RE: A350 In Service Thread - Part 2

Thanks Stitch.

A delta north of 2000kg/hr is larger than that between the 333 and the 772.

Is it correct to say that the 359 with approximately the same OEW as the 772 burns about 1000kg/hr less fuel?

It is rather ironic that the 787 (the point-to-point and hub-buster plane) lost out to the 359 when Delta decided to shrink it's Narita hub, and fly non-stop from the US to Asia.
