Good move by AC; a very fine aircraft. I doubt if they'll be the AB aircraft, as they're (mostly) -200s. I think they'll be looking for RR powered -300s. Cathay springs to mind? I thought Cathay too, but some of those birds are old. Real old. Well taken care of, but old. Depends on the amount of ti...Jump to post

The a330 portion of the order, could definitely be in danger because the t1000 is not performing as promised. Lightsaber Excuse me, but the T1000 is not powering any a330. The T7000 is. What are the performance issues with the T7000? Which promise has not been kept? So far there is no report of pro...Jump to post

4.8t-5.0t/hour depending on trip length. I am somewhat skeptical but perhaps you have a better idea.

With the weight increase on the 339, there is almost no need for the A359 anymore. Delta will fly the 339 to it's limits, trans pacific, everywhere.

MTOW increase on the 777-9? Not necessarily, additional fuel tanks and reduced payload can work with the current MTOW A 352t MTOW and 181t OEW 777-9 takes 414pax on 7525nm with 129t of fuel (352-181-41=129).

There seems to be confusion as to whether the -900 and -1000 center tanks are the same size, the ACAP doesn't give tank sizes just total load, could you point us to public information on if this is true or not.

319 tonne A350-1000 was released in the Airbus product brochure in April of this year. I thought it was only a rumor. In this case a possible ULR should be based on this 319 ton or can the MTOW increase more? It was published for some time now, see page 24 https://www.airbus.com/content/dam/corpora...Jump to post
Why would all these airlines suddenly be interested in this frame when they were not in the base 35K? Extra range via increased tankage does not improve economics nor reduce the apparently excessive cost of the aircraft. Flying UULR is a niche endeavor. If there is an MTOW bump, then the payload-ra...Jump to post
FrenchBee (I hope that's what you meant) are a low cost leisure airlines and they fill their aircrafts to the brim with seats. As of now, their upcoming A35Ks are supposed to be 488 seats.

Hearing some silly fuel burn numbers for the a330-900. Neither the 787-9/10 and a359 are even close but both are faster to the tune of an hour on really long flights.

Ostrower reports the trip fuel burn is just about the same with the neo carrying 70 more passengers. It has to be said that the difference goes beyond just seat count though. The neo carries a substantially more modern and heavier interior. Interesting. The a330 in general is a larger and heavier a...Jump to post

the a330neo uses bleed air right? maybe that's a contributing factor So does the a332 and 333. My hunch is that this has nothing to do with the aircraft and could be the interiors.
