Question: how different must an aircraft be before a new type rating is needed?

Not only that, but how are they going to be able to certificate this plane as an A330 derivitive - new wing, cockpit, materials, assembly line and so on....

If John says it is 90% new, then it should be certificated as 90% new.

Starting to sound like they're going to jack up the aerial and roll a new airplane in underneath it.
