Qatar's A350-1000 top-up order reportedly the long range model

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...

So it turns out the top-up order for five A350-1000s placed by Qatar appears to be the long range variant.

Re: 3 x 737-800's or 1 x A380

Passengers like a bit of flexibility with timing. Not everyone wants to depart at 6:00am when three 737s can depart at three separate times. The you have to take into account the airport capabilities. The 737 can land at way more airports than an A380.
