I think everybody needs to temper expectation somewhat.What sets products like the NGX apart are the technological leaps & bounds made by the Team. Key to this is access to real world performance data. Whilst I am sure they have all they need now for the T7 (& for the 744 in all its guises should they decide to revisit the project) it is fair to say this data is not yet available for the 748F or 748 PAX; in the same way as you're not going to see F111s or C17s.The 748F has only been in service for about 4-5 months...the PERF Manual as it stands will be being re-written as we speak & in a state of constant update for a little while yet while the burn numbers settle down. The 748 PAX has not even entered commercial service yet.Finally...although off topic...please...no more calls for an A3xxx...believe it or not (& I realise this may cause a nose bleed or two amogst some readers here) there are software developers up to the very high standard set by the guys here at PMDG & some of them even live & work outside of the continental US of A & are working such a project as we speak.

This is not correct - the aircraft would not get a certification for actual commercial use if Boeing didn't know what the the performance data was ahead of time. The -8 already has full manuals (as does the 787 etc).
