Boom

Need to get in line for some of these. Europe to Aus in less than 1/2 the time. Small, premium. Will be interested to see how much fuel it uses and if they have solved the noise problem. The company name makes me think no.

In any case I’d be just as happy tucked up in cx first class asleep over night. It’s certainly going to cost as much .
Any time saved ultra long haul wouldn’t work well with curfews in places like lhr

The other issue is that this was conceived pre-Covid. Surmising that 4500nm is optimised for transatlantic routes, although some routes for ME based carriers might work.

A large proportion of that anticipated traffic doesn't existing currently and it's uncertain when it will return to make this even vaguely viable; it's an expensive solution for a niche problem
