Re: Does Airbus need to make an aircraft larger than the A350-1000?

With the completion of the A380, the A350-1000 is the largest aircraft Airbus makes. Still it is not as big as the B777-9. Will/should they make anything bigger than the A350-1000? Like the A350-2000? Or an all new design? This is to compete with the B777-9 I don't think so, the 777X (which I belie...
