We have had many (TOO MANY) Boeing versus Airbus discussions here, so lets try something new, Airbus vs. Airbus.
When the A330/340 family of aircraft were introduced, they each had a specific mission: the A330 was a large-capacity medium range airliner (that could also operate short-haul economically) while the A340 was designed for long to ultra-long range flights. With the improved versions of the A330-300 (which after a slow start is seeing a lot of sales to leading airlines), the differences between the capabilities of the 2 models have been minimalized. What is the differences in range and capacity when comparing the most advanced versions of both aircraft? Do you think that both have a future, even after the A340-500/600 airliners are introduced?
I ask that those that normally prefer Boeing products (and that usually includes me) NOT to attack Airbus this time (or any time, its boring), just be cool and maybe we can all learn something.
