Looking forward to seeing this beauty!
7810 Seven Eight Ten would be a good indicator
Calvin: that was the point of the question. I'm looking for a three-digit indicator, per the examples you would see on an airline schedule: 737-800 becomes 738; a 747-8i becomes a 748. This isn't that.
Whoops...CORRECTION. Make that B781, but we will see.
Seven Eight One
Well, thank you. And what would criteria be for said naming? Because it would preclude using another "781" for any future potential downsize craft on the same frame being the "781", short for 787-11, (should Boeing go the Airbus route to smaller craft, á la the A318,-9s). Probably stretching the probabilities beyond their reality, but fun to discuss... thanks for your conjecture, Scott.
