A350 looks so much better when that nose is painted up. Looks awkward and ungainly when not painted IMO.

It looks so ugly when it doesn’t have the black paint around it’s cockpit windows.

I still have yet to understand why Airlines purchase 2 different aircraft. Ethiopian has 787s as well. Can someone explain the purpose?

Maybe they’ll get rid of the one that performs worse out of the two. Also, they might just want to see which plane fits better with the airline.

A350 is larger than the 787 for starters. 787-8 is too small to adequately compete with thr A350. 787-9 battles it up with the A350-800 (Whatever is left of that program) and the A350-900. However, even the 787-9 to A350-900 is not a very fair comparison because the A350-900 still is larger-The range is closer though. However comparing the 787-10 to the A350-900 is fairer. They have roughly the same pax capacity, but the 787-10 has less range.

Assuming you’re talking about ET operating both airliners, they are similar, but different. Different enough to justify operating both.

As for A320s in 737 fleets, there are a variety of reasons such as airlines taking the cheaper bid, the shortcomings of the 737-400 and 737-900/ER, and (possibly) political reasons(?)

Same with Qatar and Signapore (787-10 orders)

And Singapore’s 787-8 and 787-9 orders for Scoot

I’ve seen the 787 occasionally at Dublin so hopefully they’ll do the same for this.
