That would be a good posibility for the BWB, probably not for 1000 passenger but in the range of 300-500
If I can be permitted a silly flight of fancy for a moment, imagine 1,000 ejection seats and all those parachutes
will want to get in something that looks like it will fly

The BWB isn't meant to first fly this year. They are however, testing a model with a wingspan of 11 metres.

Mr McNerney said: “We do not have a concept yet, but are going around the airlines asking what capability they want.”
Several options are understood to be under consideration. One is a twin-aisle 737, which would allow Boeing to increase seats without stretching the aircraft too far.
