Thank you for the answer, but I knew that.

I was just wondering about the remaining time, since the delays have now reached a relevant number and the firsts deliveries have been already postponed a lot.

btw, hope we'll see the first ANA's 787 ASAP.

I think they should firstly finish with 787 and 747-8 that will take place at 2015-2016.

What's the next number going to be, 807? 7107? I dunno.

Guess Boeing kinda dug themselves in a corner.

When it was still the 7E7, Boeing considered starting with 808... So I guess that's where they'll go.

Sexy Plane

This is, IMO, the third best looking civil aircraft currently in operation after the B737s and the B777s.

Neh, they're okay but they're not as sleek and sexy as the other three.

Same goes for Airbus. A390 and then what? A400? Boeing 808 sounds like the most probable to me.

Boeing 737? U're serious? It's horrid looking. Don't get me wrong, it's a functional plane but that's nothing nice about it.

I prefer the B777, B787, A330 and A340NG.

There's still quite a bit left to go... Like A360, A370 and A390... Pretty much enough for another generation of aircraft (not including the A350).

The real question for me it's : when they will replace the oldish B737 ?
This plane is far away from the A320 !

Oh whatever, I thought this thread was about civilian aircraft. Boeing has plenty of military numbers like B52 etc.

All they have is upgraded it to ER status which is probably a quick change of engines, plus there is a revamped interior reminiscent of what 787 will get.

Yes, it's a good refurbishment ! but Boeing have to replace this aircraft in order to scale down the fuel consumption, modernise the electronic and insert numeric fly-by-wire, use composite materials and because the exterior design is outdated !

B737 : 1968
A320 : 1987
