First question, will there be a A360 or A370? Once Airbus has gone through the A390 (if there is one to come), what number series will they start using?

"But this airplane has 4 engines, it's an entirely different kind of flying! Altogether"

My vote is if they exhaust the 300 series for airliners, they will probably go for the 500 series since 400 is already in use and the 400-series could thus be reserved for future military developments.

I'd take the awe of understanding over the awe of ignorance any day.

Well as I could see Airbus reusing the A32x for the next upgrade/replacement e.g A322, A323, A324 etc. and we still have the possibilities of A360, A370, A390 families it could be a long while before they have to think about it.

Why don't manufacturers just re-use the model number designations? e.g A320 would always be a NB aircraft, there could be 5 generations or more of A320 they don't necesarily all have to look the same. Car manufacturers do it all the time. e.g how many generations of the BMW 3 series, 5 series, 7 series etc. have there been? or the Toyota Corrola for that matter which must be up to 12 generations by now.

Yeah, and more interesting: what will Embraer do after E195?
