How Capable could an 737-10ER be??

Wed May 13, 2020 7:59 am

Given that NMA/NSA is probably a long way from reality - how Capable could an 737-10ER be?

With the -10 Stretch I would have to assume that the -10 tail is larger than optimal - but would this allow more thrust which in turns allows more fuel to be carried and MTOW to grow?

How much more thrust could they get out of the LEAP engines within say 2-3 years (when Airliner demand may recover)?Any idea of what MTOW they were contemplating?

Is the MAX Wing not larger than A321 with more fuel capacity?

Could they not do the same as the A321 and build additional tankage into the Cargo Bay?

How far could it fly with what MTOW?

At least this topic won't be as depressing as all the other ones about how much production will decline.

It isn't a question of how capable it could be rather how capable it needs to be and it needs to be capable of getting from Europe to East Coast America with a little bit of headroom.
If that can be done at the expense of some cargo space then it will find a market.
