Re: Updated: Reuters: Airbus launches A350 freighter

777s and 747s use powered cargo loading systems on the main deck. I don’t believe Airbus has ever put a powered main deck cargo loading system on their commercial freighters. A321s, A330s and A300s require people to physically push the pallets into their positions. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j...

Re: Updated: Reuters: Airbus launches A350 freighter

What has noe been discussed here yet is that perhaps one of the main drivers for Airbus to launche the 350F is to break Boeing´s monopoly in the WB freighter market. The market does not like a monopoly and for Airbus this is a win-win situation. On the contrary, many have pointed out the opportunit...

Re: Updated: Reuters: Airbus launches A350 freighter

It's probably easier for Boeing to do the Xf - just take all the Cargo handling systems/floor structure and doors that make make an 77F unique and are already engineered and put them in a shortened 777-9. That should not take any longer than an 350-950F and possibly less time. The test team is alre...

That the 350F is going to have really tough competition with the 777ERSF. It sounds like the 350F will be able to lift about the same about as far for probably somewhere around 2-3x the price. While I agree that the ERSF would be a problem for the A350F despite searching I have yet to find any defi...

Where they will fall down is if they don't make it the best it can be and not optimize it so it can be as flexible as possible which is where A330F lost out to 777, and it never had a chance compared to 767 due to its wingspan issues. A half baked solution won't cut it. Now something like Folding t...

The reason you mentioned is reason enough. They can only price out 350F for so long. The fate or success of the passenger version in many cases has little bearing on the freighter. Any which way you look at it. 747-8 being a positive example and 330 being a negative one. Now, it’s not as if the pas...
