When Qatar ordered the five additional A350-1000s, we all assumed they were just standard -1000s but FlightGlobal is reporting them to be increased MTOW, Long Range models. Ring a bell? Qatar was talking about these during FIA2018. Perhaps things are developing, although nothing official from Airbus...Jump to post
So it turns out the top-up order for five A350-1000s placed by Qatar appears to be the long range variant.

On a personal level, I find the Boeing 787 to be extremely overrated. I'm not a fanboy, I simply just don't like it. All the marketing hype left me incredibly disappointed and continually does to now. I've flown on it a lot with many airlines and just never come across anything "Dreamy" ab...Jump to post

My apologies for linking to another forum. I'm currently unsure how to link pictures in etc.
Yes, A330neo news has definitely been quiet. Is this like the final wrap up of flight tests or what? When can we expect the handover?Jump to post
The time and cost of constantly switching engines is simply not worth it. If things get bad you're better off wet leasing an aircraft.Jump to post
Seems like such a silly article. How does an in-flight shutdown cause this much drama towards a company? The Trent XWB has been absolutely outstanding from EIS and has shown very few problems. That's not to say problems won't occur but it certainly doesn't explain why a simple unfortunate thing dese...Jump to post
Because it's not that easy getting a 50 year old aircraft design to comply with something like that. If you were going to invest in that, you may swell spend a bit more and build something better and more attractive.Jump to post

Gday folks, Sorry if this is in the wrong area, just a bit of a weird question.. So my son has just received an engineering studies assessment on biomedical engineering.

I think Tony is waiting to see what Boeing is doing on 797. Maybe he'll show up on the last day of the air show at Boeing's closing announcement and be the launch customer for 797. Going to bookmark this for when it happens. you heard it here first! Boeing has already stated that the 797 won't be l...Jump to post

Flagship is always your largest aircraft Not necessarily. While QFs A380 is its largest and only one with First. The 787 gets the lion's share of press and adverts with the new PER-LHR route and better Business Class. This may well change when the A380 gets upgraded from 2019, but for now the 787 i...Jump to post

Why are you teasing us about a teaser video to which you do not link?
Over the course of a 1h 30min flight from Toulouse to Lisbon, the A330-900 reportedly burned 8t out of the ~20t loaded, despite being a full power takeoff at 168t. Passengers reported the aircraft noise level as being incredible and Airbus is touting it to be better than any competitor. Source: Flig...Jump to post

New tcds for a350- confirms 316t mtow for -1000 available. This will add another hour to the aircraft's endurance.
Extend the runways at the factories, build an A380 Beluga, ship 2 fuselages and wings at the same time and wham you've got yourself an efficient production line. Oh wait...........Jump to post
