Concerning Emirates' much awaited A350/B787 order, Clarke said evaluations were still ongoing with fifty aircraft to be ordered. He added that once a decision has been taken, the new aircraft would only arrive between 2023-25 by which time Emirates will have moved its hub from Dubai Int'l to Dubai World Central.

Not really surprising. Any remaining space at DXB has to be reserved for high capacity aircraft.

with that sort of delivery requirement there seems to be no hurry to do anything. Allows plenty of time for both A and B to refine their offerings.

Didn't EK cancel an order for A350s a while ago? I believe a couple of years ago.

Yes they did. on the basis that the airplane built (specs) was not what they had initially signed up for (c/s design). now they are doing an RFP for 50-100 mid-haul planes. it has come down to the A359 vs the B787-10. both have their +s and -s given payload/range in hot weather airport. although the general consensus is that it is Boeing's to lose, i think its a much closer affair and can go either way. ideally, EK wants either aircraft "modified" to fit exactly what it needs in terms of performance (ala A380/B778+9). neither manufacturer has so far showed inclination to do so, hence here we are.

I wonder just how different they would prefer the Airbus A359 Regional offering to be from that which SQ ordered back in 2013.

What different requirements do they have... hotter and dryer?

Because they have Airbus & Boeing who is doing it for them. In every details of the 777X, EK was there and modified and changed alot, especially the new composite wing.
Not to mention the A380 program which is surviving because of EK.

As expected, the new aircraft will not arrive before EK moves to DWC. Therefore Emirates are not in a hurry to place this order, both Airbus and Boeing have enough available delivery slots in that timeframe.

Everything to the A380 mainly, the 777-300ER seems to start on replacement and arrives in smaller numbers than the A380.

If you do not have the space and want to grow, you have to grow size instead of numbers of frames.

I don't know where that "consensus" decided that, because all I hear is that the opposite is true, due to concerns over the 787-10's performance in hot weather, so it appears that Airbus is in the lead.

And it is ridiculous to say "this is xx's to lose" line. Unless said company has a written contract, the "this is "so-and-so's" to lose" nonsense is, indeed nonsense.

I hadn't seen it confirmed before that they will be moving between 2023-25, although it was pretty much assumed.

I can see the 350 winning this with a view to increasing the fleet with 3510 & 3511's (if it is built) for regional trunk routes.

But if they switch everything to B77W/A380 for a number of years in the meantime, then either the route will accommodate that size of aircraft or it won't. They won't need smaller craft for their established markets.

That only leaves new markets to be opened with the smaller frames: Do they need 50 for that?

There is no need to place an order in 2016 for delivery that far ahead if they are going for current version 359s or 7810s.

So maybe they want a launch order discount on a new development. Say a "simple stretch" of the 359, for example. Timed to EIS after the rumoured 350-8000.

Given the timescale, 787-10X or A359X may be in play...

An "ER" version of the -10 has been considered before...maybe this is the order that makes it happen? And Boeing can roll any changes into the -9 too...

The -ER version adds weight that needs power to get it into the air. I think Boeing can give them ~ a 12-hour airplane at about 137t DOW which will fly ~ 6000nm ESAD in any direction from DXB. I think the issue if there is one is all to do with how many engine cycles will be warranted at a specific takeoff temperature, say 50C.

You would expect older B777 to start covering for that role (they already did that for those routes which were traditional A330 destinations), besides an expected move to DWC, towards 2023-2025 their planning may be showing they would start to see a need for a plane playing the ‘regional’ role when they see most of their fleet is starting to shape around A380/B777X/B777ER (latest of the line)

End of 2017 their will not be any older 777 left, only 777-300ER and A380. While 777-300ER numbers will increase slowly, some new birds replacing old birds, the A380 fleet will grow significantly.

This is how I envisage it, B777ER’s started arriving 2005, 2017 the oldest of these may be start retiring (based on a 12-year operational life), at this time you would expect the cycle to start and repeat itself were the oldest B777ER’s would be suitable for ‘regional’ role while last of ER’s enter the fleet. Then deliveries of the B777X will start 2019-2020, as the oldest of the ER’s retire & the older would be suitable for ‘regional’, 2023 - 2025 the expected time of DWC you would expect a fleet of A380/B777X/B777ER’s the newest should be between 5 - 7 years old, the oldest is of 2011 - 2013 delivery (again, based on a 12-year operational life these could be totalling around 35 at that time).

Why would Boeing do that though? It's clear that EK will use the 77W and in time, the 779 for such missions. The order for either one of the A350 or the B787 is more for regional flying which doesn't require the range you mention above.

My point was that if Boeing can deliver the 787-10 at 8t heavier than the 789 this is the range an operator can expect. In EK's case if they pass on crew rests they will save an addition ~1.5t.

So if the new order is for delivery in only 2023 or later, does this mean the cancellation of the A350 order had less to do with what is being offered by Airbus and more to do with the reduced capacity requirements of EK? Seems to me that once EK committed to A380 and 77W/779 there isn't space in their fleet or at DXB for more aircraft and not the stated reasons as change of specification from Airbus being the main reason for cancellation.

The change of specification gave EK their way out of the contract, seeing that they once asked for more seats and range from the A35K (which Airbus duly delivered with the new specifications), they used this as their reason to cancel their order to cover for less than anticipated growth requirements.

Emirates was not pleased with the changes made to the A350-1000 (at least at first), but as Airbus did not change the A350-900, it does stand to reason that they swapped their entire A350 order for more A380s (and 777Xs) because that was where the "immediate need" was and they could wait for the smaller "regional" fleet.

Hey guys,
For ages I have believed that Emirates would eventually turn its attention towards lower density (than 777/A380) and/or more 'regional' routes to fuel additional growth. I have always seen this as a potential weakness against QR and EY who were better poised to take advantage of such routes with their A32Xs and 787s/A33Xs/A35Xs. Iran especially seemed like a strong medium term growth opportunity for the ME3.
A new version of the 787/A350 specifically tailored for EK may be possible. Boeing did the 747-400ER largely for QF, and have done the 737-700ER for All Nippon plus the 737-700C for Air Algerie and big business. A fifty frame launch order for a modified version of either jet may be enough to encourage A&B to invest in R&D at least. I wonder if the 'other two' would be interested as well?
Cheers,
Bunumuring.

It seems that the only change to the 787-10 Emirates was talking about, was increased engine power. I do not know how much reserve the GEnx-1B or Trent 1000 have. If this would need a completely new engine version, I would expect it not been done for 50 frames.

An increased MTOW 787-10 would hit several snags. The 787-10 is a minimum change stretch of the 787-9. Same wing, same MLG, same engine and a slight, 2t, increase in MTOW and I think that hits the limits.

A 787-10ER would be a new bird with substantial changes, perhaps better for EK, but perhaps worse for other customers.
There would be needed work on the wing, MLG and a bigger engine of the size of the Trent XWB84. To build this bird to get the 50 frame order of Emirates only, would be IMO not a good choice for Boeing.

I think the main reason that we do not see a decision between the two frames on offer, the A350-900 and the 787-10, is, that Emirates has time, as they do not need this frames right away.

So currently the A359 suits as is but the current 78X could carry marginally more people but not during the heat of the UAE summer or middle of the day.

And of course EK can use this order further down the line as leverage for their desired A380neo.

I don't see them fitting either aircraft with crew rests as this is a regional aircraft order. Which limits operating time to less than 10 hours. I don't see any meaningful temperature extremes at DXB that would prevent a full passenger load out to 10 hours.

At the extremes it could be a cargo issue but even that would be small. The engine maintenance perspective could be meaningful. But it is certainly not about carrying the passengers.

Quoting mjoelnir (Reply 38):
It seems that the only change to the 787-10 Emirates was talking about, was increased engine power.

Emirates asked for an 84,000 lbf engine.

“That makes life difficult” for the 787-10, whose engines generate about 76,000 pounds of thrust. Clark said his team estimates that up to 84,000 pounds would be needed to assure take-off with full loads all year round.

“On the A350-900, we don’t get those kind of operating conditions restrictions,” he added.

Clark readily concedes that few other airlines, if any, have such a requirement and that neither Boeing nor the 787-10 engine-makers are going to essentially develop a new engine just for Emirates. “They’ll probably say, Look, that’s it,” he said, calling that a “perfectly reasonable stand.”

Boeing responded "no". Perhaps both parties will find a tradeoff somewhere.
What we leave behind is not as important as how we've lived.

The article states "up to" an 84,000 lbf engine.

Yes, so what it means is, there will be times during the course of the year when 84,000 lb's of thrust is required from the 78X's engines when operating at full capacity out of Dubai's airports.

Quoting KarelXWB (Reply 41):

...is taking the correct inference from Clark's comment. Another is that it doesn't currently compete on an equal footing with the A359.

One can say there will be times during the course of the year when they won't need that thrust requirement.

I believe 80000 lbf. engines are already in development so the gap is being closed. EK are noted for having performance wish lists at the extreme edge of the envelope but having to settle for something a little less.

The -ER version adds weight that needs power to get it into the air. I think Boeing can give them ~ a 12-hour airplane at about 137t DOW which will fly ~ 6000nm ESAD in any direction from DXB. I think the issue if there is one is all to do with how many engine cycles will be warranted at a specific takeoff temperature, say 50C.

The newer high temperature CMC parts from the LEAP and GE-9X could (likely IMHO) be scaled into the GEnx by then, so the performance gap might be filled with no sacrifice in cycles. The test bed for the GE-9X CMC parts is a GEnx.

As posted by Rotating14, EK appear to be nearing a decision.

http://www.flightglobal.com/news/art...-on-a350787-order-decision-426069/

Quote:
The evaluation includes the 787-9 along with the larger but shorter-range 787-10, which Clark describes as "a good 10h aircraft". The focus of the Airbus evaluation is on the A350-900 rather than the larger -1000 or proposed "-2000" stretch, which Clark refers to as the "A350-1000-ish" as its design specification is still "a moveable feast".

Cat and mouse.He. I'll retake the 350 if he gets a guarantee on the 380neo.Which is fine as they were going to do it anyway.imho.

He's not getting that guarantee. Airbus is not going to follow through with the A380 NEO until after 2025, maybe. See below.
