Looks nice, although I don't think I will upgrade this time around.  I ended up getting the -600 and -700 for the NGX but on the 777, not quite sure it makes as much sense.  I guess I will have to conisder the addon cost as well.

Great looking.  This is going to look fabulous on the new American Airlines livery.  Bring it on!  Also looking forward to the ER.

 

Cheers.

Yeah probably give it a miss too which is something I thought I would never say a few months ago.

The 300ER has tail strike prevention right? Or am I getting confused with the A340-600?

Looks great, but I agree with others that I probably will skip it.

 

At the very least I will hold off until we have a better picture of what the future holds.

Wheres the Air France Patented Invinco-Dirt that never actually washes off the airplane?

With the amount of time and effort required to create such a dirt layer, it has been decided to wait until a service pack rather than delay release  :lol:

The -300ER is going to open up many real-world routes, considering all the airlines that operate it.  Can't wait!

I'll also be skipping the 300ER as I have no use for it (only tend to do short/medium-haul anyway).

Yeah I'm thinking along the same lines. Especially because I just decided to get the 600/700 recently. I dont know why either...

Just wondering. Those who say they probably won't get the 300ER ( most of us don't have self control like that) but will you guys be getting the 200ER?

 

That's a definite for me too

For me it will depend on the time frame. Modeling all engine variants will certainly take time to do properly, so while I obviously can only guess, I'm thinking it will be a good while before we see anything. Especially considering the 744 and P3D porting seem to be on the short term schedule ahead of the 200ER.

 

Time will tell, but in all honesty, a good derate calculator would go a long way to mitigating my desire for the 200ER, and is something I hope we see sooner.

 

Too many unknowns to really decide right now, IMHO.

Well, I just ask myself, what new features I'll get with product, and what I can do more with it.

 

Cockpits are almost identical, flight model is a little bit different, external model is a little bit longer, there might be a taxi cameras and that's really it. 

 

Operationally, -200LR has better range, so I already have all routes available. I don't care about RL operators and liveries as I spend 100% of time in cockpit.

To conclude, -200LR is the best aircraft in family, I do not want to limit myself with less capable ones.

 

The same stands for -200ER.

The only fun I can see in the 300 over the 200 is the challenge of taxiing. Since I've already taken out a few taxi light bulbs in the 200 I think I would need the taxi cam on a longer bird. Plus, a taxi cam would add to the value of the addon. So if they can figure it out I'm in, otherwise I might put money into the NGX 600/700 so I can start flying shorter routes more realistically.
