A350 programme chief Didier Evrard tells Flightglobal that the doors were considered as an option for customers wanting higher-density seating arrangements with a 10-abreast cabin.
But he says that Airbus has since backed away from the concept. "The A350-1000 will only have four [pairs of] doors," he says, stressing that these will be sufficient for evacuation.
What will be the evacuation limit with 4 doors? I can't remember this correctly but is the 777-9X coming with 4 doors as well?
