After The A380

Wed Aug 25, 2004 2:27 am

Just guessing.....

Which do you think is going to be the next Airbus project of Airbus after the A380?

I know is so early for that, but do you think is going to be another long haul?

Or a medium range?

My guess is that they will we working in the second ones (medium range). Something like the A321.

Arguably, the gap between the 321 and the 332 is much, much larger than the gap between the 739 and 762, so it will do Airbus well to address that market.

I think, as has been widely rumored, that the 350 is the next big project.

Will be the 350 a medium or long haul? (I know is just a rumor).

Wasn't there talk of updating the 330, and have it compete with the 7E7?

I have a feeling the A350 project is already underway. Remember how quickly the A380 went from being a paper airplane to a real airplane? Airbus has a history of doing a lot of work behind the scenes and not letting the public know how far advanced they are on any given project. I suspect the next big project will be the redesign of the A320 family which will be getting old but 2010-2015.

The flying whale is consuming the lion's share of Airbus's capital resources, any possible "payback" from the A380 is at least five years away. Even if full production capacity of 52 A380s per year is achieved, it would be after 2010 that a traditional breakeven point of 250 units is even possible. Consequently, only incremental upgrades of the existing products will be feasible until the A380 is profitable.

IIRC the A350 will be ready 2014, flying long / medium / shorthouls, something similar to 7E7 I guess........

Just wondering after the A380 project there will have been a large gap in the supersonic area. Could Airbus look at this?

Cheers folks,

Steve.
