Re: A350F. Airbus looking to launch: Looking for customers

In my view Boeing should have just slapped the Ge9x on the 77W/L/F and called it a day. The A350F would not compete with that IMHO. I’m not sure if that is possible, one of the changes on the 77X was to move the spanwise location of the engine further from the fuselage. If the proposed A350F can lo...
