After reading this article I don' t no where the numbers come from for the NEO aircraft for a model not yet in service. I don't know the Max numbers as well. However, I do know each airline customer lining up for a Max or NEO purchases get to gloat over its choice. I tried to come to a conclusion for the ANA case on the NEO, from a seat cost per passenger and the distance range for the NEO. This being called an analysis, does not give a citation on raw numbers, but agrees with ANA's sensibility on how it will replace old equipment with new NEO's and New 777-300, -9's.
The Airbus A350 -1000 can't hold up against the 777-9. ANA filled its play book with more 787-9, as it will replace all older 767's in time. Where does this leave JAL with its wide bodies from Airbus? It leaves them hoping the Airbus sales team told them the truth about the Bus.
