How Much Bigger Is The A350X Than The A330?

Mon Jan 22, 2007 4:32 am

Is the A350X any bigger than the A330? Or is it exactly the same airframe?

Will it have variants? Like the -200 and -300?

The A350XWB has seats from 270-350 and variants -800 -900 and -1000.
I'm sure it's bigger becuase it's wider and longer.

The A333 can seat a maximum of 335 passengers. The A332 can seat a maximum of 293 passengers. The A350 can seat about 250-350 passengers. It seems like the A350 and A330 are the same thing except the A350 is larger in size.

In coach the A350 will seat 9 abreast vs. 8 abreast like the A330.
I bought a Venus Fly Trap today and was going to name it "Republican" but the fly trap is beneficial to the environment.

What about the 777-300ER, it is much larger than the A333

the -800 is about 3m shorter than a 333
the -900 is about 3m longer than a 333
the -1000 is about 10m longer than a 333

All of them are about a foot wider fuselage over a 333.

There are five currently planned. In ascending order of size:

A350XWB-800
A350XWB-900
A350XWB-900F (Freighter)
A350XWB-900R (Long Range)
A350XWB-1000

Quoting 8herveg (Thread starter):

The A350X-800 will be about 10% smaller then the A330-300 and A340-300.
The A350X-900 will be about 10% larger then the A330-300 and A340-300.
The A350X-1000 will be about the same size as the A340-600.

The 773 will hold the record for the most in a twin in scheduled service for quite a while yet I think. Emirates have a 442 seat config which includes business class seating as well. In high density economy the 773 should be able to go over 500 seats easily, which I would imagine would be quite nasty to fly in.

ANA seats 524 in their domestic 773.

So yes, it will hold the record for a long time!
