787-8 or 787-9?

I keep seeing people requesting Boeing 787-8’s and Boeing 787-9’s. I thought that everybody wanted to rework the current Boeing 787. The one we already have is a 787-9, so should people be requesting the 787-9 and not the 787-8?

Don’t forget the 787-10! ;)

I’ve heard rumors about a 787 family. But the thing about rumors is you never know it they are true! I hope so though! I’d love the 787-10.

The reason I didn’t say Boeing 787-10 is because I haven’t seen anybody request one. :)

You have the freedom to request any aircraft, whether or not it has been confirmed by rumours or not. If people want to request a B788 and it has been confirmed by rumours or other people who onow, well then there is no problem with that.

If they did add the B787 they would, add the whole family I don’t get why they wouldn’t right?

Good point but seeing as it is a current generation aircraft and will set the boundary for all future planes they most likely would do the B787-8 and the B787-9 maybe not the 10 though

As said in another thread, it may not be the 787-9 who comes fist. Like the A320 family, the A321 came last and that was already in the game.

I think there is a chance for more than just the -9 since it will be free they somehow have to bring in something paid for just to compensate

I like the 787-8… I feel it’s the right size whereas the -9 feels a little too long imo
