the 797 will offer distance with a distinction- twin aisles. Is that enough? In another issue: what is seattle doing to counter the 350-900 ultral long ranger? Concedeing that to airbus???
I have it from the highest order from the Director of the United Nations New World Order of Aircraft and Train Military Troop Movement Coordination Directorate that Boeing and Airbus that the new aircraft being developed will be named the "BoeBus" It is true that Airbus and Boeing are really one in the same just like Lowes and Home Depot.
Don't we all get sick of "which is the better - Airbus or Boeing" tripe that is spread around here? Both make great products, both are world leading global enterprises. For God's sake be realistic, guys.
I'm confident the 797 NMA will not be an A321 "Me too" aircraft as some are suggesting. They already have the 737MAX series for that. Rather it will be a 767 for the 21st Century, i.e. wide-body with appropriate range capability. Pax much prefer wide-bodies over long narrow tubes, and I'm sure Boeing realises that!
If anything the A321 is a "Me Too" of the 757.
I avoid the 737 like the plague, an antiquated, narrow uncomfortable thing well past its prime
