This is exactly it what I mean!
It is simply awesome!
Quite frankly, it represents the future for me. A new type of small aircraft...
I can see 1.200 airframes potential sales until 2040, shared with Boeing maybe?
Different scenarios, and flexibility use
American Airlines "transcon" 6 /hours mission
Lufthansa 8 hours / transatlantic mission
Chinese market / 1hour mission
They can't go wrong...
Of course Airbus could do an NMA, they have resources, technology.
Not only, they are also in comfort in their market positions. This is way too much of an asset to launch something that is not necessarily risky for them
But I have heard/ seen no intentions in that direction.
They should, frankly
I hope they do it in at least two years.
I guess most foresee new versions of existing aircraft. A220-500...
I have heard/ seen no intentions in that direction...
But, we know they should do it, right?
I have heard/ seen no intentions in that direction and fortunately, especially for the A322neoX who is an ugliest 757 proxy concept
With the A320neo, and A321neo LR's derivative, Airbus is on top!
Climbing too high in the tree can cause a fatal fall. We've already seen this with Boeing, haven't we?
The A330s, 777's, 787's and A350 flooded the market. What does this A350ULR mean? We see the slowdown with production cut from the A330s, 777's and the 787 at a rate of 10 by a month announced...
But we are drifting away. Boeing is on the line. The discussion is if Boeing problems exaggerated, or worse than we want to believe. Inbetween weasel words I see him launching a state of the art 737 Replacement. He might need serious partners for that at this stage. Serious = Raytheon Technologies, GE, NG, GenDyn, US and Brasilian governments, Chinese government bodies (they don't want MAX and have to spend $200B in the US by 2021).
All your good arguments, cannot necessarily save Boeing from a lack of product.
Replacing 1: 1 with a new technology leaves a deficiency to be able to compete.
Remember my comment above when responding to Scbriml. It's a bullet in the foot, Keesje ...
You think so?
No matter. 737 MAX customers are waiting ...
