According to these 2 documents, not much has been done to the fuel tank capacity. Also, the 787-10 weighs more than the -9 because of its length. But I do wonder if these figures have changed because these documents are old.

Which brings up the question, why is Emirates not going with -9? You get a bit of both, capacity and range.


#122

Its newer and they can do more to the interior.


#123

The -9 isn’t that old. The way I see it there just trying throw in more people per route.


#124

It’s partially funded by virgin group, which has already ordered some of the type


#125

Yes but the A350 would make more sence given there fleet renewal strategy, as well as there recent orders


#126

I’m hoping a few orders will be made towards a 747- that plane is still awesome :)


#127

Will Air New Zealand order the 787-10? It makes sense.


#128

No, they seem fine with the current 787 planes they have


#129

Perhaps a British Airways A320 NEO order is possible.


#130

I guess we’ll see, United should order some 777Xs though, they seem like the airline for it, or maybe American, or Delta, who knows, but the 777X needs some love 😍


#131

Yeah! Emirates is imo guarantee to buy the 77X


#132

They already did… I think 40 of them…


#133

They already purchased the 77X


#134

Yeah! Singapore airlines has already ordered the 777X I think


#135

Emirates has a massive order of 150 777Xs it includes 777-8 and 777-9 the deal was finalized at the 2013 Dubai Airshow


#136

It is Emirates after all! 😉


#137

If I were an airline CEO I’d wait some more time until I play around with supersonic aircraft. One of the main reasons the Concorde was brought down was because tickets were so expensive since there were so little seats. The Boom aircraft has only 55 seats, so until they can tweak the design so that there is more fuselage, I wouldn’t bite.


#138

They don’t really need the range of the -9, because they will be receiving a 777-8X, which has a little bit more than a -9. The -10 defenatly hits the sweet spot that Emirates needs.


#139

I’m surprised that no orders have been announced today


#140

ALAFCO Has announced 20 new orders for the Boeing 737 MAX
