I disagree on how much emphasis you are putting in a claimed EIS date.
The history of both Airbus and Boeing on EIS dates should tell you that it at best a hope.
The B787 had an initial Announced EIS Date. Was missed by many years.
The A350 initial announced concept with an EIS was botched so bad that they went back to the drawing board and came up with an entirely new A350 Concept with a new EIS. That was missed as well.
The A380 had an initial EIS, and was missed by years.
The A380F had an initial EIS, and was never produced even though it had a sizable number of orders.
The B77X had an intial EIS, and is currently years late.
If there is one thing I am reasonably sure of... That its most likely that the claimed EIS date for the A350F is likely wrong as well. That does not make it a lie. It's just a projection.
I have not posted in this thread in a long time. My last post said something like I wish Airbus the best with the A350F. However, I'm not sure that it will work out economically. Time will tell. Note that I'm also not sure that an B77X-F will work out economically as well. I believe that both the A350F and B77XF are gambles. But, business is about taking educated gambles.
Have a great day,
I would agree with all this.
The only way they make 2025 EIS is if 350F is not a custom length, which would not be the craziest idea.
