What exactly is the benefit to the customer? Whether its the Dreamliner or A380, what are you getting that you wouldn't get on an older generation plane? Personally I think there are bigger differences between American Airlines and Virgin Atlantic than between the Dreamliner and a 747 (e.g. you get your own TV screen and edible food on Virgin)

Do you choose the destination and then choose the plane? Personally I choose the destination and then the ticket. I don't care at all if its a Boeing or an Airbus, or how big or how fast. A big plus is if they do not serve Starbucks coffee!
Actually it does make a difference, otherwise Boeing and Airbus would be developing the same aeroplanes...

You don't choose your plane, no. However, the options given to you by different aircraft means airlines can offer you better faster options and airlines will select their aircraft accordingly.

So no, you don't choose directly, but if you look at my post, I don't really ask that do I? I asked what you, my fellow EFers, think the market will want.
