Reply To: A350 V B787

Back to Forum


Does the A350 have any major new tech or other innovations that the B787 doesn’t? I haven’t seen any reports explaining what they might be. I know they are both made with composites, and I think the B787 is the only one with dangerous… er, I mean innovative … batteries. If there aren’t major innovations on the A350 that don’t appear on the B787, then surely the latter is the more groundbreaking given that it is being delivered some way ahead of the A350?

I know I am showing my ignorance here. Would love my more educated fellow posters to enlighten me!
