Yes, this thread is back. More than ever after Boeing ‘teased’ the idea at the Paris Airshow.
So, here are some questions to think about and some personal answers. I’d love to hear your opinions and questions!
What do you expect with Boeing’s NMA? (Other than the basics)
Who do you think this will appeal to? Why? (Airlines)
Configuration? What kind of product will airlines put in the aircraft?
For the original thread click here.
Wide cabins, though keeping it slightly smaller than the 787/767 cabin.
Big windows like 787.
Window dimmers or Shades?
Obviously airlines with strong use of the 757 (American, Delta, Icelandair, you name it)
Big country –> Bigger (not BIG) planes to alleviate congested routes within good pricing range for the airline (Westjet…)
Wide cabins –> Economy 2-3-2 config.
No first class, but a possible mix of PY and J.
