In search of information of the size of the proposed A3XX, I was looking at the airbus web site, and found the following information
A3XX-50 A3XX-100 A3XX-200
----------- ---------- ----------
normal pax 480 555 656
max pax 608 840 840
wingspan 79.9m 79.8m 79.4m
length 67.9m 73m 73m
range 16200km 14200km 14200km
Problem is, there's a couple of things that seem strange to me, can anyone fill me in?
1) The wingspan on each variant is different, and stranger still, it shrinks as the aircraft gets larger
2) There doesn't seem to be any difference (other than normal pax load quoted) in the -100 and -200 - the max pax is the same, length the same, range the same. How do they fit the extra normal pax load in?
