The aircraft are still the same, but they will have a significantly shorter flying range, German media reported. The new technical specifications of the Boing jets were revealed by aerotelegraph.com.
At the same time, the machines have also become heavier due to a number of interior changes. For example, there are new premium seats that can be converted into beds and weigh more than the old ones. Moreover, additional seats were installed in Boeing 777 and 787 aircraft to increase the maximum number of passengers that can be carried during one flight.
These factors may affect the performance of the aircraft. Therefore, Boeing has adapted new technical specifications for its aircraft and reduced its flying range.
For instance, the range of Boing 787-9 was reduced by 665 nautical miles or 1,230 kilometers. Instead of previous the 8,300 nautical miles it now can fly a maximum of 7,635 nautical miles or 14,140 km. The aircraft’s equipment has not changed, Boeing stated.
