@jonostrower Embraer achieved 17.3% improvement in per seat fuel burn on the E190-E2 (vs. E190-E1). Same # of seats on both. 11 percentage point improvement comes from the engine. Balance (6.3 pts) split 60% wing improvement, 40% fly-by-wire & horizontal stabilizer sizing. #E190E2.

@Pat_Host Airbus is experimenting with LG TVs inside the aircraft, potentially removing windows from the aircraft which would improve aerodynamics and fuel economy #FIDAE2018.
