Interesting, I didn't realize that the chevrons on the engines which are to reduce noise, also increase drag, according to the a350 article.

Interesting statement about the A350: "the [A350] twinjet shares little more than 5% commonality with its predecessor [A330]."

that ought to put an end to the speculation that the A350 is just a warmed-up derivative of the A330.

Quoting Airbazar (Reply 2):

Agreed. The A350 is going to be so good and priced competitively (thank Boeing) that this will kill the A330 and the A340 as new larger variants will happen!

I can see the Airbus making tons of money on the A320/A350 exclusively. But performance targets must be met, first.

Cheers,

Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!
