'Absolute Mayhem': Is Saj Ahmad kidding?

Ever since Saj Ahmad begin hiding his 'analysis' behind a password, Fact Checker has ignored his rantings. His Tweets @strataero have been amusing diversions when you take the time to read them. His continuing shameless promotion of all things Boeing and rants of all things Airbus weere so over the top that how could anyone take him seriously?

His Paris Air Show post, Absolute Mayhem: 787-10, is even more over the top than his usual rantings. The 787-10 will be a good airplane, of that there is no doubt. Is the A350-1000 as bad as Saj suggests? Tell that to the airlines that are now lining up to order the airplane and the possibility that Airbus will create a production line dedicated to the demand for it.

'Absolute Mayhem'? More likely 'Absolutely Unbelievable'.


  1. Saj's comments are just nonsense. The -10 will of course be a good aircraft and maybe end up as the best-seller of the B787 product line, but that does not imply that another aircraft, especially the A350-1000, will be a bad aircraft. The market tells us the real story...

  2. Boeing was too slow in launching the 787-10 as they have been lately. Had this plane be launched 1 year earlier or even 6 months earlier, it could have eaten someof airbus lunch. Sorry boeing you have became too lazy, the 737max lauched 1 year later than neo, the 787-10 and 777X took too long to launch that is why the will not challenge airbus line up as you expected.
