Hello fellow Av geeks!
The 797 has been “pretty much” confirmed to come in the future! we may know this, here are some news for the new 797 that will be coming soon
The 797 is going to be made to replace the Boeing 757, the 757 is a medium long range jet liner. The 797 will do the same, however the cockpit will be more up to date, less fuel burn.
as we know there are aircraft competes, such as… A320neo / Boeing 737Max
or B777 / A350 / B787, and so on. So what is this aircraft going to compete in?
In a few years around 2024-2025 airbus will be putting the A321XLR in service, and this plane will change the way we fly like how long a range it will have, how good of a fuel burn. So Boeing thought that we need to build a new plane, lets name it, the Boeing 797.
