or do you mean something else?

Both A & B finance complete aircraft, including engines, through various wholly-owned and joint venture entities.

I was wondering the same thing. Then I came across this. (I tried embedding it but failed miserably. If anyone can explain how that would be greatly appreciated.)

I'd be a little disappointed if we don't see one of those time-lapse videos of this being painted. I really enjoy seeing those.

I assume you will be able to see videos when the ANA frames gets delivered. Their is usually a video showing parts of the assembly process and painting. The frame has been moved to the paint shop, give it one or two weeks and you will see a picture with the result.

Buy the way MSN250 to be EK A6-EVE for EK has been delivered according to skyliner it is #10 this year

Edit: weather in Frankfurt would be perfect right now for a roll-out. In Hamburg? I am not so sure... Maybe they did it already tonight and used some Spotlights (you can see one in the picture above)
