i fail to understand your analogy.
Why would they revert to a 65+ year plane that has been thru every sort of upgrade over the neo which is a 30 year old model that just received its first minor enhancement.
Well, because believe it or not, the 737 is every bit as competitive as the 320 series. The 737-10 will be extremely efficient.
Yes, we know the 321 has a little bit of an advantage on the longest routes with a bit more range, but the 737-9/10 can fly across country without issue (doing it every day) and can hold their own against the 320 series. There are quite a few instances where the 737 is more efficient than the 320 series — depends on the specific mission.
Older doesn’t mean ‘less good’. Bottom line is that they are neck and neck.
Doesn’t make sense to invest in an obsolete aircraft that will hopefully be replaced by a NSA I’m the next 10 years hopefully if Boeing ever decides to quit being lazy and pandering to its shareholders and becomes a cutting edge manufacturer again. They already have the 321neo why would the 737max10, 20,30 whatever you want to call it. Just posturing for better price from Airbus IMO.
