Currently, we are witnessing a kind of buzz that we haven’t seen since the 1970s when the First Lady Pat Nixon cracked a bottle of Champagne over the new plane, the Boeing 747. That plane created a new era of mass tourism.
Nowadays, we are welcoming new planes that will also change our ways of traveling and will make it a lot more enjoyable. According to the OAG’s London-based senior analyst, John Grant, the airline industry have been seeking a new, game-changing aircraft for years, and finally, they are here.
These planes will genuinely change everything in order to move us to a new generation of great comfort. So get ready for a different era, and discover the new planes that will change the way you travel!
The Airbus A220 basically popped up out of nowhere, and it is expected to be in the United States early 2019. This plane is a rebranding of the Bombardier CS300 series, which was achieved earlier this year, thanks to the European airframe manufacturer.
However, the big buzz about this plane is the fact that domestic flights will become way comfier in coach. The seat sizes of A220 and the seating layout will stand out from the typical one, which is awesome!
Delta Airlines ordered 75 C Series planes, which makes it the first customer.
The partnership between Boeing and Embraer gave birth to Embraer E2, which is an extension of the popular regional jet line of the Brazilian jet maker. The plane can still carry the exact same amount of travelers, and it also has many similar advantages of Airbus A220.
The big buzz about E2 is how it is going to provide a better ride than any typical regional jet. The costumes of this plane are Brazil’s Azul, China’s Hainan Airlines, and Norway’s Widerøe. Expect to see this plane throughout 2018.
Airbus A350-1000 is the longest flight in the world, which Singapore Airlines have re-launched again and it is expected to be seen in mid-2018, mostly in October. This plane is the super-sized edition and the sibling of A350-900.
This one could actually make the marathon run possible. Qatar Airways decided to configure this new Airbus and add 10 more business class seats and 34 in coach for a total 327 passengers.
The Airways also promised to increase the comfort of the passengers with adding the lowest engine noise level, air temperature control, and full LED mood lighting that helps with sleep.
The big buzz about is flying over 9,000 miles without stopping and challenging 777X of Boeing for the twenty-hour flight derby.
777X is, by far, the best and biggest product line of Boeing with the capacity of holding 406 passengers. One of its remarkable features is the special and unique folding wing. Technically, it bends at the very right angle in order for the wide body to be scrunched into the airports’ small docking spaces.
In 2020, The Emirates airways are expected to launch it into service: Qatar, Lufthansa, and Singapore are the first customers. The big buzz about this plane is the worthy heir to the 747 mantles.
Boom Supersonic is one of the first product after the Anglo-French Concorde retired for over 15 years ago of a startup company in Denver. However, this plane is not expected to be seen until 2025, and the possible customer is Japan Airlines that has the option to purchase up to 20 of the 55-seat airlines.
However, the big buzz about the airline is its ability to fly to San Francisco from Tokyo in less than 6 hours, which is pretty cool.
