Re: 787 vs A350 range

Thank you every body
All the number are for 40t payload?
40t payload is a lot for a 787-9 ?
And not so much for A350-900 in the real life
How does it change the analysis when you go with "typical payload ?" Wha is the usual penalty (rule of thumb) for 1t more of weight ?

BOEING is showing airport operators since 12 months a 777-10 at 360 t (MRW) (and more than 80 m). No secret here...
