Boeing forecasts that, within the next 20 years, over 38,000 new airplanes are needed to accommodate passengers and cargo. Passengers expect more for less from airlines. Consequently, costs per ticket are expected to decline and on-time statistics to increase. These expectations are passed onto the airplane and engine manufacturers to constantly innovate, reduce operational costs, and increase the uptimes of airlines.</div> <div class="field-image-promo"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_promo" width="595" height="335" alt="" src="http://aviationweek.com/site-files/aviationweek.com/files/275612_low_jpg_srgb.jpg?1484329685" /> </div> <div class="field-link-target"> <span>Open In New Window:&nbsp;</span> No </div> <p><a href="http://aviationweek.com/value-creation-digital-aviation-network" target="_blank">read more</a></p> Technology Fri, 13 Jan 2017 17:46:00 +0000 1566721 at http://aviationweek.com
