787-3, The most Overpriced aircraft in its class?
« on: December 07, 2010, 11:11:21 PM »
787-3
Default Seating: 230 pax
Default Range: 3270nm
Fuel Burn: 10 825 lbs / hr
Default Cost: 168millionUSD

757-300
Default Seating: 237 pax
Default Range: 3310nm
Fuel Burn: 8 025 lbs / hr
Default Cost: 84millionUSD

Should the 787-3 Really cost TWICE as much as the 757-300? Based on these numbers, the 757-300 goes further range, lower fuel burn, HALF THE COST, lower turn around time, lower C check time, cheaper A/B checks.

The 787-8 and 787-9 has a huge range, so much MIGHT be useful. But the 787-3 just seems like a pure waste of money. Thoughts?

That's why IRL is not a very tempting target. Even japanese airlines have withrawn their orders for the 783 and converted to 788/9.

That's why they're scrapping the whole 787-3 project  :P.
No replacement for displacement

Talking about realism, eh .. No wonder no airline bought it. :D


(probably then means it will be a huge hit in AWS worlds..)

erm I think you might have gotten one thing wrong there: the configuration. If I remember correctly it's 330 instead of 230 because it was made to be a SH aircraft that would replace those beautiful 777s running those routes..... ;) Might be wrong though..

Cheers,

Ice is quite right.

Over and above the sexy hostesses, the Max seating for the 787-3 is 330 (y) whilst the Max seating for the 757-300 is 279 (y).

Best Regards

Richard

What is listed is Standard factory seating, not max seating.
