Re: AirAsia X considering converting some A330neo's to A321neo's, doesnt rule out ordering 787's in the future

Let´s see they have 66 FIRM on order, ordered additional 34 and now consider that they MAY convert some of those 34 to the 321 and people still cannot cope with the fact that they will receive 330NEOs. That is Anet at its best.

Some people seem to forget that the 321 is by far the best selling plane in its segment. Airbus is in no dire need to produce something new. IMO they just look at different options to make it even better. They either go simple (XLR) or 322. It is very misleading to think that Airbus is only focusing...
