The Final Chapter Of Demand Number 10: A Summary Of Things To Come


What this booklet was to accomplish for addressing 10 thought provoking subject matters from a passenger perspective, and why the aviation industry straddles so many different customer types. The customer types have many opposing objectives as well as many common goals within its industry. A Boeing perspective has a clear vision of its commercial aircraft producing function and must compete in the field with its airline customers.

Mission/Vision provided from: 


Boeing Commercial Airplanes is committed to being the leader in commercial aviation by offering airplanes and services that deliver superior design, efficiency and value to our customers and a superior flying experience to their customers. Today, there are more than 10,000 Boeing commercial jetliners in service; airplanes that fly farther on less fuel, airplanes that reduce airport noise and emissions, airplanes that provide passenger-preferred comfort while delivering superior bottom-line performance to operators. Leadership for today and tomorrow. That's a better way to fly.

Judging briefly what this tells this presentation, Boeing is strongly in it with this statement,… 

while delivering superior bottom-line performance to operators. Leadership for today and tomorrow. That's a better way to fly.

Below, is a recognition to its airline customer while it structures its mission towards for that customer while giving an inference to the travel passengers.

The superior flying condition for its passenger customer is affected by an airline’s own goals in the service and capacity areas. Boeing provides an over-all superior environment and advanced technology for passengers. Where the airline controls the passenger configurations for its own profitability and business success. Once again the passenger controls very little demand on its aviation ride.

It is better observed where Boeing has constructed many options for an airline’s consideration. When the airline has a business plan, Boeing commercial airplane flexibility is a big tool box for it to purchase its product. The airline can simply buy seats, adjust colors and offer amenities for which a Boeing produce airplane can offer. Boeing would diminish its product selling capacity to an airline customer, if it controlled airline configuration for the sake of the passenger. Boeing only offers possibilities for future passengers of an airline. There is a separation from the manufacturer and passenger at this point. Boeing sells the ability to do many things for any perspective passenger, but leaves that decision to its airline customer.

Every time a passenger complains about a 787 experience because it was too cramped, it becomes an issue of the airline and not the Boeing 787. ANA, Boeing's first customer in delivery, used the 787-8 by only installing an 8 across configuration in the main cabin. ANA established a configuration for its 787-8 with 8 across economy seating for 180. The airplane capacity has about 222 seats in two classes. They were on to something as an airline customer to Boeing. The manufacturer always said the 787 was design for 8 across seating but had the ability for 9 across seating for which a preponderance of 787’s goes 9 across in the economy section.



The final say for the airline culture, if passengers demand cheap tickets, then it has lost its demand power. If airlines configures beyond the standard design constraints, it cannot blame Boeing. If Boeing provides so many options for idle hands, it has provided enough rope to hang itself.

What is coming is meat hook seating for cheap tickets that can fly 9,000 miles leaving a smaller carbon footprint.
