If this thread has an inbuilt assumption that the A330neo will mean that there will be no more A330ceo, then I think that assumption is wrong. Assuming that Airbus and RR have not gone mad, they will continue with all four models of the A330 (-200, -300, -800 and -900). Why? Because this extends th...Jump to post

Funny you mention the A300 actually... it was ranged at around 4000 nmi, which kinda makes it the pioneer domestic widebody in Australia, and also the last thus far that was actually reasonably suited to the role.

CAPA made an analysis of the potential impact of the A321LR. On the sidelines, it claims Batir Air will convert (or already has) its entire A321neo order to the A321LR. The A321neoLR will ultimately account for a much larger share of total A321neo deliveries. There could be more than 20 A321neoLR op...Jump to post

At the delivery ceremony of the first A350-1000, Airbus mentioned the A350 cockpit will get touch screen monitors in 2018.
So what are the benefits of touch screens in the cockpit? Can the crew work faster?
And it appears that Airbus will upgrade the A350-1000 cockpit by introducing touch screen monitors in the coming months.
Plenty of bitterness & jealousy towards this kid here, stay classy A.net I think much of the criticism against Alex is unfair.

Few months ago Qantas showed public interest for the 797, and is now putting down real money for 18 A321LR aircraft.
I suspect Boeing might want to close the business case in the coming months, instead of next year.
People keep repeating this as if it is fact. I guess if you repeat Airbus fake news enough it becomes fact? While I have the feeling LH wants A35J and probably won't exercise options on additional B779, I think the original order for 20 is safe.
