EMIRATES imparable - substituir al 777-300ER con ¿¿??
Emirates está en conversaciones con Boeing para que desarrolle un modelo que substituya al B777-300ER, que tenga las mismas alas y tecnología del 787, pero con el tamaño del 777-300ER.
Además, aunque hayan pedido tantos A380s, no descartan seguir evalunado el 747-8I
Emirates pushes Boeing on 777 replacement plan
Emirates is pushing Boeing to move forward with plans for a 777-300ER successor after snubbing the 787 in favour of the Airbus A350 XWB at last week’s Dubai air show.
The 120-strong A350 deal comprises 70 firm orders (50 A350-900s and 20 -1000s) for delivery from 2014, plus 50 options. The majority of the firmly ordered A350s will replace older A330/A340s and 777 Classics, and there is still a longer term requirement where Boeing could compete with a 777 derivative.
Emirates Airline president Tim Clark says that while there could still be an opening at the airline for the 787-10 if it gets the go-ahead, his focus is on a 777-300ER replacement: “We are aware of the enhancements being studied, but are pushing them to produce a new -300ER – the same size etc - but with 787 technology and design. It would be a world beater.”
Although Boeing is coming under increasing pressure to firm up plans for a 777-300ER replacement, the path it will take and the timing of such a development is fuzzy.
