Questions about the new Boeing 7E7

Recommended Posts

It's all new....Replaces the 767 pretty much...much more range with 20% better fuel burn. 10% reduction in per seat cost. The interior is unreal...large, roomy and Oval....giant Bins that take roll-aways going in, instead of longways. Much more seat and leg room (talking major improvement), it's all up pretty cool for the intended market.www.boeing.com/commercial/7e7/flash.html

OK, short version...>Did anyone know anything about the boeing 7E7? yes, many people did and do.>Why is it so special?1. first new development since the 777 started over 9 years ago2. probably a make or break deal, failure here will most likely be a major setback for boeing (read MAJOR)3. high mach speed cruise .924. ultra fuel efficient 20-30 percent less than current similars types>Is it equalivent to any boeing or airbus series? it is planned as a midrange to supermidrange (like 757/767 or A320)>Does some of the boeing fleets will be replaced by the Boeing 7E7?yes, if succesfull, but not the long haul types (747, a340, a380)more info...http://www.boeing.com/commercial/7e7/flash.htmlhttp://www.usatoday.com/money/biztravel/20...oeing-7e7_x.htmhttp://www.nytimes.com/2003/12/17/business...;partner=GOOGLE

This plane shows the very different perceptions that the dominant airplane makers have of what the airline industry will look like in the coming 30 years. Boeing believes that the trend will be away from monster planes flying between busy hubs, with airlines looking for mid-sized planes to fly point to point. Airbus, on the other hand, sees airlines looking for economies of scale between large cities - thus the 380 - with the rest of its fleet serving the point-to-point market with planes ranging from the high 80s in seats (318) to 250+ (330 and 340). It was noted above that this is an important plane for Boeing - that is an understatement. After the sonic cruiser failed to generate any airline interest (people are not willing to pay a premium for shaving two hours off a 12 hour flight from say, Seattle to Paris), real questions exist about Boeing's market analysis ability right now. And those questions are justified. Boeing has been woefully slow catching up to AB's single cockpit design, something airlines love, and it has introduced only one brand new airliner in the past 25+ years (the 777). It's other planes are based on designs that date back to the 1970s (757/767), 1960s (747) and even earlier, 1950s, for the 737. Back, I might add, when gas was a lot cheaper than it is now and there was not a lot of desire on the part of airlines for fuel efficiency. There is a lot riding on this airplane for Boeing.

Did anyone know anything about the boeing 7E7? Why is it so special? Is it equalivent to any boeing or airbus series? Does some of the boeing fleets will be replaced by the Boeing 7E7?

That idea harks back to the F27 and Vickers Viscount!But seriously, though I respect Boeing's efforts, it disappoints me to see aircraft of character replaced by bland (more practical) designs that offer the passenger nothing more than A to B.Gone are the days of 'Fly Eastern's Prop Jet Electra' and other memorable slogans that focused on the aircraft of the time and their distinctiveness...now they're all the same we miss the more...

How about the disadvantages? Such as I think that wouldn't it take more time to evacuate the people when we encounter some unfortunate? Also, not many airport will be able to load the people in since all the dockings are different from today's standard.

I guess he saw a picture of the SC in flight and confuses the two.And that too would be incorrect assumptions on his part as the SC was planned to use normal docking systems and runways.The only aircraft currently under development or planned that will need major airport overhauls is the A380.
