In a PR sense, yeah, but they are very expensive - they have twice as many engines but not twice the seats. A 777 is much more economic than a 747-400 on the same route

Do you think Boeing was right in making the 787? I have read somewhere that some airlines ultimately cancelled their 787 orders for 777's instead because the 777 is better at profit-making.

Also, have you noticed that actually all Boeing aircraft have a special degree of wing flex in them? The 787 wing is only more noticeably pronounced than the others. On the other hand, Airbus wings seem more stiff and reluctant to bend "gracefully" upward. However, if the A350's wings were to be able to flex like the 787's, I don't think I would like it very much. It would make Airbus seem to be a lowly imitator with no imagination or innovation at all.

Where were you this whole week, Matias? :)

I think the 787 was the right thing, but maybe starting with the small version pushed sales towards the 777.

I was in a place without the forum ;)

Do you think Boeing would make something to replace the 737?

At some point they have to, I mean the overall design is about 50 years old! Just look at how much more efficient clean sheet designs are nowadays
