I've read in varrious places that this change will add another 3 years to the program. Why on earth would it add 3 years?

so does that mean a A350 pilot is more easily cross crew qualified for a A380 than a A330???

Just some more "borrowed" technology for the A350... Airbus is just handing this huge market over to Boeing on a silver platter!
Airbus or Boeing - it's all good to me!

I think it would be like the 777 and the 737 NG. Theres way too much a difference in size and handling for there to be an A330/340 or 757/767 situation.

actually SNBA uses it's flightcrews both on A319 and A330
also a big difference if you ask me
Aircraft flown: B733, B734, B736, B737, B738, B744, B752, B763, B772, A319, A320, A321, A343, A346, Do328, CRJ7, E190

All the Airbus since the 320 have had similar handling, its part of the FBW.

MFF (mixed fleet flying) is done widely between the 320/330/340.
