I personally think the A350 should just be named the A330-600 or 500. Same body, tail, and wing shape, just with different engines, like the A340-600 and A340-500.

The bigger question looms for Boeing, as "797" is the only number left in the series for their next gen 737.

Why is it that for the narrow-bodies airbus uses fractional numbers A318, 319, 320, 321 but for the big beasts they use -200, -300, -800, -900 etc etc. Wouldn't it be better to use one system for all - so it would be A330, A331, A332 etc. Is this because the larger families aren't simple stretches and shrinks but more complex developments of the original airframe which don't necessarily fit into a neat sizing structure?
