Again I’m just putting this out there. It could just be marketing fluff. But for someone like him not to complain the way Clark is complaining it’s interesting that’s all. And we all know AAB can kick a fuss.
Can you please tell me what he meant exactly?
20% on the same trip? 20% per seat? What is the reference stage length? Depending on what this number is based on it could be really mediocre (almost below expectations) to good. Also current 777, in his fleet or compared to the last of the line, or compared to the first 77W (the current one) that came off the line?
I won’t read much into it but he said 18-20% more efficient than their 777s in his fleet. Not much else but he just said it.
Also thing is general maybe fuel burn might be where they want but as smartplane pointed out there’s much more than that. There’s performance wear, how does performance change with more usage? Etc. Which really affects costs. Also high and hot performance. This is the data he says Emirates will have not seen so. I don’t know
