In terms of passenger capacity the proposed 787-10 is comparable to the 777-200ER, A350-900 and A340-500. At 300-310 passengers in three class seating, it it not comparable to the 380 seat A340-600.
uhm, first you say this, then...
|Quoting Widebodyphotog (Reply 85):|
Actually using comparable airline configurations the 787-10 cabin area allows a bit more available seats than currently in service 777-200's. At eight abreast actual service configurations would range from 240 at the low end, i.e. NH, to 280 in three class seating. Nine abreast economy cabins would put that figure to over 310 in a typical three class arrangement. With a generic three class seating layout, using nine abreast economy, 787-10 would accommodate up to 340. The flexibility of being able to use reasonably comfortable seats in nine abreast even allows several options for four class seating to potential 787-10 customers in similar arrangements to what NH is using on its 777-300ER's, although with about 14% less area available for seats.
You say this??
i'm confused, your second statement is absolutely correct and thus your first isn't. As i will proove below the 787-10 only has around 35 seats less than the 773ER
|Quoting N1120A (Reply 78):|
In the real world, that 300-310 actually translates to 240-250 and only if they do 9Y
Please look below
Assuming the B787-10 will be 20 feet longer than the B787-9 (as the B787-9 is 20 feet longer than the B787-8), then the cabin floor areas are:
B787-9: 257.4 sq meters
A350-900: 262.9 sq meters
A340-500: 275.7 sq meters
B777-200: 279.0 sq meters
B787-10: 291.0 sq meters
A340-600: 314.2 sq meters
B777-300: 330.4 sq meters
As you can clearly see the 787-10 will have a floor area only 23 square meters less than the A346, and in a 9Y
configuration we're talking around 20 seats less than the A346. Let us assume(Could someone be so kind to provide real data) that the A343s cabin floor area is 260sq meters(the a343 is a little samller than the 772ER) the 787-10 would clearly not be suitable, however the 787-9 would! If someone doesn't understand my reasoning, feel free to ask, or correct me if there is a mistake
